Jennifer Aniston came out on top in the Christmas box office beat down, with her new flick, Marley & Me, breaking records and grossing $14.8 million, the highest one-day total ever for a film opening on Dec. 25.
Though, don't be crying for Jen's ex, Brad Pitt, whose The Curious Case of Benjamin Button didn't do too shabby either. The triple-hanky film set the record for the second-highest Christmas opening of all-time with $11.8 million.
According to Variety, both films exceeded box office expectations by 40-50 percent.
So Jen beats Brad at the box office, but they both are still super successful. Can't we just leave it at that? Or does there have to be a follow-up story about how Angelina Jolie is so pissed that Jen won this round that she is paying to have Marley pulled from all the theaters in New Orleans.
You know The Enquirer is working on that.
