Brace yourselves for another batch of invites to all kinds of pity parties – Vince Vaughn has apparently broken up with Jennifer Aniston – and it's a real break-up too, not a break-up in a godawful movie they both star in.
According to reports, Vince Vaughn decided to break-up with Jennifer Aniston at the start of last month when he came to England to film a Father Christmas movie. The reasons for the Vince Vaughn/ Jennifer Aniston break-up aren't clear at the moment, but it's either to do with Vince Vaughn getting tired of the media attention, Vince Vaughn getting sick of Jennifer Aniston's controlling ways or the fact that it was an entirely invented relationship that only lasted as long as Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston needed to promote that awful Break-Up film. We haven't worked out which one it was yet.
If we were Oprah Winfrey – well, if we were Oprah Winfrey we'd be snuggling up with our non-lesbian best friend, but that's beside the point. If we were Oprah Winfrey, we'd be glad we decided not to give Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston that $8 million wedding – it's been reported that Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston have split up for good. This Is London reports:
[Vince] called it a day with Aniston in an emotional phone call at the beginning of September and cancelled plans for Jennifer, 37, to visit him in the city, US Weekly magazine reports. "It's not common knowledge, but we're not together anymore. We've split up," Vaughn, 36, allegedly told an insider at the magazine. A source close to Jennifer confirmed: "They're 100 percent done."
After everything Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston have been through – the drink-driving, the mutual appreciation, the smoochy-smooch, the not getting pregnant, the living together, the making the worst film of 2006 together – and he ends it with a phone call? Wow, and we thought we were arseholes. Vince Vaughn splitting with Jennifer Aniston now is all the more surprising because Vince was rumoured to have proposed to Jennifer not so long ago, even if Jennifer Aniston did call everyone insane bull-eaters for believing it. Various reasons have been given for the split, and it's back to This Is London for those:
The magazine says that Vaughn had been put off marrying Aniston after getting a glimpse of what life with her would be like. "Vince eventually saw how needy she is, and it scared him off," a friend told the magazine. "Jen lives in a crazy world with all the media. It's just not his thing," another pal said. But don't expect Vaughn to call Aniston's ex Brad Pitt to commiserate. "Vince thinks Brad is a horse's ass," another friend said.
So what now? Well, Vince Vaughn has his rubbish-looking Santa Claus movie to be getting on with, and as for Jennifer Aniston it'll be back to screaming at the sea and prattling on about the Bermuda Triangle and being weird in Newsweek. In other words, order will be restored.
