Report: Aniston’s Tearful Breakdown Before Oscars

InTouch magazine has its own take on the globally-televised Oscar meeting between Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

This one has Aniston coming apart and pulling it together just before the big showdown.

“She had been crying in the car on her way to the Oscars,” the mag says, citing a source. “She was very nervous and had to redo her makeup in the garage.”

And while dreading the encounter, the mag maintains she knew precisely what she was getting into.

“[Jen knew] the whole world would be watching her reaction…she hasn’t seen Brad with Angelina, ever,” the source says.

The world saw at last during Sunday’s Academy Awards telecast, where Aniston presented two animation prizes with comedian Jack Black.

Things weren’t necessarily rosy for Brangelina, either. InTouch goes on to say, “Angelina likes to hold hands at these things. But Brad didn’t want to, out of respect for Jen. Angelina was annoyed, and it was hard to hide her feelings.”
