Heidi Montag reportedly says she was banned from a recent premiere of Jennifer Aniston's new movie "Just Go With It," an Adam Sandler romantic comedy that features both celebrities and is set for release on Friday, February 11.
Aniston's spokesperson told OnTheRedCarpet.com that the "Friends" actress had nothing to do with the issue.
"Just Go With It" marks Montag's big screen debut. The 24-year-old is known for her role on the MTV reality show "The Hills." She and husband Spencer Pratt, the 27-year-old villain of the series, have often been said to have staged publicity stunts.
Montag told Us Weekly magazine that she was prohibited from walking the red carpet at the "Just Go With It" premiere in New York, saying: "Jennifer Aniston decided I was 'too polarizing.'"
"I've been such a huge Jennifer Aniston fan my entire life and it's just really upsetting that she would do this to me," Montag added. "She should know how hard it is to make a career for yourself and to have someone like Jennifer Aniston go out of her way to make things hard for me is really disheartening."
"Of course its not true," Aniston's spokesperson told OnTheRedCarpet.com regarding Montag's reported remarks. "We have nothing to do with who is invited but aside from that - Sony did invite Heidi and didn't get a response from her reps."
A Sony spokesperson had no immediate comment. Aniston's spokesperson said Montag appears in the film "for about 20 seconds."
In "Just Go With It," Sandler, 44, plays a plastic surgeon who tells women he is married to avoid commitment. Some of them seem to like that, but when a woman he actually likes finds his fake wedding ring, he says that his marriage is not working out. Aniston, who turns 42 on Friday, the day of the movie's release, plays his office manager who agrees to pose as his soon-to-be ex-wife.
The movie marks the big-screen debut of Brooklyn Decker, a 23-year-old Sports Illustrated swimsuit model. It also stars Oscar-wnning actress Nicole Kidman, 43.
After "The Hills" ended in mid-2010, Montag and Pratt continued to make headlines with news about their relationship. In July, Montag filed for divorce. The two reconciled in late September following a trip to Costa Rica. They renewed their wedding vows in November.
Also that month, Life & Style magazine reported that Pratt and Montag were bankrupt, adding that they owe about $2 million in taxes. The two have not commented publicly.
