It’s a Fight Club reunion!

Brad Pitt and Helena Bonham Carter shared a sweet reunion on Sunday night at the 2020 SAG Awards, where they were all smiles as they chatted and embraced each other in a friendly hug during the ceremony in Los Angeles.

Photos - Stars - Pitt - Bonham - Carter

While it’s unclear what they were discussing in photos snapped of the two stars, it’s unlikely Pitt, 56, and Bonham Carter, 53, were talking about the underground sparring group from the film — because, as any fan knows, the first (and second!) rule of fight club is, “You do not talk about fight club.”

Released in 1999, Fight Club (based on the book of the same name, by Chuck Palahniuk) tells the story of a “Narrator,” played by Edward Norton, while Pitt’s Tyler Durden is a mental projection of him. Bonham Carter plays Durden’s (and, in turn, the Narrator’s) love interest, Marla Singer.
