Angelina Jolie and Catherine Zeta-Jones, Hollywood’s two leading ladies, have locked horns to play Elizabeth Taylor in a new biopic of her life.
Taylor caused a scandal in 1958 when she fell in love with singer Eddie Fisher, who was married to actress Debbie Reynolds and left her to become Taylor’s fourth husband.
Jolie, 35, is hoping that her notoriety will give her the edge. Like Taylor, she famously enticed Brad Pitt away from his wife, Jennifer Aniston, Daily Mail online reported.
Meanwhile Zeta-Jones, 40, has been obsessed by Taylor even longer than Jolie. She met the Hollywood veteran as a youngster in London.
The rivalry between Zeta-Jones and Jolie goes back some years. Zeta-Jones became close to Pitt and his then wife Jennifer Aniston, when she appeared alongside him in Ocean’s 12. But the actress was shocked when Pitt walked out on Aniston after an affair with Jolie.
