Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston to come face-to-face at pre-Oscars party

Jennifer Aniston and Angelina JolieAngelina Jolie and Brad Pitt will come face-to-face with Jennifer Aniston at an Oscars party called "A night for Unity" tonight - and is one of the most anticipated Hollywood moments of 2008.

Since splitting three years ago, Brad and Jen have been at pains to keep apart, with Friends star Aniston particularly wary of bumping into Angelina. But tonight, the trio are listed as hosts for a pre-Oscar party called 'The Night Before'.

The invitation for the poolside party reads: "A night for Unity, Taking Care of Our Own."

Insiders believe tonight's meeting could lead to a divide in guests almost like at a school disco. On one side will be Aniston's friends like Ben Stiller and Tobey Maguire and his wife Jennifer Meyer. On the other will be Brad and Angie's pals like George Clooney, Don Cheadle, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Matt Damon.

But some insiders are concerned that the glitzy gala will get messy, according to U.S. reports. "Brad is prepared for a knockdown, drag-out fight," a source told Star magazine in the U.S earlier this month. "But he's hoping for the best."

According to Star, Jen was shocked when she heard her ex and his new love were to join her as co-hosts - but refused to back down as she has been involved in the annual gala for several years. "Jennifer is furious - but she is also scared stiff because she's scared of Angelina" a source told Star. "She vowed to never, ever meet Angelina face-to-face. Now she's being forced to.

"If she backed out, she'd look like a chicken.

"She's trapped."

But Jolie is said to be completely calm about the whole thing - and is even looking forward to it.

A source said: "It's something Angelina has been longing for.

"She genuinely wants to reach out to Jennifer and build some kind of a bridge."

"Jennifer is over him, she knows she is Angelina's Achilles heel and she feels confident and in a position of power again.

"There's no spite left but Jennifer will try and score fashion and beauty points off her her rival to show Brad what he left behind."
