It was a close one when celebrity exes Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt narrowly missed each other at the Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood on Friday. According to People, it would have been an awkward run-in since Pitt was with his children and wife, Angelina Jolie, while the Friends star was there with boyfriend, Justin Theroux. “Justin and Jennifer skipped the popcorn and went straight in. Like five minutes later, Brad and the kids came out of the theater. They just missed each other,” said a source who witnessed the potential run-in.

Cupid’s Advice:

It’s a small world, so chances are you’re bound to run into an ex when you least expect it. Cupid has some tips:

1. Just say hi: Saying hi to an ex isn’t saying you want to get back together or admitting they were right.  Don’t be afraid to say “hi.” It makes things a lot less awkward.

2. Wish them the best: Even if you don’t mean it, always say that you wish them the best.

3. Be happy: If you’re happy and secure with yourself, chances are your run-in won’t be awkward.
