Courteney Cox has a major beef with Angelina Jolie’s flourishing career. Jennifer Aniston’s bestie is looking to break into the directing scene and is reportedly unhappy about how studios are financing Jolie’s multiple projects. What did Cox have to say about Jolie’s failed projects?
An insider told Radar Online that Cox has been trashing Jolie behind closed doors and doesn’t believe Jolie should receive funding for movies when most of them have been duds. The source claims that Cox bashed Jolie for movies like By the Sea and admitted that it’s been hard finding money for her own projects.
The insider added that Cox’s struggles have spread to her love life. She’s trying hard to make it as a director in Hollywood and has been working overtime on her scripts. With Cox concentrating all her efforts on her career, she has little time for boyfriend Johnny McDaid, who is considering taking a step back from their relationship.
Meanwhile, this isn’t the first time Cox has bashed Jolie. According to People, Cox defended Jennifer Aniston after she was dragged into all the divorce rumors between Jolie and Brad Pitt. In the weeks after Angelina Jolie filed for divorce, Cox came out and assured everyone that Aniston had nothing to do with Pitt’s split and wasn’t vindicated by the breakup news.
Pitt and Aniston tied the knot in 2000 but divorced five years later. At the time of the split, Pitt was working with Jolie on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Pitt and Jolie dated for close to a decade before exchanging vows in 2014. They ended their marriage last September.
Aniston’s current husband, Justin Theroux, also slammed the media for dragging his wife into Jolie’s divorce. While the actor admitted that fans have an appetite for such rumors, he was surprised by how much traction they were getting and thought there were a lot more important things to talk about in the world.
Cox has not commented on the latest rumors surrounding her feud with Jolie. The Tomb Raider star is currently working on a number of different projects and recently promoted the premiere of her movie, First They Killed My Father.
