Joan Collins is trying to explain why she told a British magazine that Jennifer Aniston is cute, but not beautiful like Angelina Jolie.

Collins tells The Awful Truth her comments were taken out of context but doesn't deny the Jen/Angelina comparison:

"The bottom line is that I talked about several actresses, among them Catherine Zeta-Jones, Scarlett Johansson and Megan Fox. Unfortunately, everybody got cut out [except Aniston and Jolie]. Typical. That's the way it goes."

Aniston's camp has acknowledged Collins' comments, saying there is "no need to engage with that nonsense."
