Courteney Cox wants us to leave Jennifer Aniston out of Brangelina's drama

For Cailyn Cox, writing isn't just a hobby, it's her life. Passionate about Hollywood, she makes it her mission to find the most entertaining celebrity gossip for SheKnows readers. And when she's not enthralled in the celeb world, she's ...

Courteney Cox is schooling everyone who thinks Jennifer Aniston has anything to do with Brad Pitt's divorce

It's pretty ridiculous that after more than a decade of being divorced from Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston is being brought up in reports about Pitt and Angelina Jolie's split.

Yes, the circumstances surrounding Pitt's split from Aniston raised eyebrows — their five-year marriage ended in 2005, the same year that Pitt and Jolie filmed Mr. & Mrs. Smith — and a lot of people feel as though she's now rejoicing and saying, "I told you so" (at least, that's the way the countless memes that emerged on Twitter the day after Jolie announced her decision to file for divorce have made it seem).

But Aniston certainly does not need to be brought into her ex-husband's marital problems. She's moved on with her life, and she's happily married to Justin Theroux, so there's no reason for her to be even remotely interested in any of Pitt's life affairs — and this is something her good friend and former co-star Courteney Cox wants to remind everyone about.

"It's not about [Jennifer]," Cox told Entertainment Tonight at Revlon's Annual Philanthropic Luncheon in Los Angeles on Tuesday. "I feel like we're exacerbating it by even talking about it." She is, of course, right. And with that single comment, Cox has reminded us all why it's so wrong to bring Aniston into Brangelina's divorce drama.

However, Cox is not the only one who has been angered by Aniston being dragged into the drama, and while Aniston hasn't spoken about it herself, her husband has — there were even reports that Aniston and Theroux were divorcing. I mean, c'mon people!

Speaking to Business Insider, Theroux slammed the reports as nonsense, noting that there were much more important things to be discussing than Brangelina's divorce — especially when it involves his wife.

So, can we all just leave Jennifer Aniston out of Brangelina's drama once and for all now? We think she deserves that.
