Angelina Jolie refuses to celebrate Thanksgiving, calling it a "story of murder."

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie is refusing to celebrate Thanksgiving on moral grounds. Jolie's newfound morality has led her to force her family to sit out this Thanksgiving.

"Angelina Jolie hates this holiday and wants no part in rewriting history like so many other Americans," a friend of the actress told Popeater. "To celebrate what the white settlers did to the native Indians, the domination of one culture over another, just isn't her style. She definitely doesn't want to teach her multi-cultural family how to celebrate a story of murder."

Of course, the Jolie-Pitt clan isn't even in the U.S. right now -- they are all in Eastern Europe while Jolie films her directorial debut.

"Angelina gets so grossed out by Thanksgiving that she has made sure her family will not be in America this year on Thursday," said a source.

Does Pitt know about this plan? Doesn't sound like it. "We'll whip up a turkey somewhere," he recently told Extra.

"If Brad wants turkey, he will have to cook it himself," said a family friend. "For Angie, it will be another day when America tries to rewrite history."
