Jennifer Aniston has different Netflix projects currently in the works, including the new show First Ladies and a movie with Adam Sandler titled Murder Mystery, and a new report claims that Angelina Jolie is furious about it. Apparently, Jolie believes that she is the actress who should get all of the Netflix fame, and she is “pissed as hell” that Aniston is stealing it.
“It’s really irked Angelina, who thought she was the Netflix darling after First They Killed My Father, but now she’s playing second fiddle to Jen, and she’s pissed as hell over it,” said an insider.
According to Radar Online, Aniston will be playing the lead role of the first female President in First Ladies, which co-stars comedian Tig Notaro and also starring alongside Sandler in Murder Mystery.

This past year hasn’t been an easy one for Jolie. She has been in the middle of a heated custody battle with Brad Pitt, while Aniston’s career has been heating up. An industry insider says that her new Netflix role is proof that she has more clout in Hollywood than Jolie. And, Jolie’s “misery movies” have very limited appeal.
The insider also said that Jennifer Aniston’s bosses believe she is the female answer to Sandler, and they paid her very well to star in Murder Mystery, plus a “bunch of other movies.”
As for Jolie and Pitt’s custody battle and divorce, the Oscar winner has decided to part ways with her attorney Laura Wasser after weeks of rumors that Jolie was planning on changing counsel. Samantha Bley DeJean will now be representing the 43-year-old actress because of her expertise in protecting the best interests of children.
Over the past few weeks, Jolie has been relying on that expertise, and she decided to make Bley DeJean lead counsel. Now, the case has completely transitioned to her.
Nearly two years after filing for divorce, Jolie and Pitt have still not reached a custody agreement for their six children: Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox. Right now, the court-ordered arrangement issued earlier this summer is still in place.
As I’ve always said, Angelina Jolie is a master manipulator when it comes to PR but now these games are proving to be her undoing. All Brad Pitt has ever wanted was kids – just settle the divorce, joint custody, and move on. https://t.co/RFfBacvbR4

Earlier this month, Jolie asked the court for retroactive child support after claiming Pitt had not honored their informal agreement. However, Pitt’s lawyers responded by filing their own brief saying that Pitt has given Jolie over $9 million since their split, with $1.3 million going towards taking care of the kids and an $8 million loan so Jolie could buy a home.
Brad Pitt’s lawyer, Lance Spiegel, says that Angelina Jolie’s child support request is “unnecessary” and leaves out important information in an attempt to manipulate media coverage.
