When Brad Pitt left Jennifer Aniston and took up with Angelina Jolie six years ago, it fueled Hollywood’s bitterest celebrity rivalry: Rachel Green vs Lara Croft; scorned girl-next-door(ish) wife vs edgy, glamorous usurper. For the most part, it’s been a cold war. Publicly, at least, the antagonists have ignored each other except for some occasional trash talk in interviews. But no more. OK! has the scoop on Angie and Jen’s race to the altar in this week’s new issue, on sale everywhere Thursday!
With Jen having found true love at last with Justin Theroux — and, friends say, planning to wed by year’s end — Angelina is set on marrying Brad first. Despite publicly insisting that she has no plans to wed, sources close to the Oscar-winner tell OK! she has already picked out a dress!
What’s more, Angie is not only fast-and-furiously racing Jen to the altar, she is determined to overshadow the romantic-comedy queen by throwing the more dazzling nuptials.
“It’s not a subject Angelina likes to talk about, but the truth is she and Jen still hate each other,” a source tells OK!. “They just can’t seem to let go of their grudges. They’ve taken a lot of
jabs at one another over the years, but Angelina seems to be the one really obsessed with proving her dominance.
“Obviously she loves Brad deeply and wants to cement their bond and keep her family together,” the source adds. “But the consensus among their friends is that there’s more going on than just that. A lot of people around her suspect that this wedding has a lot to do with her need to be on top.”
