Jennifer Aniston beats Brad Pitt at Christmas box office

December 29th, 2008 // 43 Comments

Hey, let’s inject relationship drama into the high-stakes world of box office projections. Oh boy! Jennifer Aniston’s Marley & Me opened on Christmas day against her ex-husband Brad Pitt’s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. In spite of all logic and reason, Jennifer’s movie actually had the top B.O. for Jesus’ birthday and went on to take the rest of the holiday weekend, according to Variety:

Twentieth Century Fox’s canine comedy “Marley and Me” was the surprise pick of the litter at the crowded Christmas box office — grossing a hefty $51.8 million for the long weekend — but there was plenty of coin to go around in one of the most prosperous holiday seasons ever for Hollywood.

Somewhere, Brad Pitt is being forced to wear the gimp outfit by Angelina Jolie. “You lost to the dog movie?! I’d close my vagina permanently if there weren’t babies falling out of it. Speaking of – *foosh* MADDOX! Sell your Xbox to buy some diapers for mommy. Now, what we’re we talking about?”

    Jennifer Anis-ton is the luckiest woman alive! Has she ever played a role that required her to act or change character?

  4. scabbeus

    Friends with money: her role was to play a dumb, loser slut. Hmmmm….that was a stretch!

    Heidi can’t keep her mouth shut and Aniston can keep her legs shut in any photo.

  6. Poptart Messiah

    Well fuck me gently with a chainsaw, Aniston beat out Pitt with a dog movie. I’m surprised anyone actually went after the whole “THE DOG DIES” fiasco.

  7. Ohh nice legs Jen, but Angelina’s legs are way better! SUCK IT!

  8. Lucy

    I have to agree with #3, she never changes character or her hair for that matter in any of her movie roles!!

    My fellow Americans, let me make this perfectly clear:

    I. Would Totally. Have Sexual Relations. With That Woman. Miss Aniston.

    The best role she has ever played was “Rachel ” in Friends…. Wonder if she’s gonna make it to the top again like she did in friends!

  12. Marley and Me does look kind of cute, I guess, but I find it hard to believe that its better (in the sense of plot and entertainment value) than The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. The latter was so gorgeously made and well acted.

    and btw, what’s with #5′s comment about Anistone not being to keep her legs closed in a photo when there’s clearly a photo included of her standing with her legs closed.

    I went to both movies. Jen and Owen clearly had the best movie. It
    was real, they were good in it and anyone who owns a pet will enjoy
    it. Benjamin Button was too long, the acting was okay but not the
    best, it was unreal and really didn’t have too much going for it
    even if it did cost $`150, million to make. The hype must be because
    they want to get their money back. He keeps getting younger and
    Cate keeps getting older, Not exactly a exciting plot. Brad is way
    over rated, Tom Cruise’s movie was even better than his. I saw
    them all.

    Huh? Do I have to get my ruler out and smack you on the knuckles?

    Now, what we’re we talking about?

    What’s that supposed to mean?

    BTW, I saw Valkyrie and it sucked! Too bad, that Tommy is such a doll face!

  15. Kay

    I haven’t even heard of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button…I don’t really pay attention to movies until they’re on DVD.

  16. Angie needed a baby daddy. Jen calls the spade because she knows the score – get naked, stick a ring in his nose and he does what he’s told – kind of like most guys I know. That makes Jen a person to be ridiculed WHY exactly? Because she’s half the actor? PLEEZ – who cares? Every movie has it’s audience -obviously. Jen’s probably having way better sex from what the bloggers say about John, and look at the smile on her face. That didn’t get there doing a staid dog movie. On the whole a hypocrite stole a dweeby happy dog away from a mainstream TV actress and elevated all three to megastar status. Joke’s on us. Kind of like what happened to the economy in a microcosm – the hypocrite being Madoff and his ilk, the dweeb being the American public, the actress being the real money, and the megastar status being the perceived money.

    I just wish that Jen would do a Playboy, or better, A PENTHOUSE spread…and I mean ass revealing, full reverse Monty…doggy-style spread. That woman is so hot. My body and tongue is at your service Miss Aniston!!

    Unfortunately for her she still wakes up as Jennifer Aniston a talentless hack who lost the only man that ever meant anything to her.

    She needs to go away. She is good at 2 things playing rachel green in every role she is in. And obsessing over how she lost brad to angie and talking to anyone that will listen about it. But then again if she didnt talk about them nobody would talk to her at all.

