Angelina Jolie avoided a star studded party at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday (13MAY04) - to stop fellow actress Jennifer Aniston from feeling uncomfortable.

Aniston was reportedly upset following speculation her husband Brad Pitt had grown close to Jolie whilst filming new movie Mr And Mrs Smith earlier this year (04).

Although the reports were vehemently denied by both parties, Jolie decided to stay in her hotel room with son MADDOX instead of joining Pitt and Aniston and stars including Cameron Diaz, Justin Timberlake, Will Smith and Uma Thurman at the bash at the exclusive HOTEL DU CAP.

A source tells Britain's DAILY MIRROR newspaper, "She didn't want to make anyone feel uncomfortable and thought it best to stay in her suite - and eliminate any chance of bumping into Jennifer."
