Jennifer Aniston Says ‘Break Up’ Helped Her Get Over Brad Pitt (VIDEO)
“It was a beautiful human story about a couple breaking up…You know, I was slightly familiar on the topic and the issue. I honestly felt like, what a great way to sort of exorcise some of that.”
After the split, Pitt famously paired up with his Mr. & Mrs. Smith costar Angelina Jolie (good to note that Vince was also in this film).
Even though The Break Up producers were hesitant about bringing Jen on board because of her circumstances, she insisted her personal heartache made the role “easier” to do. “I was like, ‘Why not?’ Turn the page, let’s move on,” she recalled.
In the end, she’s glad she took the role, adding, “I enjoyed it! You’d think otherwise.”
