Jennifer Aniston and the headline that won't die

Jennifer Aniston has one story that follows her like an old boyfriend who can't take a hint. And it always includes the names Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

The headline that won't die? Surprise, it's "the triangle with my ex-husband -– and that there's a feud there," Aniston says in the March issue of InStyle magazine. "It's constant. It's a story headline that won't go away, but it's a money thing."

Media types love the money they make off "a story that has nothing to do with reality," she tells the mag.

(Pardon us a moment while we count our pennies. OK, done!)

Back in reality, however, Aniston says she's got a lot going on, including the new film "Wanderlust" with Paul Rudd, which opens Feb. 24. Sometimes, however, she seems surprised by how long things have been going on.

Though the 42-year-old actress (whose birthday is Saturday) says she feels young, she also notes, "You lose perspective ... being offered the part of a woman with a 17-year-old child. It's like, 'I'm not old enough to have a 17-year-old!' And then you realize, well, yeah, you are."
