Their split and his relationship with his Mr. & Mrs. Smith costar Angelina Jolie which notoriously overlapped were highly publicized in 2005. The exes have since moved on — with Pitt raising six children with Jolie and marrying her in 2014, and Aniston getting engaged to actor Justin Theroux — but the breakup remains a watershed moment in celebrity history.
"I don't find it painful," Aniston, 45, said on CBS Sunday Morning of the split. "I think it's a narrative that follows you because it's an interesting headline. It's more of a media-driven topic."
When asked whether she still keeps in touch with Pitt, 51, her reply is: "We've exchanged good wishes an all that sort of stuff to each other, but it's not a constant thing."
As for her current relationship, the Cake star prefers to keep that private.
"We know what our truth is, and [the rumors are] all just static," she said of her three-year romance with Theroux, 43.
For now, the Golden Globe-nominated actress is gearing up for awards season where her role in the independent drama Cake is already getting plenty of buzz.
"I really was just ready to disappear and really go into the depths of a character," she said.
