Jennifer Aniston

Whether or not Jennifer Aniston labeling Angelina Jolie's past behavior in the new issue of Vogue as "uncool" is, well, cool itself, the actress doesn't see how else she could've responded to the interviewer's question.

"I basically just answered it as honestly as I could," Aniston said on The Oprah Winfrey Show, airing Thursday.

Getting candid for the first time since her split from Brad Pitt in 2005, the star, who returns to primetime in a 30 Rock guest spot Thursday night, voiced her discontent to Vogue about Jolie publicly timelining her blossoming relationship with Pitt while he was still married to Aniston.

In the same piece, the 39-year-old reserved kinder words for her ex-husband, and the same held true during her sit-down with Winfrey.

"He's done some amazing things in the last couple of years," she said. "So I just think he's doing great."

Not even dueling films can change that. Pitt's age-reversing The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Aniston's puppy love-fest Marley & Me are both scheduled to open Christmas Day. "We all want our movie to do well," she said. "Can we have a tie?"

As for her current love life, involving on-again beau John Mayer, Aniston echoed yet another Vogue answer: "I've been unbelievably lucky in love."

"It just might not look the way it's supposed to look at this point," she said.
