Jennifer Esposito has begrudgingly found herself back in the spotlight after she weighed in on ex-husband Bradley Cooper’s intimate Oscars performance with Lady Gaga.

When the actress, 45, commented “Ha” to a post by comedian David Spade that joked about the possibility of an X-rated romance between the A Star Is Born costars, fans noticed.

“So confused. I get off a flight to see a comment I made of “HA” to a joke from @DavidSpade has gone wild!?” she wrote on Twitter Tuesday. “Somehow I’m insulting an X by laughing at a joke someone else made? Pls take your insanity elsewhere.”

Esposito and Cooper called it quits in 2007 after several months of marriage. The actress has kept busy in the years since, filling her plate with a number of television roles.

After the breakup in 2014, Esposito released her memoir Jennifer’s Way: My Journey with Celiac Disease — What Doctors Don’t Tell You and How You Can Learn to Live Again.

Publishers Weekly called it a “helpful guide for living with Celiac disease, with tips on eating out and dating, as well as appealing recipes…Her story will no doubt appeal to her fans and others with chronic health issues.”

ABC’s Mistresses cast the star to help fill the gap left by Alyssa Milano following her exit, and Esposito played Calista Raines for one season in 2015.

The actress also had a recurring role on Showtime’s The Affair as Nina Solloway, the sister of Dominic West’s character Noah.

Esposito left NCIS after playing series regular Alex Quinn for one season in 2017, and one year later, appeared in two episodes of the NBC series Blindspot. She also had a co-starring role opposite John Travolta in the movie Speed Kills.

So far in 2019, she had a guest spot on an episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit that aired Feb. 14.

Esposito currently has two projects in post-production: a sci-fi TV series from Seth Rogen, Eric Kripke and Evan Goldberg called The Boys, as well as a film called Apalachin, also starring Jamie-Lynn Sigler and David Arquette, according to iMDB.

The actress also has a horror film with Gary Oldman and Emily Mortimer called Mary in the pipeline.

Esposito and Cooper tied in the knot in December 2006 after a brief engagement, and the actress filed for divorce in May 2007.

He is currently in a relationship with model Irina Shayk, with whom he shares a 1-year-old daughter named Lea De Seine.
