The insider stated that the two have been friends for fifteen years and even have a “vague plan” of starring in a big movie together, although, that has yet to come to fruition. Coming back to Pitt helping Portman, the insider stated,

Right now Natalie needs Brad as a friend more than a colleague. And of course that means Ines is along for the ride. She’s so laid back and basically up for anything. Brad is proud of his track record of setting people up, and thanks to his new sober, AA-oriented lifestyle, he has a lot of wildly successful friends who are in the exact same spot Natalie is: starting over and trying to build a new life.

Well, it looks like if Portman wants to go out there and meet people who know what it’s like to start over from scratch, Pitt is her guy!
