Actress wants closure on her marriage to Brad Pitt

Jennifer Aniston is said to be frustrated that she didn’t meet Angelina Jolie as expected at a pre-Oscar party last weekend.

The pair were to be introduced at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Saturday, but at the last minute Ange, 32, backed out. Brad Pitt started dating Angelina shortly after his split with Jen.

‘Jennifer said the stress of having to avoid them was more painful than seeing them,’ a source tells Us Weekly.

Friends say Jen, 39, had been hoping for closure and thought the meeting would be the ‘perfect chance’ to finally put her marriage to Brad, 43, behind her.

Instead, Angelina took the opportunity to showcase her new baby bump at the Independent Spirit Awards.
