Angelina Jolie was allegedly not happy with Jennifer Aniston’s success on Netflix because she wanted to be the “Netflix darling.”
Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston are often pitted against each other due to their connection with Brad Pitt. One tabloid claims that one is not happy with the other’s success on Netflix.
However, one should take the report with a grain of salt because there is no piece of evidence to support the claim.
Angelina Jolie not happy with Jennifer Aniston’s Netflix success
In August 2018, an insider claimed that Angelina Jolie wasn’t happy with Jennifer Aniston’s success on Netflix. She felt that the Murder Mystery star stole her Netflix fame.
At the time, reports were suggesting that Aniston was playing the first female president in its new show entitled First Ladies.
“It’s really irked Angelina, who thought she was the Netflix darling after ‘First They Killed My Father,’ but now she’s playing second fiddle to Jen and she’s pissed as hell over it,” one source told Radar Online.
The insider also compared Jolie and Aniston’s roles on Netflix. Brad Pitt’s first wife reportedly “shows that she has more clout in Hollywood when it comes to this stuff.”
On the other hand, Jolie’s “misery movies are of more limited appeal to the studio chefs,” the source added.
At the time, Aniston was photographed with Adam Sandler for another Netflix show. The two were in Italy during the summer to shoot their movie.
“The view among her bosses is that Jen’s the female answer to Adam Sandler, and they’re prepared to pay her handsomely to make this and a bunch of other movies,” the insider added.

It also won one out of the seven People’s Choice Award for Favorite Comedic Movie.
Jolie and Aniston’s only encounter
According to Jennifer Aniston, she met Angelina Jolie once. She pulled over and introduced herself to the Maleficent star.
At the time, Aniston and Brad Pitt were married. Meanwhile, he was about to shoot Mr. & Mrs. Smith with Jolie.
Aniston told Jolie her husband was excited to work with her. She also wished that they would have a good time together.
Apparently, Jolie and Pitt had a great time together. They couldn’t stop giggling while filming.
Besides, it did not take long for Pitt and Aniston to announce their split. Shortly after that, Pitt and Jolie started dating.
Thus, Aniston was very furious when she learned about Jolie and Pitt’s beach photos with Maddox in Kenya.
