Jennifer Aniston let Katie Couric have it on "Chelsea Lately," wondering out loud if the talk show host and former anchor of CBS News is "a legitimate journalist."

According to Us Weekly, the fun began during a July 31 appearance on Chelsea Handler's show on E! when Aniston was asked about a tabloid rumor that she and fiance Justin Theroux are nudists.

Handler read the article: "Jen's started to embrace her curves at home since longtime lover, nudist Justin, has persuaded her to join in on the fun. She was hesitant at first but now she finds it extremely liberating and they spend entire days at home without any clothes on and even cook naked."

As Us Weekly reported, Aniston rolled her eyes and asked, "What are you reading? Star magazine? We don't walk around nude, darling."

Handler then told Aniston, "I've seen Justin nude, I hope you know that." Aniston laughed and said, "Yeah, well, that's because you barge into places you shouldn't be. But he's comfortable enough in his skin." In regards to the Star story, Aniston clarified, "That's not true. It's B.S."

Us Weekly says, Handler told Aniston it's difficult being friends with someone so famous. "Katie Couric was asking me on her show about your wedding and I had to act like I didn't even know you were engaged because I didn't know that was out," she said. "Then she was like, 'Well, everyone knows about it!' So, I felt really stupid."

Annoyed, Aniston asked, "What's Katie Couric? Is she a legitimate journalist? Is she getting tabloidy? Wasn't she on the 'Today' show?"

"She was on the 'Today' show," said Handler, who went with Couric to the White House Correspondents Dinner in May 2010. "She got a demotion to her own show."
