Vince Vaughn played cowboy for a photoshoot for this week's issue of Parade, where he promotes the DVD of his Wild West Comedy Show. In the article he's as lovable as ever, talking about his alliterative name, his time on tour, and his famous co-stars. Here are highlights:
- On Jennifer Aniston: “I have such a great friendship with Jennifer. Really. I still talk to her constantly. I have a real, genuine connection with Jen. And I have a real appreciation of her. That continues to this day.”
- On Owen Wilson: "Owen Wilson is still a very close friend. Honestly, he's the nicest, smartest, greatest guy in the world. I don't really know what happened to him, truthfully, and I don't really care. I don't think anyone knows. Everyone has stuff to go through. We all do in life."
To read more about what Vince had to say about working with and all those rumors about Reese and more, just
- On his name: "My dad's name is Vernon and my mom liked the initials, VV. My sisters and I got named Victoria, Valerie and Vincent so we'd be VV's, too. But, then when you start getting pets' names that start with a 'v,' it's a little embarrassing. When you are Vince Vaughn, and you go out to scream for 'Viking' the dog to come home, that's a little much. Then, Mom started looking in a dictionary for names and we ended up with a female Chihuahua, named Vanadis after some mythological goddess. So Victoria, Valerie and Vince were out playing with Vanadis. When I finally got a dog, I named him Rowdy. I had to break the chain."
- On the rumors that he and Reese haven't been getting along: "I think there were stories that we were clashing on the set. That couldn't be further from the truth. I adore her. She's not only a great actress, she's very funny. We've been having a really good time. You predicted that the press would say that we were dating, but they went the other way and said we're fighting. The two of us get along great."
We're glad he cleared up the rumors about the bad blood between him and Reese since we've been looking forward to seeing their chemistry in Four Christmases next year.
