After the shocking news of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s split last month, Jennifer Aniston was dragged into the media frenzy surrounding her ex yet again.

More than 10 years on from her own split with Brad, the Friends star found herself the subject of countless new internet memes as users imagined her reaction to hearing the divorce news.

But according to Jennifer’s long-time pal Chelsea Handler, the Brangelina split couldn’t be further from her mind.

“It’s so stupid and pathetic. As if Jen cares – she doesn’t care. It’s ridiculous that people still drag her into this,” Chelsea scoffed in an interview with Grazia.

“Hello, as if she is sitting around even caring about this.”

While Jennifer herself may have stayed silent on the subject, outspoken Chelsea has no problem saying what she really thinks about the divorce of one of Hollywood’s former power couples.

At the time the news broke, the comedienne – who has a talk show on Netflix – called Angelina a “f—ing lunatic” and wondered out loud why Brad “would need to self-medicate”.

Even Justin Theroux, Jennifer’s husband, weighed in on the split while promoting his new flick The Girl on the Train.

“As a child of divorce, all I can say is that’s terrible news for those children, and that’s all you can really say. It’s boring to sort of comment on anything else. People are having a bad time. That’s horrible.”

One subject the actor wasn’t shy about, however, was the secret to his happy marriage with Jennifer.

Justin and Jennifer celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary earlier this year.

The couple tied the knot in a super-secret ceremony last year, and he told Entertainment Tonight that their shared sense of humour played a big part in their relationship.

“We appreciate each other’s sense of humour, we respect one another and we get along,” he gushed of his gorgeous wife.

“I know it sounds simple but it’s true!”
