Ange’s cruel attack on Amal
The star’s seeing green as the entire world falls for Mrs Clooney!
Angelina Jolie has openly admitted she’s not exactly a girl’s girl, and rarely makes time to facilitate female friendships. “I don’t really have girlfriends... I stay at home a lot. I’m just not very social. I don’t do a lot with them, and I’m very homebound,” she says. “I don’t have a lot of friends I talk to.” And one star she’s sworn she’ll never be on speaking terms with is Amal Clooney! Yep, NW has learnt that Angelina can’t stand George’s wife and is livid that Amal’s usurped her as Hollywood’s favourite humanitarian and doer of all things good. But really getting Ange’s goat? Amal being front and centre at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding – while Ange was snubbed! In fact, the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex invited many celebs to their May 19 nuptials, including Amal and George, but Ange wasn’t among them, even though she’s met Queen Elizabeth and Camilla Parker Bowles, and considers herself a friend of the royal family. Worse still, she’s currently based in London for the next few months while she shoots Maleficent 2.
“It’s one thing for Ange to not have been invited, but seeing George and Amal with the best seats in the house can only have made her blood boil,” says our source.
“Ange is furious she didn’t get an invite, especially because half of Hollywood was there and she’s in the UK right now. She was convinced
she’d be on the guest list and it’s a slap in the face that she was left out in the cold.”
Indeed, Queen Elizabeth II gave Ange the royal seal of approval when she was made an honorary dame in 2014. And earlier this year, the actress, 42, featured in The Queen’s Green Planet, a documentary about the reigning monarch’s conservation work.
“The way she sees it, she knows the Queen better than a lot of celebrities and it’s outrageous that she wasn’t one of [the 600 guests invited],” the insider reveals. “Ange is spending a lot more time in the UK these days and going to the big day would have been the perfect way to build up her status there.”
But Ange’s bad blood with Amal apparently goes back years and allegedly became an issue between her then-hubby Brad Pitt and his best mate George.
“Angie couldn’t stand being around Amal,” Life&style mag claimed. “Not because Amal was unkind or rude, but solely because Angie was filled with envy.
“Angelina would even knock Amal’s looks and fashion sense. Amal seemed to ignore it, but George didn’t want to sit by and watch his wife get cut down.”
And time, it seems, is doing little to mend this divide.
“Ange is fed up that Amal has everything she wants and is so well-liked,” continues our insider. “But Amal’s influence is only growing and Ange is going to have to get used to her sticking around!” n
