For Jennifer Aniston, awards season means fielding Brad Pitt questions

How do we know Jennifer Aniston is taking her bid for Awards Season glory seriously? She’s entertaining questions about ex-husband Brad Pitt. Aniston is currently on the campaign trail for her Golden Globe-nominated performance in the indie drama “Cake,” and the rules of Hollywood state that you’ve got to play ball if you want a serious shot at some trophies. So Aniston sat down with “CBS Sunday Morning,” where reporter Lee Cowan used the age-old trick of asking about how annoying it is when people ask about something as a ploy to ask about that thing without looking like you’re actually asking about it. Sneaky, that one.

“The fact that it still follows you around — I mean, I’m divorced. It’s got to be painful. I mean, I don’t like when people bring it up. But people still do, right?” Cowan asked. And by people, he means himself, who just brought it up. But Aniston is a pro: “I don’t find it painful, though. I think it’s a narrative that follows you because it’s an interesting headline. It’s more of a media-driven topic,” Aniston responded. And speaking of media-driven, Cowan — who clearly can’t take a hint — followed that up with, “You guys still talk? You friends?” And kudos to Aniston for not rolling her eyes or just straight up punching him before replying. We’ll see if the gambit pays off.
