Brad Pitt & Jennifer Aniston “Just Missed” Running Into Each Other at Movie Theater?

Truth rating: 3

By Michael Lewittes


Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston reportedly “just missed” running into each other on Friday.

According to a report from the paparazzi agency X17Online, Pitt took his four oldest kids with Angelina JolieMaddox, Pax, Zahara, and Shiloh — to the 2 p.m. showing of Hugo at the ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood, and “just before he and the kids exited and headed back to their car in the parking garage, Aniston and [Justin] Theroux entered the theater for their later show!”

The blog then quotes a so-called “source” inside the theater as saying, “Justin and Jennifer skipped the popcorn and went straight in. Like five minutes later, Brad and the kids came out of the theater. They just missed each other!”

A number of outlets picked up the story, including People and Us Weekly.

Gossip Cop, however, is looking into this further since a few things strike us as odd.

(1) If Pitt and his kids, who cause a stir wherever they go, left the theater “five minutes” after Aniston had already arrived, how did they not see each other?

(2) How is it that the photo agency has this “exclusive” story without a picture to prove it?

(3) How could Pitt and Aniston have both been publicly at the same theater — at the same time — and not one single other person witnessed this?

And there are plenty more questions which lead to our skepticism.

Of course, X17Online is the same outlet that wrongly claimed two years ago that Pitt and Jolie had a run-in with Aniston at an event the former “Friends” star did NOT even attend.

We’ll update you as soon as we get more information to verify or debunk this latest “just missed” claim.
