John Arrives to Celebrate Jennifer's Record Breaking Weekend
John Arrives to Celebrate Jennifer's Record Breaking Weekend

Jennifer Aniston and the Cox-Arquette family celebrated Christmas Eve with their annual dinner at Mastro's, but Jennifer's real present arrived at LAX on Friday morning. John Mayer flew into town with his two brothers and the group was soon off to dinner at Wolfgang's Steakhouse. While Jen may not have made John's top five of the year list, she didn't have to worry too much about Marley & Me coming out on top at the box office over the long holiday weekend. Not only did the movie come in at number one, but it broke the record for a Christmas day release. It sounds like most of you were excited to see it in theaters and we were right there with you — Jen was fabulous and the whole movie so heartbreaking and adorable. After such a great end to 2008, Jen will have only bigger and better things to cheers on New Year's Eve before she kisses John at the stroke of midnight.

It's been established time and time again that they BOTH have famous father's so I don't see the point in continuously rehashing it. Seriously I can't believe this ridiculous pissing match is still going on. It's been way over 24 hours since it first started. Give it a fricken rest already. :oy:

Jennifer has Hollywood parentage. Her father is an actor and has been on one show for 21 years. And not that this thread has anything to do with Jolie, but if you're going to bring up her awards, she has won 3 Golden Globes in addition to the Oscar. Streep has won many awards long since she was a "pretty young thing". I think Jennifer's drama is terrible, as evidently the ticket buying audience seems to agree, but she was good in the Good Girl. Her biggest selling movies are comedies.

Frankly, I think Ange is a terrible actress who wouldn't be anywhere if it wasn't for her beautiful face, well-crafted media sex appeal and Hollywood dad. Yes, her movies make a lot of money but only the ones where she prances about with guns doing stunts and taking clothes off. Whenever she's in a dramatic role, her movies tank. Most of the critics are not that impressed with her either. She may have won an Oscar and is nominated for a Golden Globe but awards have not been the hallmark of quality for a very long time. With the exception of Helen Mirren, most of the awards tend to go to young pretty things. Young and pretty + hollywood parentage + play a psycho = a guaranteed academy award! As for Jen, since she grew up as a slightly chubby and insecure girl, she had to rely on talent and character to get anywhere. She's not only a really good comedy actress (which is something far more difficult than action) but also a surprisingly excellent dramatic one. Please refer to The Good Girl, Friends with Money, Derailed etc. to see what I mean.

What a relief that Aniston was in a hit movie. Perhaps now the Faniston's can relax. Statistically neither Jennifer or Brad are as bankable as Owen Wilson, who has been in movies that had a total box office gross of $2,140,796,747; average gross of movies he's starring in: $57,814,268. Compared to Jennifer's $688,831,101 total gross of all films she has been in; Average gross movie starring in: $45,921,740. Brad has $1,634,826,750 total career gross; average gross of movies starring him $61,129,452. Though some of the biggest successes in those numbers include Bruce Almighty and the Break-up, which sold about as many tickets as Jennifer's other 14 movies total. Brad had 7 films over the $100 million mark, plus Jesse James which made under $4 million. Owen's been in a lot of huge films like Armageddon, Fockers, Wedding Crashers, Cars, Night at Museum, all which sold over $200 million each. (all numbers are prior to last week's releases.)

What's the big deal? Even Tom Cruise' movie did well at the box office. Brad can't act..I think an actor should have more than one or two facial expressions on his face during a movie. Angelina conveys more emotion in one eye than brad could ever dream of...

Jen and Owen were both very good in the movie. The book was good and therefore the movie is good but they did a really good job in it. I enjoyed it and will get the dvd when it comes out. It was funny, warmhearted and true to life. I saw Benjamin Button too but I didn't care at all for it. Regardless of who you like, it just wasn't a very good movie. The first half was boring then he turns into a child at the end. I just failed to find it very entertaining. Brad just didn't put himself into it like he should have.

