Movie star Vince Vaughn is glad he kept a low profile during his romance with Jennifer Aniston because he avoided a media circus when the couple split up.

The Swingers star has rarely spoken about his relationship with his The Break-up co-star, and he tells the new issue of Playboy that thanks to the way he kept the romance low-key, he's rarely asked about it.

He says, “I never enjoyed the paparazzi side of it (fame). 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.

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

But Vaughn still has fond memories of his time with Aniston, who is now engaged to wed another actor, Justin Theroux.

He adds, “She's great.”