  20. testing

    Well Marly and Me opened is 500 more theaters, but Benjamin Button already received 5 golden globe nominations, including one for Brad. So i think this one is a tie

  21. Alex

    Who cares? Do u actually think that Pitt cares about this? Both movies did good and if you call yourself a good actor you are going to care a lot more about the recognition of your peers than you do the amount of money the movie raised. That only means that most people were just looking for a good laugh, you can’t compare two movies that are so different. I think awards are the best reward an actor can get, I don’t think Marley and Me will be nominated for any of them. So, yeah, I don’t think Pitt is concerned at all.

  22. Mal

    I find it hilarious that people keep talking about how Aniston obsesses over Jolie and keeps talking about it. She kept mum for years then mentioned it a couple of times in interviews. You all got a real weird view on what counts as obsession.

  24. Ill see both movies on HBO,,,if i ever see that Marley and me, its surely for that cute doggie…

  25. Alyssa

    I’d kill to have her body…

    Anison this – Aniston that. Good grief. It wasn’t Aniston nor Owen Wilson that made the movie. Marley won over Ben’s butt is because of the D-O-G.

    Beware. This movie may take number one of all time. It’s got the perfect storm: females want the emotional pull of a lovable dog story. Boyfriends, husbands and fellow life partners want the eye candy of Aniston. The only thing that can sink this ship is the Wilson.

    Remember Beverly Hills Chihuahua? Laughable – but, number one for weeks.

    BTW – Black Labs rule!!

  27. Alphonse

    They were going to watch the dog, not the bitch

  28. Alex

    I agree with gosyco, Black Labs rule!!! My Phoebe is the greatest ever!

  29. Ellie

    Was Owen even in the movie. Some people think Jen was the only one in the movie. I didn’t know Jen has a movie out with just her in it.
    Sucks to be in a movie by her self. Ho takes all the credit.

  30. Dav

    Yeah guess this whore was in the movie by herself let her fans tell it.

  34. friendlyfires

    yeah Brad Pitt is going home with oscar nomination while Jennifer Aniston gets to host some grody kid’s award – that’s why it all evens out.

  35. AJ

    I fell asleep watching Brad’s movie….threee hours looooooooooooong !!!!!!!!!!!!! wtf the titanic wasn’t this boring…we had to leave the theatre, me and my date hated it, sucky movie…give it all the rewards you want it still is a waste of money and time to go see

  36. Beansi

    Actually the title of this segment should read “Marly beats Brad Pitt at the Box Office”…. doesn’t someone check these things?

  37. Heather

    please get a new writer, this one’s shit.

  38. Lemmy Caution

    32-3, THAT_GIRL_JENN, that’s why we all LOVE rap.

  39. Aniston must have a great agent, she continues to tear it up in the general media

  40. pretty betty etching...

    I don’t wan’t to comment anymore. Jen is a piece of junk and boring. Plus she’s getting old and lonely. Looking for Mr. Prince… Hah! She cannot find another Brad. Brad is the only sexiest man on earth. He’s still the best actor and the best dad on earth…

  41. CAYCEE

    #13…I AGREE….BENJ BUTTONS MOVIE SUCKED….I SAW IT FOR FREE…IT IS ON THE BORING SIDE….SORRY…..STUPID STORY……TOOOO LONG…BRAD NEVER, NEVER SHOWS EMOTION…HE’S LIKE DEAD….ON THE OTHER HAND.”MARLEY AND ME” VERY, VERY ENJOYABLE…LOVED IT!!! BRAD IS WAY OVERRATED AS AN ACTOR…NOT SO GOOD…

  42. E

    Dam, its about time that she did something that puts her at #1 when it counts. I am sure that Angelina is PISSSSSSED!! That woman is obsessed with being bigger and better than Jen in every way possible and for that reason alone you just gotta laugh at the fact that her movie actually did better than his. Actually, I really was dissapointed when I saw BENJI BUTTON. It was REALLLLLLy SLOOOOOOWWWW. I was seriously surprised that he accepted the role for the film after I saw it. I assume that he was paid a lot of money to take on the part because the movie was just kinda wierd actually. There was no real story and I finished the movie feeling very jipped. Anyway, I have yet to see Jens movie but everyone keeps saying what a cute movie it is, so guesse well see. S

  43. Marley and looks like I’m pretty, I think, but I think it hard to believe that its plot and in terms of entertainment value (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button than) better. The latter made the gorgeously and well worked.

    Stop And btw, what about Anistone with comment # 5 is not locked in a snap to keep your legs when there is clearly a picture with her feet consists of her standing.
