Jennifer Aniston wasn't surprised when she heard the news that Beverly Hills beauty salon owner Maria Gabriella Perez was charged with fraud for ripping off credit card information from her A-list clients.

Aniston, 41, said Thursday on ABC's Good Morning America that she stopped working with Perez, 51, about five years ago.

"We had a situation that was not cool so I just stopped going to her," Aniston said. "I knew something like this would eventually happen because there's no way you can get away with that. It's terrible."

In addition to Aniston, Perez's celeb clients include Halle Berry, Melanie Griffith and Anne Hathaway. According to a police affidavit, Perez stole $214,000 from actress Liv Tyler alone over a five-month period last year.

Aniston said her damage "wasn't to the extent of these other girls."

If convicted on two counts of fraud, Perez (due in federal court Thursday) could spend up to 25 years behind bars.
