Angelina Jolie on denying Jennifer Aniston meeting
According to Jennifer Aniston, she met Angelina Jolie once before she started filming with Brad Pitt for Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
The Murder Mystery actress said she pulled over and introduced herself to Jolie. She also told her that her husband at the time was excited to be working with her.
“I hope you guys have a really good time,” Aniston added.
However, when Jolie was asked about it, her initial answer was “no.”
“But… so… you asked if I have ever met Jennifer and I said no,” Jolie said.
“I did, but it was not a proper meeting. We’ve, like, passed each other and said hi briefly, shook hands. But not a real sit-down-and-talk kind of meeting.”
Jolie willing to meet Aniston properly
After Angelina Jolie explained her side of the story about her only encounter with Jennifer Aniston, she was asked if she was willing to meet her again in a “proper meeting.”
The Salt star leaves the decision to Aniston but said she’s willing to do it.
“That would be her decision, and I would welcome it,” Jolie added.
Jolie and Aniston rumored feud
There were claims that Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie were feuding over Brad Pitt.
Many fans believed that Aniston and Pitt split because he fell in love with Jolie while filming Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2004.
When Pitt and Aniston announced their split in January 2005, they said it was an amicable decision. However, they remained close and did not even ditch their wedding rings.
Many were hoping that they would get back together. However, the hopes of them getting back together dissolved into thin air when Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s beach photos made the headlines.
Pitt and Jolie were like a happy family in the snaps in Kenya because Maddox was with them. Aniston did not hide her pain when asked for her reaction about the photo.
“The world was shocked, and I was shocked,” Aniston told Vanity Fair.
“I can’t say it was one of the highlights of my year. Who would deal with that and say, ‘Isn’t that sweet! That looks like fun!’? But shit happens. You joke and say, ‘What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,’” she added.
Aniston also called Jolie “uncool” at one point. The Morning Show actress did not like it when the Eternal star said in a past interview that she couldn’t wait to get to work with Pitt.
The Friends alum felt insulted because Jolie was referring to an incident when Pitt was still married to her. Thus, she found Jolie’s statement inappropriate.
Meanwhile, Jolie reportedly banned Aniston from seeing their kids. Jolie made the move amid rumors that she was rekindling her romance with Pitt.
