Brad Pitt did not offer Justin Theroux a starring role in a new film he’s producing, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this story. We’re told it’s completely “false.”

According to the National Enquirer, Pitt has infuriated his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston by contacting Theroux about the movie role. A so-called insider tells the tabloid that Pitt is “dangling big money” and “a possible Oscar nomination” as incentives for Theroux to take the part. The alleged source further claims Theroux is “thrilled” about the offer because he “really wants to work with Brad.”

Aniston became “furious” her husband when he brought it up to her, says the tabloid. The magazine’s dubious source says in absurd language that she “hit the roof,” and is “horrified at the thought of New Hubby cozily creeping back in with Old Lover.”

The whole report, not surprisingly, is untrue. A rep for Theroux exclusively tells Gossip Cop the National Enquirer story is “false.” Of course, the tabloid has a long history of getting it wrong when it comes to Theroux and Pitt. Last year, Gossip Cop debunked an equally ridiculous tale by the magazine that claimed Pitt sent Theroux and Aniston a vase as a wedding gift.
