Angelina Jolie Vs. Jen Aniston: Who Do Men Find More Attractive?

We pitted Brad's (pun!) future and ex-wives against one another to find out who most men prefer.

It's the age-old question … or, at least it feels that way since Brad Pitt dumped Jennifer Aniston for Angelina Jolie in 2005. Who exactly is more irresistible: Angie or Jen?

It seems like an impossible question since both are such talented, intelligent, gorgeous actresses. But Brad and Jen's divorce and the infidelity controversy that followed caused a media sensation that has us still debating this question today. Brad Pitt Saves Face: Jennifer Aniston's "A Dear Friend Of Mine"


It was the split heard around the globe – how could America's sweethearts, Brad and Jennifer, be divorcing? They were so talented, so charismatic, so beautiful together. How could anyone else look so good with Brad?

Enter Angelina Jolie.

With her long, raven hair, impossibly full lips and tatted bod, it seemed that Brad had turned over to the dark, rebellious side. Angelina was the vixen and, according to many, a homewrecker for destroying a perfect Hollywood marriage. When details of Angie's involvement with Brad emerged, it created an ironclad divide of millions of fans between those that were Pro-Jen and those that were Pro-Angie.


Seven years later, the rivalry still holds strong (despite all parties claiming they have no hard feelings) and has many in a tizzy. Now that Brad and Angelina are engaged—making Angie his second wife—we want to know more than ever: who would most men rather have, Brad's wife number one or wife number two?

Let's break it down, shall we?

Jennifer Aniston
Jen, 43, initially won us all over as the sweet, rich girl, Rachel Green, on TV's iconic comedy, Friends. Funny, perfectly tanned and with the most beautiful legs in Hollywood, Jen was—and still is—the girl next door. It's as simple and definitive as saying that everyone wants to be her friend. Not only is she gorgeous and the epitome of a person who lives an active and healthy lifestyle, Jen's appeal also lies in her ability to remain sweet and effortless at every public appearance and interview.

Angelina Jolie
Then there's Angelina. Famous for scandalous roles in movies such as Gia and Girl, Interrupted, Angie, 37, exudes sex appeal at every step without even trying. Openly bisexual, a bit dangerous (remember that vial of blood she used to wear around her neck?) and incredibly diplomatic, Angelina surprised the world when she became a goodwill ambassador for UNHCR in 2001 and adopted Maddox, Zahara and Pax from Cambodia, Ethiopia and Vietnam, respectively. Angie's appeal lies in her ability to keep the public guessing about her next move; she's utterly unpredictable.


At least, that's our impression of these two leading ladies. But, what do the men think?

Survey Says ...
In our recent Irresistible You survey results, we found that the majority of men do in fact find Jennifer to be more irresistible than Angie, crediting her as the "Most Irresistible Female Celebrity" in their eyes. (Oddly enough, the majority of women chose the reverse, with Angie on top and Jennifer a close second.) You Voted: And The Most Irresistible Celebrities Are...


Could it be Angelina's reputation as a homewrecker that turns men off? Or, perhaps it's simply that men prefer Jen's look – bronzed, fit and seemingly ageless compared to an often very thin, very pale Angelina.

Whatever the reason may be, Jennifer Aniston reigns supreme with the fellas. Even if Angie did win Brad over, Jen has won over the majority of all men … so there!
