Good thing Angelina Jolie seems like the most secure person on earth!

Awwwww. Remember the good old days when these two kiddies were happily married? Seems like a lifetime ago. However, they are finally back together-at least professionally.
Brad Pitt has been giving Jennifer Aniston career advice. "She wants a change. She doesn't want to be labeled just as a romantic comedy actress, so she called Brad for help," a source tells BettyConfidential.
"Brad has been reading scripts for her trying to find the right films for her to branch out into. She trusts him. He has a knack for this stuff," the source adds. She also trusted him when he set off to start filming a little film called Mr. and Mrs. Smith alongside Angelina Jolie, but hey.
"It was his idea to for her to go after Horrible Bosses because the character she'll play is different than any character she's played before. Although, the film is still a comedy, it's a sex comedy," our source continues. Aniston plays a sex-obsessed orthodontist. "There are scenes in the movie where Jen will shock the audience. They're not used to seeing her in this type of a role, but it's still a comedy, which is her forte."
Although Brad broke poor Jen's heart, humiliated her and left for the startlingly beautiful Angelina Jolie, Jen is still open to Brad's opinion when it comes to her career. Says our source: "Brad told Jen, 'you need to take what you are good at and use that to build on something else.' He's given Jen a few other scripts to read. He also thought it was a great idea for Jen to start getting experience behind the camera, directing."
Jen will direct Counter Clockwise, a drama about a psychologist who conducts an experiment on reversing the aging process by making her patients believe they are younger. "Brad thought it was an excellent idea, says our source. "She's really happy that she turned to him for help. He loves reading scripts for her. It gives them more reasons to see each other and more reasons for meetings at his Plan B office. Plus, Jen looks up to him. He's a master in this business. She has a good handle on her career, but she's gotten to the point where she needed a change and didn't know in what direction she should go and Brad was right there for her helping in any way he could."
The question still remains: How does Angie really feel about the ex couple seeing each other more often?
