Jennifer Aniston apparently isn’t friends with Katie Couric.

Aniston, who appeared on E!’s “Chelsea Lately” on Wednesday to promote her upcoming film, “We’re the Millers,” slammed the veteran newswoman when host Chelsea Handler brought her up.

Katie Couric was asking me on her show about your wedding and I had to act like I didn’t even know you were engaged because I didn’t know that was out,” Handler said. “Then she was like, ‘Well, everyone knows about it!’ So, I felt really stupid.”

Aniston responded, “What’s Katie Couric? Is she a legitimate journalist? Is she getting tabloidy? Wasn’t she on theTodayshow?”

“She was on theToday’ show,” quipped Handler. “She got a demotion to her own show.”

  1. Professional Viewer-Critic says:

    Katie Couric is the same thing as Rosie O’Donnell- a person who made a living posing as “America’s sweetheart” but as soon as she revealed her true self and her ugly politics, America dumped her butt. Rosie tried and failed to come back as has Katie. Oprah could not leverage all of her wealth and influence to revive Rosie’s dead career and syndication hasn’t helped Katie Couric at all. I hope they both were wise with their money so they can live out the rest of their days without a tv career, because that chapter is closed.
    Maybe they could join forces and do a web series called “Hater Babes” and just talk about all of the people they hate since that has become the rep anyway.

    Tell me Jen are you a legitimate actor? Playing Rachel on TV and then the exact same character in every project since does not make you an actor. It makes you a pretty woman with an actor for a father, and that seems to be about it. At least Katie Couric did something for America – she saved the future generations from having Palin as VP!
