The Word: Did Jennifer Aniston change her flight to avoid Angelina Jolie?

A sign of affection, or a hint at a baby bump? Whatever Jen (in Valentino) and Justin were doing, they looked hot doing it.

Here’s a service I bet you didn’t know airlines provide: Apparently, if you unwittingly book yourself onto the same flight as the woman who stole your husband, they will alert you to the mixup and help you rebook.

British Airlines will, anyway, if the two women in question are Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie. According to E! News, when the airline noticed how awkward its first class cabin was going to be during the 11-hour flight from LA to London, they called Jennifer’s team and alerted them to the issue. She was quietly rebooked onto a different flight, and neither actress even knew how close they came to being plane buddies. Although I guess probably they do now. Hi, Jen. Hi, Angie.

You know, getting stuck on a flight with your ex’s new wife would make a pretty good Jennifer Aniston movie. Or Angelina Jolie movie, if one of the women was an assassin.

Jennifer Aniston continues not to be pregnant: Any baby bump we’ve been hallucinating is “just a couple of extra LBs,” Jennifer told Australia’s Kyle and Jackie O.

What’s more, she doesn’t really get why we have to play detective. “Why not just wait until we actually get to have the fun of announcing something? Who wants to play the guessing game, whether it be (a) family wedding, this, that, the other thing?” she asked.

I don’t know. It’s just something we have to do.
