The interview then turned to Dax Shepard who also holds Pitt as an object of affection.
During a surprise visit to "The Ellen DeGeneres Show", the actor detailed how the longtime friends first met at Melissa Etheridge's pool party where DeGeneres was "hitting on" Pitt's then girlfriend.
The amused TV host laughed and added "Actually... since then I've dated another one of your girlfriends."
She didn't reveal the identity of the former paramour, playing coy. "We'll talk about that later."
"After the show,' Pitt agreed.
DeGeneres is now married to Portia De Rossi, tying the knot in 2008. And Pitt was previously married to Angelina Jolie. His other famous exes include Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow, among others.
The interview then turned to Dax Shepard who also holds Pitt as an object of affection. Ellen referred to clips from previous shows of Shepard gushing about all things Pitt.
"Let's be clear... you aren't gay,' said DeGeneres.
"I am not... with the exception of him... cause he is an angel... this is someone who has fallen from the stars," Shepard said of Pitt.
Pitt, in turn, said he was honored and feels the same way about Shepard.
