Movie beauty Jennifer Aniston was "angry, hurt and embarrassed" when she first saw photos of her estranged husband Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie holidaying together - because she realised their relationship had started before she left the hunk.

Jolie and Pitt have repeatedly denied reports they're dating since Pitt and Aniston ended their marriage in January (05), despite numerous pictures of the Mr And Mrs Smith co-stars travelling to Europe and Africa with Jolie's adopted son MADDOX.

The former FRIENDS star was horrified when she saw pictures of Pitt and Jolie playing with Maddox on an African beach in April (05) but believes his claim he didn't sleep with Jolie while they were filming the romantic comedy.

She tells Vanity Fair magazine, "The world was shocked and I was shocked. I'd be a robot if I said I didn't feel moments of anger, of hurt, of embarrassment.

"I can't say that was one of the highlights of my year. Who would deal with that and say, 'Isn't that sweet. That looks like fun.'

"But bad stuff happens. You joke and say, 'What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.'

"I don't think he started an affair physically, but I think he was attracted to her."
