Jen and Vince's Romantic ‘Break-up'
May 22, 2006

It's the Hollywood romance that kicked up a media storm, and now for the first time, Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn talk about "The Break-up" and each other, candid and uncensored!

There was plenty of dirt to dish, especially since Jen bares it all in the film for a sizzling nude scene with Vince.

Even though the two are a real-life couple, Jen admitted that she still had her reservations about baring all. "Of course I was nervous," she confessed. "I'm not saying I was comfortable, and no, I won't do it again."

Vince, on the other hand, was a little more enthused. "That was the first day, that was the only day, that I showed up early," Vince revealed. "I was the last one to leave the set, and I was like, ‘Guys, I think we're making a mistake walking away from this!'"

So exactly how many takes did it take to get the scene right? "I don't remember how many takes," Vince said. "Maybe 64. No one told me I was going to heaven that day!"

Vince's back was turned for most of Jen's revealing nude scene, and he admitted to not taking any extra peeks. "Only in character," he insisted. And Jen was kind enough to vouch for him: "Only in character, that's actually true. He was very respectful."

It was "The Break-up," which Vince co-wrote and produced, that ignited the couple's real-life love story. "When we were writing the screenplay, we had Jennifer in mind right away," Vince revealed.

The adoring couple admitted their chemistry was immediate. "We had the best time," Jen said. "He's just a really easygoing, unaffected, no-ego guy. You know, it was refreshing."

Jen was filming "The Break-up" during her own breakup with ex-husband Brad Pitt. And despite her personal life being splashed all over the headlines, Jen said the movie actually helped her heal. "If this movie had come along at another time, I don't know if I could have done as good a job as I should have done in honoring it," she admitted.

As far as her past goes, Jen merely said, "You can't change anybody. We can guide people toward what we want. I don't think the love ever goes away, but the loooove goes away."

That's good advice from a girl with a hot new love and a hot new film! "The Break-up" opens June 2.
