When asked Tuesday about Pitt and Jolie’s divorce and Aniston, Entertainment Tonight reports Cox told reporters, “I feel like we’re exacerbating it by even talking about it,” adding, “It’s not about her.”

Cox’s remarks came after Aniston’s husband, Justin Theroux, told Business Insider that it was “nonsense” that his wife’s name was being mentioned.
