Ellen DeGeneres may be living happily ever after with Portia DeRossi now, but apparently, she shares an ex with a seriously big celebrity and friend. On Friday's episode of The Ellen Show, Ellen revealed she dated Brad Pitt's ex ... and now, we have only one question:


  • While talking about a pool party they'd both attended a long time ago, Ellen revealed she dated one of Brad's old girlfriends.

    Apparently, there was a time when they were all gathered at Melissa Ethridge's house by the pool (no big deal), and Brad was "flattered" when Ellen was hitting on his girlfriend at the time, who remained nameless.

    But this wasn't the only time something like this happened.

    Ellen said that she'd actually dated a different one of Brad's exes, adding, "We'll talk about that later," according to E! News.

  • Now, our biggest question is who the woman Brad and Ellen have in common might be.

    It's hard to pinpoint who it might have been, being that Ellen and Brad go way back, and they didn't specify a time period. Besides, Ellen's been with Portia for almost 15 years. Before that, she was with Anne Heche.

    This is a tough mystery to crack. 

    But we won't deny that they both do have pretty good taste in women. Brad's ex wives include Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie -- and we know Portia is gorgeous. The lady in question is likely stunning, too.

  • On top of that reveal during the episode, Brad's appearance was a surprise. He was just casually sitting in the audience!

    We can't even imagine how the people around him held it together, but the reveal was definitely worth it. It's easy to see how close Ellen and Brad are when they interact on screen. We love the fact that they were able to date the same person and it's just water under the bridge.

    Then again, it did seem like Brad was finding out about having ex-girlfriends in common for the first time on the episode, because he did tell Ellen he wanted to talk about it after the show.

  • Whoever it was, we're glad it didn't work out, because Ellen and Portia are too cute.

    Who doesn't love this celebrity couple? Just look at them!

    Maybe one day, Ellen or Brad will reveal who they were talking about ... but until then, we can only speculate. Sigh.
