When the pair called it a day in 2005, Jen had to give up her dream home and it was something that broke her heart at the time.
Now, Brad has brought the $79million (€70.4million) property back into her life in the form of her birthday gift.
How amazing is that?
The present looks like an extension of an olive branch – so could there be a reconciliation happening?
Well, Jen has got her dream Beverly Hills home that she used to live in with Brad back – what a birthday gift, right?
With Brad attending the bash and gifting her with their former house, are they getting back together?
According to model Caprice Bourret, she believes that they were the perfect match.
The 47-year-old told New magazine, she said, ''I had dinner with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie separately, though I can't remember if they were married at the time. Brad was amazing, Angelina was a b****. She didn't say one word the entire night. She just sat there looking into space."
Matthew bagged Monica's cookie jar for Kudrow, who played Phoebe Buffay on the classic sitcom. The instantly recognisable prop now sits in the star's home, where she probably puts her granny's infamous Nestlé cookies.
The 55-year-old showed the jar to her 1.6 million followers on Instagram, and Friends fans freaked out, as predicted. She captioned the snap; "My wrap gift from Matthew Perry…”ooh, look at the time, I’ve gotta go.”" BLESS HER.
Lisa had previously explained the tale behind Matthew's choice of present to Comedy Central.
"It’s this cookie jar that was in Monica and Rachel’s apartment, and there’s a clock face on it,’ she began. "He gave it to me because… I had a scene where I was supposed to say, “Ooh, look at the time, I gotta go!”" she said.
"Well, I wasn’t wearing a watch. Because we’d rehearsed it but no one thought about it. As we were shooting, and the audience was there… it was coming up and I was like, uh oh, I’m about to say, “Look at the time.” I don’t see a watch… there’s no clock anywhere…"
"So I point to the cookie jar and say, “Look at the time, I gotta go!” So afterwards Matthew Perry went, “Did you point to the cookie jar and say ‘look at the time’?” It was the dumbest fix, so lame… and then David Crane came over and said “what are you looking at?”’
"It was so stupid of me… that’s my fix! He asked Warner Bros, he got special permission and he gave that to me." Awww, gowan Matthew. What a great pal.
Matt LeBlanc was also asked about props which he stole on the show, and he revealed he took the Magna Doodle on the back of Chandler and Joey's door for an electrician who drew the artwork for every episode;

Gift wrapping is serious business, and cannot be taken for granted.
Whether you can’t wrap a present to save your life or are the Wrap Queen of 2018, these cute ‘n’ chic ways to package your parcels this Christmas are the bomb.
Y’all are welcome, if you wrap gifts like these then you’ll earn some MAJOR brownie points…
1. The Car
All you need is brown paper, some string and a mini-tree (cut part of a bush and spray paint the tips white). Honestly this is just too adorable, the present outside of the gift is just as good as inside.
2. Animal style
Why give a regularly wrapped gift when you can create a zoo of animal presents with some coloured paper, googly eyes and markers.
3. The Colour-Me-In
Why give them store-bought wrapping paper when you could let their inner Picassos shine through?
So much paper is wasted when it comes to wrapping gifts, it would be lovely to create something artistic with the material.
4. The Music Sheet
As Madonna once sang; “Music…makes the people…come together…yeah.”
This applies for wrapping presents too, FYI. Try using music sheets to package your gifts, and you’ll be the new musical diva of Christmas.
5. Santa Paws
This one is a slightly unusual tactic to take this festive season, but maybe it’s worth a shot? Unless PETA hear about it…*winces*
Surprise a loved one with a wrapped up kitty kat this year, unless Santa Claws rips her way out first.
6. Marvel at the Marble
Some gold and paint on white paper mixed with watery dark tones can create a marble effect like MAGIC.
It’s honestly looks so sophisticated, we can’t even cope.
7. The Chalkboard
Get yourself some black wrapping paper and white makers to create the chalkboard effect, and you could even write a cute lil’ message especially for your loved one to read.
If its a sibling who you constantly squabble with, you could also just write: ‘Santa prefers me.’
8. Flower Power
If you’ve got a penchant for origami, this is the gift wrapping idea for you.
We’re going to assume that most of you don’t, in fact, have an obsession for origami.
Nevertheless, you can craft flowers by watching some decent Youtube tutorials, or just using cut up coloured sugar paper layered on top of one another, and using black fringed paper for the centre.
It’s probably harder than it looks, but it could be worth a try…

Buying a gift for your friends or family can be difficult enough when they don't possess 'notions.'
What are notions, you ask? Well, it's essentially when a person has grandiose elements of extravagance; whether in terms of fashion, style, food & drink, décor or just in their everyday life.
They drink non-fat, no-foam, five-shot half-caffeine pumpkin spice latte in a special cup at a certain temperature and will refuse to do most activities due to footwear, except yogalates.
You'd never catch them drinking cans, especially not Tesco lager; they're most likely only drinking a craft beer that no one has heard of or a slimline tonic with lime cordial and a shot of vodka on the side.
Plebs such as us probably would take a taxi or public transport to a club, whereas someone with 'notions' might take a large limousine with white doves as their accessories.
According to the Urban Dictionary definition:
…You get the idea. It's luxurious hipster-ism.
So, how does one buy a present for someone who are that little bit too big for their boots? It's hard, but not impossible.
Here are our top 20 gifts for those with notions.. proceed with monetary caution.
