Heath Ledger, The Dark Knight
On the one-year anniversary of his death, Heath Ledger earned a supporting actor Academy Award nomination for his role as The Joker in The Dark Knight.

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.

In particular, Aniston points to Jolie's 2007 Vogue interview in which she reveals how the Brangelina romance blossomed on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith — while Pitt and Aniston were still married.
"There was stuff printed there that was definitely from a time when I was unaware that it was happening," Aniston said. "That stuff about how she couldn't wait to get to work every day? That was really uncool."
