'For the last time - there's no feud' says Aniston

Feud? What feud?

Jennifer Aniston has had her fill of tabloid speculation that she's involved in an ongoing feud with Brad Pitt and his partner Angelina Jolie.

Aniston split from Moneyball star Pitt in January 2005, and officially divorced in October that year.

Brangelina went public with their relationship that same year, after falling for each other on the set of Mr & Mrs Smith in 2004.

The Hollywood trio have been dogged by rumours ever since that they're locked in spiral of acrimony, and that Aniston deeply resents the fact that Pitt coupled up with Jolie.

Aniston hits up the March issue of InStyle magazine and insists that there's no such feud. She's moved on, and is very happy with her new love Justin Theroux.

Asked what the most annoying misconception is about her, she replied, "Which one? There are so many."

She continued: "I would say 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 - [people make money off] a story that has nothing to do with reality."

There's certainly been a few rubberknecking episodes along the way that have fuelled the gossip.

Aniston famously quipped that she thought Pitt was missing a "sensitivity chip" when tabloid snaps of Pitt, Jolie and her three-year-old son, Maddox, on a beach in Africa were published a month after she filed for divorce.

Pitt also opened up to Parade magazine in a revealing interview last September and spoke with surprising candor about his failed marriage.

He implied that the union wasn't the love story it appeared to be.

"It became very clear to me that I was intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasn't living an interesting life myself," he said of the period before he met Jolie.

"I think that my marriage had something to do with it, trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn't."

He later issued a statement denying he was trashing his marriage.

"It grieves me that this was interpreted this way. Jen is an incredibly giving, loving, and hilarious woman who remains my friend. It is an important relationship I value greatly," he explained.

"The point I was trying to make is not that Jen was dull, but that I was becoming dull to myself - and that, I am responsible for."

He further clarified to People: "That was never my intention for it to be spun that way," he said. "People read things into it that just weren't there."

Aniston, who met Theroux on the set of their new flick, Wanderlust, also tells InStyle that she's in a "joyful and peaceful" place thanks to their relationship.

"Having experienced everything you don't want in a partner over time, it starts to narrow down to what you actually do want," she says. "As I get older I realise what qualities are important in love and what suits me. And what I won't settle for."

On her favourite thing about Theroux's style: "First of all, he has great style - it's very specific, and it has been his style forever. 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!"

On feeling old: "You know what makes me feel old? When I see girls who are twentysomething, or the new crop of actresses, and think, 'Aren't we kind of the same age?' You lose perspective," she says. "I don't feel my age [she's 43 on February 11]. I feel young every day."

Meanwhile, her ex Pitt has revealed that Jolie hasn't completely exorcised her Hollywood bad girl ways.

"She's still a bad girl - delightfully so," he told CBS This Morning host Charlie Rose on Monday.

Asked for further elaboration, he added cheekily, "It's not for public consumption."

Check out his interview below:

Last November, in a conversation with CBS' 60 Minutes, Jolie confessed that she still has a naughty streak, but it's reserved for Pitt's eyes only.

"I'm still a bad girl," she said. "That part of me is just in its place now.

"It belongs to Brad and to our adventures."

Say no more.
