Playing on the tabloid rumor that Oprah Winfrey was going to throw an $8 million wedding for Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn, the comic-actor thanked the talk-show queen on Wednesday for her “very nice gesture” and noted, “I’m expecting a pretty good band for $8 million.”

Even though Aniston and Winfrey shot down the report about the expensive wedding last month, Winfrey told Vaughn on her program Wednesday: “One of the things I asked Jennifer is, will $8 million be enough?”

“Yeah”, said Vaughn, rolling his eyes for comic effect. “Come on.”

As for living with such rumors since being linked to Aniston, Vaughn shrugged and said: “I just don t pay much attention to that stuff. I find it to be really ridiculous.”

Still, for the record, Vaughn and Aniston do not intend to walk down the aisle soon, he said. But he did say of Aniston, who costars with him in the new romantic comedy The Break Up, “Jennifer’s great. She’s one of my favorite people.”

“She’s one of mine, too,” interjected Winfrey.

“She’s just really smart and funny and easy to be with – very considerate,” persisted Vaughn. “She’s great.”

When asked about starting a family Vaughn said he’d like to have children “at some point” – just not quite yet. “I think (having children) takes a lot of focus, takes a lot of attention. I think it would be nice at some point to have a different priority I think that time would come. But not any time in the near future for me.”

And, just in case anyone is wondering: “No, I have not talked about having kids with Jennifer,” he said. “First we have to have the $8 million wedding.”