Sabrina27 & pinkprincess, no one BROUGHT up Angelina here for the heck of it and stop asserting that they did. The M E D I A brought her into it and so go spank them. And another thing, Sabrina27, it's attitudes like "I'm glad Jen's movie kicked Brad's butt at the box office" that keep the mess going. If I sound ticked, I am because I find it amazing how the same ones have no problem whatsoever picking apart on a consistant basis Brad, Angelina and anything pertaining to them, but Jen gets a critic or two, and a valid one at that, and the same want to cry foul. She IS getting all the credit for the movie. She DID strip for the PR. She IS being hailed as beating out her ex. There's not one thing said that the media didn't stick out there first so hold your roll.

I like how the haters said the movie will bomb, because it's a JA movie and now that it's no. 1 they say it's the dog's movie. Always trying to find excuse, so funny.

How does Angelina not "have the appeal of a large audience" when people tend to get extremely fired up over her? THAT is mass appeal...it's that "it" factor. She may not be well-liked, but as an actor, she's really well-respected. I still don't understand why Jennifer Aniston's name has to have Angelina Jolie's name in the next breath. If anyone should be taken down that road, shouldn't it be Brad? How does he get off scott free?! I didn't see the CBS show, but if that really happened, that is pretty crappy. Didn't Jennifer make the rounds and say "let's not be catty"? Let it go, people. Let it go... I'm happy for the Marley & Me success, because it was a great book. I love when great books turn into good movies. How could it NOT have done better than Benjamin Buttons? It was in the cards--well-known book, cute as hell dog, family oriented...any other actors could've taken over the leads and it still would've done really well. I'd be surprised if it didn't open at #1. Buttons was a wonderful movie, too, and it was superbly acted, but it certainly wasn't for anyone under the age of 15. It's not a question of Jen vs. Brad, and just because her film made more money doesn't mean "she's beaten him." Nothing's changed. Again, let it go people...especially media people! I have to look up that CBS show. That is just horrible! Finally, I hope there's NYE pix of John and his brothers. They are just too gorgeous for words! I also hope Jen & John wear something other than black. :) Either way they will look pretty, though...

I'm sooo excited for Jennifer Aniston. I saw M&M this weekend and it was fantastic. Both her and Owen did a great job and was adorable. A great movie for a great book. Its great she kicked Brad's butt at the box office. Thanks Amanda for providing the average per screen dollars, it shows that Brad's movie would not have beaten M&M. Lets not even bring Angelina into the equation because she does not have the appeal of a large audience and never will.

What has Jen's PR team got to do with anything? And people keep saying that like she is the only actress with a "team". The film spoke for itself. Bloggers,Newsreaders, entertainment presenters etc has their own minds you know....but oh wait, i forgot anyone who says anything remotely positive about her is part of her PR team...or hired...paid by etc Enough with this nonesense. Give it a rest already. The film did well end of. Stop feeding the media.

A Might Heart didn't fail at the Box office. It was an independent film it was never intended to be a box office hit...the media doesn't get the concept of films so just because a big star is in one its supposed to be a hit. I could care less Jen's film is number one. I am more annoyed with the again comparing of the box office which then again led to "show downs" between Angie and Jen...and Angie is way above being compared to this woman over and over. They have a man in common and nothing much else. I would really like all the triangle crap to end.

Cinquetta, my comment, assuming that you're refering to my first post, is NOT directed at anyone in particular. Sorry if you thought that was about you. Jakob, what do you mean Jen's pr is saying that Jen beat Brad?? Did her rep made a comment about it? So far I've seen these type of comments from several bloggers and of course the tabloids. If it had been the other way around they will be saying Brad beat Jen or something like that. In that case, would it be fair to say Brad's pr planted that.

At least they all have films out, being actors, the thing they used to be known for. I for one am glad about that.

Jen and her people are acting like this was Jen's movie all by her self and completely dissed Owen. Jen's pr people are passing this as Jen's movie and saying Jen beat Brad's movie. Why ignore Cate who was also in TCCBB, what about her. What gives Jen and her pr team the right to even proclaim this to be her movie by herself. Look at what is written up top where is Owen's name. How many post have you put up congratulating him. There is just some so mentally ill about this whole triangle mess.
