Jennifer Aniston: Still in Tears Over Brad Pitt?

Now this is just a crying shame.

The New York Post reports that perpetually single Jennifer Aniston was late to the set of her recent movie The Bounty for one scene—because she was bawling her eyes out over her ex-husband, Brad Pitt.

According to a source, an assistant was sent to fetch Aniston from her trailer when she didn’t show up to film the scene a few weeks ago—and the assistant found the former Friends-ter in tears.

Aniston allegedly told the assistant,

“I need a moment. This scene reminds me of Brad and me.”

Jen managed to appear happy when she finally composed herself and emerged from her trailer, but according to the source her smile is barely concealing the anguish within:

“While she enjoyed flirting with [co-star] Gerard [Butler] on set and put a brave face on every day, privately she is still very fragile.”

Aniston’s publicist, Stephen Huvane, blasts the Post’s story as “ridiculous . . . it never happened.”
