Reese Witherspoon and Angelina Jolie are blessing us all by making the rounds on magazine covers and talk shows this December because both have new movies out. Jolie’s movie The Tourist, co-starring Johnny Depp, opened this past weekend to bad reviews and a poor box office showing. Reese Witherspoon’s new movie How Do You Know, co-starring the incredible trio of Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson, and Jack Nicholson, opens this week. It doesn’t have a score on Rotten Tomatoes yet, but with a cast like that I’m expecting it to be a pretty good flick.
It occurred to me that Witherspoon v Jolie would make for a pretty good face off. In the past, we’ve done Natalie Portman v Mila Kunis, Anne Hathaway v Rachel McAdams, and Sofia Vergara v Julie Bowen. Reese v Angelina is much like Vergara v Bowen because we are looking at women in their 30s who already have kids but still look ridiculously good, plus there is a distinct contrast of styles: blonde v brunette; cute v sexy; hot soccer mom v blood-drinking, foreign-child-adopting home wrecker. (Well, it’s true!)
As I always do in these face off posts, I give you the opportunity to vote and provide your comments after viewing a gallery of hand-selected photos of these two gorgeous women. And I am leaving the voting criteria vague on purpose.
Who is it going to be guys: the 35-year old Angelina Jolie (left) or the 34-year old Reese Witherspoon (right)?
