Jennifer Aniston is rumored to believe that her failed marriage to Brad Pitt is being exploited in the film he made with Angelina Jolie.
By The Sea is about a couple’s troubled marriage and they go on vacation in an effort to save it. Angelina portrays a woman depressed about not having any children following two miscarriages.
KDrama Stars reports that sources claim Jennifer “freaked out” after hearing about the storyline of By the Sea. She thought it was too similar to her marriage to Brad just before they divorced. There was even word that Jennifer wanted to have the movie pulled from theaters. Apparently, even Brad thought the movie’s plot hit a little too close to home regarding his marriage to Jennifer.
Other reports state that Angelina is “rolling her eyes” at Jennifer’s anger and Brad’s anxiety over the film.
As Gossip Cop reports, this whole rumor of Jennifer Aniston being upset about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie filming By the Sea started over a report published by Life & Style magazine. A source told L&S: “Jen feels like Angelina’s script took dead aim at her. It’s sparked a war between Jen and Brad.”
Jennifer supposedly believes that Angelina’s character is inspired by her. Interestingly, Angelina wrote the film’s screenplay. The tabloid report explained that although Angelina wrote the screenplay, Aniston is “placing the blame squarely on Brad,” because she allegedly believes that her ex-husband “must have betrayed intimate details of their marriage.”
Gossip Cop goes on to reveal that a rep for Aniston insisted that these rumors are “100 percent untrue” and that she hasn’t even seen the film.
Brad and Angelina enjoyed making By the Sea, and it’s the first time they’ve reunited to make a film together since starring in Mr. & Mrs. Smith back in 2005.
There were a few obstacles along the way when Brad and Angelina made the film.
“When we first worked together it was very different because we didn’t really know each other and we were young and, it was really a fun film, so we thought, maybe ‘By the Sea’ was going to be that kind of fun, but realized very quickly that it wasn’t,” Jolie told The Telegraph. “Then we joked that this is what happens after 10 years of marriage.”
