In the upcoming issue of InStyle, Jennifer Aniston talks candidly about the rumored feud between herself and Angelina Jolie, which has dominated the tabloids for almost a decade.
Speculation of a Jen and Angie feud arose when Jen's ex-husband, Brad Pitt, publicly revealed his relationship with Angelina shortly after his divorce, leading many to believe an affair led to the end of their marriage. Jen referred to the gossip as "a story that has nothing to do with reality."
When asked what most people get wrong about her persona life, Aniston added: "The triangle with my ex-husband -- and that there's a feud there. It's constant. It's a story headline that won't go away, but it's a money thing."
Jen seems to have found a silver lining to the dark cloud of her failed marriage, using the experience as a learning tool.
"Having experienced everything you don't want in a partner over time, it starts to narrow down to what you actually do want," said Jen. "As I get older I realize what qualities are important in love and what suits me. And what I won't settle for."
So far, Jen's new man -- Justin Theroux -- appears to be meeting her standards.
"First of all, he has great style -- it's very specific, and it has been his style forever," Jen gushed. "Has it influenced mine? No, but I know people say it has. 'Oh, look, you're dressing alike.' And I think, 'No I'm not. I've had this jacket for three years!'"
