Brad Pitt may have dumped Jennifer Aniston for Angelina Jolie and then rubbed it in her face by being photographed with Jolie and their growing family every other day for two years, but, so far at least, Aniston's movie is whupping Brad's movie's butt!
Big Hollywood just came out with preliminary box office numbers for Christmas Day, and "Marley & Me" has edged out "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" for the Number One slot.
"Marley" clocked in with $13.9 million in ticket sales, while "Button" lagged slightly behind with $11.1 million.
"Bedtime Stories," "Valkyrie," and "The Spirit" round out the Top 5, which means Adam Sandler also beat Tom Cruise, although, since the two were never married, that's not as interesting.
Remember, these are early numbers, and there are still three days left in the big Christmas holiday weekend for "Button" to make up ground on "Marley," but for one glorious day, Jen can bask in the knowledge that she opens a movie better than her ex.
