Angelina Jolie might have six kids to look after, a wedding to Brad Pitt to organise, but according to a new report, she’s found the time to spark a feud with ‘The Hunger Games’ star Jennifer Lawrence over her latest role in ‘Silver Linings Playbook’.
The mother-of-six is said to hold a grudge against Jen since becoming convinced that the role was stolen from her, according to the National Enquirer.

“Angelina desperately wanted the fe¬male lead in the movie Silver Linings Playbook,” a source said. “But once the director saw Jennifer’s audition, it was no contest.
Jennifer blew her out of the water, and Angie was enraged! It was reported that director David O. Russell thought that 22-year-old Jennifer wasn’t mature enough to be cast as the role of the young widow, Tiffany.
Angelina was then rumoured to be cast.
“We had a lot of major actresses in town interested in the role, from Angelina Jolie to some other big stars,” he is quoted as saying.
“Jennifer, we frankly thought, was too young.”

Upon hearing this, Angelina was sent into a rage, according to the tabloid.
“Angie was beside herself,” said the source. “She screeched, ‘What’s she got that I don’t have?’
“The simple answer is youth. Angie’s getting older and the big parts are going to rising young stars like Jennifer.
“Angie’s seething. It’s a juicy, award-winning part, and she thinks it should have been hers.”
