They split over eight years ago, but it appears Vince Vaughn is finally ready to talk about his ex-girlfriend Jennifer Aniston. The actor said his former girlfriend is "great" but admitted he struggled with the attention their relationship attracted.

"She's great," Vince told Playboy magazine. "For me personally – and I think most well-known actors who are together feel this way – I never enjoyed the paparazzi side of it.

"You like someone and you're spending time with them; that's separate and that was all fine. But I really spent most of that time finding ways not to be drawn into the attention."

Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston dated for over a year

The 44-year-old said that he felt avoiding the press attention helped him to deal with their split better.

"I think laying low and not talking about it put me in a good position later, because I just wasn't part of anything."

Vince and Jennifer dated for over a year after filming romantic comedy The Break-Up together. It was Jennifer's first high-profile relationship following her divorce from Brad Pitt, and understandably the public were fascinated by their romance.

The couple confirmed their break-up in December 2006 and said that they continued to be "good friends".

Vince went on to marry Kyla Weber in 2010 and the couple have two children together – four-year-old daughter Lochlyn Kyla Vaughn and 18-month-old son Vernon Lindsay Vaughn.

The Wedding Crashers actor described married life as "terrific", but told the magazine, "it's the hardest thing I think you'll ever do. You have to really work at it and want it".

Meanwhile Jennifer has been engaged to fellow actor Justin Theroux since August 2012. The 46-year-old has often spoke about her frustration at the level of media interest in their relationship and revealed that she and Justin have found a way to deal with the constant speculation. "We know what our truth is," the star explained in January. "That's all just static."
