Hopefully they won't cross paths

Jennifer Aniston is reported to be eyeing up properties in London’s Richmond – the same area where ex-husband Brad Pitt and his fiancée Angelina Jolie are planning to spend the next couple of years.

Actress Jen, 43, is currently filming comedy drama Miss You Already in the capital and has asked her reps to view homes for her in the south-west London borough loved by Brad and Ange.

‘She hasn’t had anything to do with Brad since their 2005 divorce,’ says a source.

‘But if they are both living in the same neighbourhood it could lead to awkward encounters.’

Brad, 48, and Angelina, 36, who got engaged last month, rented a house in Richmond last year and are expected to return there this week following their holiday in the Galapagos Islands.

‘Film stars like it there,’ a source tells The Sun, ‘because it’s part of London yet has a country feel.’
