Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston Golden Globes “Showdown” NOT Happening
There is not going to be a dramatic and confrontational Angelina Jolie–Jennifer Aniston “face-to-face showdown” at the Golden Globes, despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this cover story from In Touch, the same outlet that keeps printing false pregnancy/miscarriage rumors about Aniston and has spent years getting everything wrong about Jolie’s relationship with Brad Pitt.
According to the magazine, 10 years after Aniston’s marriage to Pitt ended and he began a relationship with Jolie, the two women are set for a “shocking face-off” at January’s Golden Globes. Jolie is expected to gain some awards season consideration for her directorial work on Unbroken, while Aniston has won raves for her acting in Cake. That is apparently enough for In Touch to anticipate a Golden Globes bloodbath.
In Touch quotes a so-called “insider” as saying of Aniston, “She’s been waiting a decade to look Angie straight in the eye and tell her how she really feels. She’s told friends she’s repulsed by her. Angie stole her man. How is a woman supposed to ever get over that?” Giddy at the prospect that Aniston’s supposed “pent-up anger is going to explode,” In Touch quotes the source: “She’s looking forward to proving to Brad and Angie, and everyone else, that she isn’t in any way intimidated by them anymore. She’s been waiting for this showdown for a decade.”
Um, apparently it’s been easier for Aniston to “get over” it than it’s been for In Touch. There have been dozens and dozens and dozens of Hollywood events over the past decade when Aniston could have confronted Jolie if she really wanted to do so. She hasn’t wanted a showdown. Period. The tabloids want a showdown.
Just like the tabloids want Aniston to be pregnant, which is another weird angle to the In Touch story. The magazine says, for the thousandth time, that Aniston is currently expecting a baby, and wants awards season to be when she debuts a baby bump and basks in everyone’s attention. According to the tab’s “insider,” Aniston hopes being pregnant will “win her plenty of sympathy” in the (imaginary) Jolie fight.
This is ludicrous. So now Aniston is counting on a non-existent pregnancy to win her public support in a non-existent feud with Jolie that will come to a head with a face-to-face showdown at an awards show, even though neither star has even been nominated yet? As a source close to the situation exclusively tells Gossip Cop, “This is dumb, even for In Touch. Which is saying something.”
