It was supposed to be Jennifer Aniston’s chance to show the world, and ex-husband Brad Pitt, that she was totally loved up with new man, Charlie’s Angels 2 star, Justin Theroux, but the actress was nowhere to be seen at the 84th Academy Awards in Los Angeles this evening where she was supposed to be presenting.

Just days after her first public kiss with her man as she was awarded her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday, Jen looked ready to take her lovefest to the Oscars red carpet, where she would have been able to showcase her romance to millions of viewers across the world - showing once and for all that she could take on Brad and Ange on the red carpet. 

Insiders are already whispering that Jen couldn’t face bumping into her ex, preferring instead to stay at home with her new man. One thing’s for sure we’re going to have to wait a little bit longer for the ultimate red carpet couples showdown, we’re desperate to see!
