Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt apparently have a sense of humor about their contentious split.

Or so says Carrie Fisher, who stars in an autobiographical Broadway show, "Wishful Drinking," that features her father Eddie Fisher's controversial love life -- but could just as easily be about the Pitt-Aniston-Angelina Jolie love triangle.

Fisher, who played Princess Leia in the Stars Wars movies, tells New York's Daily News she approached Pitt to make sure he was cool with the comparison.

"This is exactly what your situation is like!" Fisher says she told the actor, 44.  (Her father, Eddie, abandoned Carrie's mother, girl-next-door Debbie Reynolds, for the sultry Elizabeth Taylor.)

Pitt, she says, had no problems with it.

Aniston didn't mind either.

"She's a very nice girl. I didn't speak to her, but I heard that she liked it," Fisher said. "At least, I hope she liked it."

Fisher says she didn't intend to offend anyone in the 90-minute play, which opens Oct. 25 in New York City.

"Anything that had to do with anyone else, I made sure that I went to them and cleared it with them," she said.
