A break-up between Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn has been rumoured for a while, but now things are apparently over for good.

According to People magazine, the Hollywood duo, who recently starred in the film The Break-Up, have announced their separation after dating for a year.

Stephen Huvane and John Pisani, Aniston and Vaughn's representatives, told the magazine: "After Jennifer's trip to London several weeks ago, Jennifer and Vince mutually agreed to end their relationship but continue to be good friends today."

In typical Hollywood style, it seems that the pressures of working on films in different locations have contributed to the decision to split.

Aniston has been busy working in New York and Los Angeles while Vaughn has been filming Fred Claus in London since late September.

Until the statement from their reps was released the pair have vociferously denied reports that they had broken up.

In October Vaughn threatened to sue a number of tabloid newspapers over claims that he had kissed another woman and Aniston told chat show Queen Oprah Winfrey that they were still very much together.
