Courteney Cox is the latest celebrity in Jennifer Aniston's inner circle to rally around her in the wake of Brangelina's divorce drama.

After her husband Justin Theroux labelled the tabloid interest around his wife as "trash", her Friends co-star has leapt to her defence, saying "It's not about her."

"I feel like we're exacerbating it by even talking about it," she told Entertainment Tonight.

After the initial shock of Angelina filing for divorce last Monday wore off, the focus immediately shifted on Brad Pitt's ex-wife - flooding social media with gifs and memes.

The couple split in 2005 after five years of marriage, the same year Brad went public with his romance with Angelina.

Soon after the news broke, Aniston was forced to deny a "fabricated" story that she was also on the brink of a split with her husband of one year.

And Theroux wasn't pulling any punches when he was asked by Business Insider about the couple being dragged into her ex-husband's split drama.

"As a child of divorce all I can say is that’s terrible news for those children and that's all you can really say," he said.

"It’s boring to sort of comment on anything else. People are having a bad time, that's horrible.”

"There’s an endless appetite for trash, apparently, though everyone would say that they don’t have that appetite," he said. "

"But I think a lot of people do because people buy it. But there are bigger things to bitch about. It’s shocking how much bandwidth things can take up when there are far more important things going on in the world."
