It was supposed to be one of those nights. On the West Coast, Angelina Jolie was supposed to be lighting up Hollywood at the Unbroken premiere, with Brad Pitt’s hand on her ass, surrounded by their children – the ultimate celebrity family portrait – while on the East Coast, Jennifer Aniston was at yet another Cake screening in New York, encouraged by three recent Best Actress nominations, and continue to push for the big one: Oscar.

Over the last decade, Brange and Aniston triangle timing has always been uncannily convenient.
