Jennifer Aniston is NOT wearing glasses because she wants to win an Oscar and show up Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, despite a completely ridiculous tabloid rumor. Gossip Cop can bust the story, which appears in the pages of OK!, a magazine that has repeatedly lied about Aniston being pregnant, married or broken up.

This time, OK! says Aniston is gunning for an Academy Award nomination for her performance in Cake, and is deliberately playing the part of “serious actress” while promoting the movie. “She’s truly on the campaign trail now, which is why she’s been buttoning up, choosing demure outfits and even wearing glasses.”

Below is a picture of Jennifer Aniston wearing glasses at a 2012 event honoring Ben Stiller. Was she trying to earn an Oscar nomination then? How about when she repeatedly wore glasses at red carpet events spanning two decades? Is it possible Aniston just, um… wears glasses sometimes?

Aniston is going to get an Oscar nomination if enough members of the Academy support her critically acclaimed turn in Cake. It’s not going to be due to what OK! naively calls her “Oscar makeover.” She’s been walking red carpets in both stunning gowns and “demure outfits” for years.

Meanwhile, OK! also wants to stir Jolie-Pitt-Aniston controversy for the thousandth time. The magazine’s source says Aniston is “hungry” to show Pitt and Jolie that anything they can do, “she can do better.” In other words, tabloids don’t think Aniston merely wants an Oscar nomination as some kind of nice validation of her work. It always has to be tied to a tired, decade-old scandal. A source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop the OK! report is “lame.”
