Things grew tense on Tuesday morning’s Today show when Jennifer Aniston was asked about a rumor that Oprah Winfrey was planning to throw an $8 million wedding for her and boyfriend Vince Vaughn.
“I thought you weren’t going to go there,” Catherine Keener, Aniston’s costar in the new movie Friends with Money, said to Today entertainment reporter Jill Rappaport as Aniston and costar Joan Cusack looked on silently.
When Rappaport asked the question, Aniston had just finished saying she didn’t mind giving interviews, so long as the topic was the movie, not her love life.
Rappaport acknowledged Keener’s instinct to protect Aniston, but said she was still curious about the rumors because she herself had never been to an $8 million wedding.
“And now you won’t be,” said Keener, as Aniston remained tight-lipped.
Friends with Money opens in limited engagements Friday.
In addition to promoting her new film, Aniston has also recently been in Chicago with Vaughn shooting additional scenes for the couple’s upcoming film The Break Up.
