Jen and Vince: The Way They Weren't

10/5/2006 6:46 PM PDT

Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston are finished ... or so it seems. The "Break-Up" stars confirmed through third parties yesterday in Us Weekly that their year-long fling is over. Since last October, the couple has been seen in all kinds of cozy positions -- but they've also done everything possible not to be seen together. What is certain is this: the DVD release of "The Break-Up" follows rather conveniently soon upon the heels of the couple's own publicly announced split.

So were they just playing coy this whole time, or did they contrive one of the most closely-followed non-relationships ever? (They are actors, after all.) TMZ takes a look back at the L'Affair Vaughniston.
