“Let’s be honest, it was a difficult part,” he began, before adding: “A guy who gets high, takes his shirt off and doesn’t get along with his wife…”

With a cheeky smile on his face, he continued: “It was a big stretch,” before the audience began to laugh, including Jennifer Aniston, who let out a “woo-hoo” while clapping.

Jennifer, who was nominated in the category of Female Actor in a Drama Series, also took out the gong for her portrayal in The Morning Show.

Jennifer, 50, caused further excitement on the red carpet when she arrived wearing a designer ring that was identical to the original engagement sparkler that Brad, 56, once used to propose.

What’s more, a source previously told New Idea that the pair could even be planning to adopt a baby together!

Rumours are swirling Brad and Jen also made a top-secret visit to an orphanage in Mexico, where they were both spotted over the holiday period on January 1.
