Angelina Jolie snubbed Margot Robbie at the Hollywood Film Awards? That's the claim in one of this week's new tabloids, which is trying to create a nonexistent feud between the two A-list actresses. Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we've exclusively learned the truth.
According to In Touch, Robbie received the cold shoulder when she approached the fellow actress at the awards gala earlier this month. A so-called "source" tells the magazine that the Suicide Squad star attempted to introduce herself to Jolie, who allegedly responded, "I know who you are" and then "turned her back." The outlet's dubious insider further contends Robbie "looked shocked " that her "friendliness wasn't reciprocated by Angelina."
The questionable source goes on to theorize that the supposed snub is related to Robbie's cameo appearance in Brad Pitt's 2015 movie The Big Short. "Rumors swirled about Brad crushing on Margot and that Angelina had tried to stop Brad from casting Margot in the film. It was clear from Angelina's reaction to Margot that she still holds a grudge." However, Gossip Cop already debunked this phony narrative last year after HollywoodLife used it to baselessly accuse Robbie of causing Pitt and Jolie's divorce.
Regardless of this entire article being based on a false premise, Gossip Cop still checked in with organizers of the Hollywood Film Awards and none of whom heard anything about Jolie brushing off the actress. It also seems odd that In Touch was the only media outlet to witness this supposed snub considering that the high-profile gala was attended by many members of the press. All of the reputable publications that covered the event, such as Vanity Fair, observed both Robbie and Jolie behind the scenes and made no mention of any conflict between the two.
It should be noted, In Touch is the same unreliable outlet that Gossip Cop busted last week for wrongly reporting Jolie is secretly getting married to a wealthy British philanthropist. Clearly, the frequently discredited tabloid isn't the best source for accurate news about the actress.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
