Jennifer Aniston: Upstaging Angelina Jolie?
and Angelina Jolie
have been enjoying the spoils of their awards show accolades thus far, but come Oscar night, Jennifer Aniston
will be working her magic on the red carpet as well, possibly stealing some of Brangelina’s thunder.
Both Jolie and Pitt are nominated for Academy Awards (Brad for Benjamin Button and Angelina for Changeling), but looking ahead, Jen’s “He’s Just Not That Into You” will be dominating the box office, much the same way her “Marley and Me” reigned supreme during the holiday season.
Miss Aniston has also been asked to present an award, though it’s not confirmed if she’s accepted the invitation. But one thing’s for sure, with John Mayer on her arm, Jen will be the belle of the ball.
A friend of Aniston’s told press, “She was a good girl and pulled back during the Golden Globes, even though she had the hottest movie out.” But that won’t be the case this time around. “The movie [He’s Just Not That Into You] will likely still be near the top of the box office. Jen will own the night. Brad and Angie might be nominated, but Los Angeles is Jen’s town.”
Actually, it was Mayer that convinced Jen to go to the Oscars to begin with. According to Star, he told her, “You’ve got to go. Why do you hide in this town? You have every reason to be there. By presenting at the Oscars, you’ll tell the world: ‘I don’t care about Brad and Angie. I belong here, too.’ Jen is taking back ownership of her life. She’s gotta move on from this Brad and Angie thing. This is the perfect time, and I’ll be there to protect her.” He added, “Trust me, even if Brad and Angie both win Oscars, that won’t be the story of the night.”
