Jennifer Aniston bailed on the Golden Globes red carpet as she prepared to come face-to-face with Angelina Jolie for the first time in three years.

Twitter users seized upon a screengrab that suggested Angelina Jolie might have been fazed at sharing a ballroom with Jennifer Aniston at Sunday night's Golden Globes.

Television footage taken from behind Aniston and Carol Burnett as they presented an award together shows Jolie studiously avoiding the stage, instead looking down at the table she was seated at.

And the same shot also shows Fifty Shades star Dakota Johnson sneaking a peek at Jolie not looking at Aniston.

Regardless of whatever was really going on, Twitter users found the image very satisfying.
