What do you get when two talented actresses who the media loves to pit against one another both attend the 2015 Critics' Choice Awards? You get all kinds of media craziness and gasps that Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie are in the same room, even though that Jen/Angie/Brad Pitt story broke nearly 10 years ago. Well, Aniston appears to be over the media constantly saying Jolie is her rival, plus she seems to think that alleged rivalry is "slowly coming to an end," at least that's what she told Entertainment Tonight on Friday. 

She said,

I think that's slowly coming to an end. I really do. I mean, that movie [Unbroken] is so beautiful and wonderful and she did such a gorgeous job. I think that it's time people stop with that petty B.S. and just start celebrating great work and stop with the petty kind of silliness.

She appears to be over reports that she hates Jolie and that the two are huge rivals. Aniston is ready to move on and is, clearly, taking the high road by having only nice things to say about Jolie. Aniston also added,

It’s just tiresome and old. It's like an old leather shoe. Let's buy a new pair of shiny shoes.

As much as Aniston believes the media is finally calming down about their reported rivalry, I have to disagree. Thursday night's Critics' Choice Awards proved just that. If you enter "Jennifer Aniston" and "Angelina Jolie" into Google you will see the many headlines talking about them being in the "same room," their "red carpet run-in," and their "showdown." 

And only a couple weeks before that, fans were quick to point out and headlines were made when Aniston received a Golden Globe nomination and Jolie did not, as if the nomination and lack thereof was somehow linked.

I'm not saying I didn't wonder about the two both being at the same award show and if it would be uncomfortable, but if the Cake actress is saying we all need to move on and put it in the past, then that's what we should be doing. Aren't there more important things to concern ourselves with? You know, like why both Aniston and Jolie got snubbed in the Oscar nominations
