Angelina Jolie ‘Seething’ At Sandra Bullock Oscar Buzz After ‘Losing’ Gravity Role?
Angelina Jolie and Sandra Bullock are in a “film feud,” reports Star, which claims the actresses “became bitter rivals over the lead role” in Gravity. According to an “insider” for the tabloid, “Angie was livid when she lost the part to Sandra because she knew it was a great opportunity.”
“It was known as Angie’s movie, but when the project switched studios, the part was up for grabs — and Sandra snatched it,” alleges the outlet’s supposed source. The Star snitch adds, “Sandra knew Angie was interested, so when she was offered the part she went after it with more gusto than usual. Angie’s loss was Sandra’s gain, and they’re both keenly aware of that fact.” Star adds that Jolie is “furious” and “seething over Sandra’s coup — and her Oscar buzz,” having hoped the project “would give her the critical acclaim her career has been lacking.”
Uh, Jolie is one of the biggest stars in the world and already an Oscar winner. She is not “lacking” for “critical acclaim.” Still, Star’s so-called “insider” goes on to predict that if Bullock wins the Best Actress Oscar at the upcoming Academy Awards, “you know those cameras will be focused right on Angie to get her reaction.” Considering the cameras usually catch the reaction of the winner and other contenders, we highly doubt the reaction of someone who isn’t even nominated will be the focus.
Regardless, this supposed “feud” is as fictional as Gravity itself. Jolie was NEVER attached to the film, having PASSED on the role back in 2010 — after the film changed studios, and before Bullock was ever in discussions for the part. In any case, a source close to the project tells Gossip Cop that claims of a “rivalry” between the two stars because of the movie are completely “absurd.” Of course, Star loves nothing more than pitting two female celebs against each other.
