Aniston: Jolie comments ‘uncool'

Jennifer Aniston says Angelina Jolie was out of line when she spilled details about her relationship with Brad Pitt while they were filming “Mr. & Mrs. Smith.”

In an interview in the December issue of Vogue, Aniston talks about the magazine's 2007 profile of Jolie, who talked about growing chummy with Pitt – then married to Aniston – while shooting the action film in 2004.

“There was stuff printed there that was definitely from a time when I was unaware that it was happening,” Aniston says. “I felt those details were a little inappropriate to discuss. That stuff about how she couldn't wait to get to work every day? That was really uncool.”

Pitt and Aniston, who were married in July 2000, announced their separation in January 2005. In the months that followed, Pitt was seen in public with Jolie. Pitt and Aniston divorced in October.

Aniston tells Vogue that she and Pitt are on good terms.

“We have exchanged a few very kind hellos and wishing you wells and sending you love and congratulations on your babies,” she says. “I have nothing but absolute admiration for him, and … I'm proud of him! I think he's really done some amazing things!” Associated Press
