Angelina Jolie did NOT have a plot to “ruin” Jennifer Aniston’s Golden Globes evening, despite an absurd new Life & Style report. Gossip Cop can bust the story, which claims Aniston’s “old foe made plans to rain all over her big night.”

According to Life & Style, Aniston’s nomination for her performance in Cake irked Jolie. “She was furious that her movie Unbroken received no nominations, so she hatched a plot to steal the awards show away from Jen,” explains an unhinged source for the magazine. Life & Style says Jolie “called Globes organizers and offered to announce the winner in Jen’s category… it would be the first nationally televised collision of the two adversaries.”

“Angie believed that by wresting control of the situation, everyone would be buzzing about how gracious she is — and if Jen acted nervous, she’d come off looking like a fool,” says the tabloid’s insider. Fortunately for Life & Style, “Jen’s nightmare was averted as organizers chose not to have Angie present the award.” What a nice way for Life & Style to make up a story and then make up an escape route.

This story is ridiculous. Tabloids lust after an Aniston-Jolie “collision” with almost sexual intensity, even though both women moved on from this media-fueled “feud” years ago. Life & Style sister publication In Touch tried to float a similar story about a Golden Globes “showdown” between Aniston and Jolie back in November. It wasn’t true then, and it’s not true now. A source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop the report is “laughable.”
