Did Jennifer Aniston really have Heidi Montag banned from the New York premiere of "Just Go With It"? According to Montag, yes… and no.
The reality star, who has a cameo in the comedy, initially complained to Us Weekly that Aniston refused to let her walk the red carpet at the film's February 8 premiere.
"I'm so upset," she said in the magazine's current issue. "I was so excited! This is the first movie I've ever been in and I can't walk the red carpet because Jennifer Aniston decided I was 'too polarizing.'"
Montag added that she was a huge fan of Aniston and was shocked she would stand in the way of her acting ambitions.
"She should know how hard it is to make a career for yourself," Montag said, "and to have someone like Jennifer Aniston go out of her way to make things hard for me is really disheartening."
Aniston's rep denied the claim to Us, saying, "This is absolutely false. Jennifer has nothing to do with who was or was not invited." And now, Montag has changed her story.
"I read that Jennifer had banned me from the premiere for being too polarizing, but I know now that it wasn't true," she told Us yesterday. "It never really made sense to me because Jennifer is such a sweetheart and she even commented before on a red carpet about how interesting and fun it was to have me in the movie."
Montag claims she was invited to the premiere but didn't go because she had to be in Los Angeles with her dogs.
"I was honored to be a part of such a great movie," she said, "and I apologize to Jennifer and Sony for this big misunderstanding."
