Actress Jennifer Aniston is angry with ex-husband Brad Pitt for casting his girlfriend Angelina Jolie in the role of late journalist Daniel Pearl's widow Mariane as she hoped she would get the part and win an Oscar for it.

According to, the movie is titled A Mighty Heart and revolves around Mariane's search for her husband who was a Wall Street Journal reporter. Pearl was abducted and killed by terrorists in Pakistan in 2002.

Aniston was supposedly in negotiations for the role when she helped Pitt get the movie rights to Mariane's book.

A source said: "She's horrified that Brad has handed the role meant for her to Angelina. It was Jen who persuaded Daniel Pearl's wife to sell the movie rights to their production company Plan B."

"It is heartless, but the bottom lineis that Brad hasgot ownership of the company in their divorce settlement, so he can do what he likes."
