All eyes were on the lovely Jennifer Aniston and the legendary Carol Burnett during the Golden Globes telecast on Sunday, January 7, 2018 all except for one pair. If a picture is worth a thousand words, Dakota Johnson’s sideways glance toward Angelina Jolie specifically not looking at Aniston on stage, tells us many words. Words like “girl drama”, “home wrecker”, “scandalous” and “guy problems” are just possibilities. Jolie is just about the only person in the crowd with her eyes not glued to Aniston and Burnett’s speech. Johnson’s reaction is completely normal if you are well aware of the drama that took place over ten years ago.
Let us travel back to 2004 when married man Brad Pitt and single mom Angelina Jolie started working together on a 2005 crime thriller called Mr. & Mrs. Smith. The two actors played a married couple and despite’s Pitt’s marriage to Aniston, they became extremely close on set. Fast forward a few months later and Pitt and Aniston announced their split, and they divorced in the spring of 2005. During this time, the rumor mill was wildly swirling with reports that Pitt was leaving Aniston for Jolie.
"Because of the film, we ended up being brought together to do all these crazy things, and I think we found this strange friendship and partnership that kind of just suddenly happened. I think a few months in I realized, 'God, I can't wait to get to work,' “ Jolie said in an interview about her new relationship with the freshly divorced Pitt.
"Whether it was shooting a scene or arguing about a scene or gun practice or dance class or doing stunts — anything we had to do with each other, we just found a lot of joy in it together and a lot of real teamwork. We just became kind of a pair.”
News of Pitt and Jolie’s official relationship status hit Aniston fans hard as Pitt and Aniston were the Hollywood “It” couple at the time and Aniston’s hit show, Friends had recently ended in 2004 so her army of fans were strong. Battle lines of “Team Aniston” versus “Team Jolie” were clearly drawn. Jolie has previously stated that she has only met Aniston once briefly and would meet with her again if Aniston initiated a meeting.
Some things never change and it seems that maybe this Hollywood feud is no exception. Instagram user obviousbutamazing used bright pink arrows to diagram the dysfunction and wrote, "#dakotajohnson looking at #angelinajolie while #jenniferaniston is presenting. #classic #highschool And what's the #devil looking at? How rude, I can't with Angelina! Worst personality period. ? Jen A #hairgoals #goldenglobes." And the rumor mill has gone wild yet again.
