每日英語跟讀 Ep.841: About USA - The most talked about moment from the SAG Awards? Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston meeting face-to-face
Their marriage ended nearly 15 years ago, but many pop culture junkies are still holding out hope that Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt will someday get back together. The one-time power couple gave fans a tiny sliver of hope when they bumped into each other at the SAG Awards on Sunday night — oblivious that their interaction would be more talked about than any of the awards.
The stars’ five-year marriage famously ended in 2005 and Pitt soon started dating his co-star from "Mr. & Mrs. Smith," Angelina Jolie. Jolie and Pitt married in 2014 and raised six children together but separated in 2016 ultimately divorced in 2019.
Now, fans appear to be having a frenzy online. The video of Pitt watching Aniston’s speech received 4 million views overnight and the couple’s interaction received its own "Twitter Moment."
"Brad gazing at Jen made my day, month and year," one person tweeted.
Banned! New York sends plastic bags packing 禁！紐約掰了塑膠袋
Consumerist mecca New York targets its throwaway culture this weekend with a ban on single-use plastic bags that has been years in the making and is still rare in America.
Environmental activists welcome the new law but caution that exemptions will weaken its effect, while some small businesses worry the ban might negatively impact their profits.
New York’s older residents note that plastic bags only became available in US grocery stores in 1979, signaling how quickly habits can change.
"When I was growing up we brought our own bags," shopper Denise Shaleaon told AFP, adding of the ban: "The New Yorker will have to live with it!"
