Jennifer Aniston has opened up about her split with Brad Pitt.

Dubbed Hollywood's golden couple, the A-list stars were divorced in 2005 after five years of marriage.

While Pitt has since married his Mr and Mrs Smith co-star Angelina Jolie, and is the father of six children, Aniston too is engaged to Justin Theroux, but the discussion around the couple's sensational split has not abated.

In a candid interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the 45-year-old star said of the public break-up: "Nobody did anything wrong. But we wish nothing but wonderful things for each other. You know what I mean? It was just like, sometimes things [happen]."

It was widely speculated that the marriage ended as a result of an alleged affair between Pitt and Jolie during the shooting of the 2005 film Mr & Mrs Smith, but the Cake actress said the speculation now needs to end.

"We're not in daily communication," she explained. "If the world only could just stop with the stupid, soap-opera bulls***. There's no story. I mean, at this point it's starting to become — please, give more credit to these human beings."

Her comments come on the back of an interview with Entertainment Tonight last week in which she addressed the controversy directly. "I think it's time people stop with that petty B.S. and just start celebrating great work and stop with the petty kind of silliness. It's just tiresome and old. It's like an old leather shoe. Let's buy a new pair of shiny shoes."

Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt have both moved on since their divorce.

Showing good grace and demonstrating that she really has moved on, the Emmy winner also described Jolie's directorial work on Unbroken as "so beautiful and wonderful" adding that she "did such a gorgeous job."

The former Friends star went on to talking about her present relationship with fiancée Justin Theroux. "'He's the easiest guy to hang around... It was the first time I remember being so comfortable [with a romantic interest], like with all my gay friends," she explained.

And while her wedding is also a focus of interest, there's no escaping the baby question.

"Listen, that's a topic that's so exhausted. I get nervous around that, just because it's very personal," she said. "Who knows if it's going to happen? It's been a want. We're doing our best."
