It’s the battle that’s almost single-handedly powered newsstand sales of tabloid magazines for the second half of the last decade. When Brad Pitt divorced Jennifer Aniston in 2005 and quickly took up with the ravenous Angelina Jolie, gossiphounds everywhere found themselves choosing sides. After all, this wasn’t simply a story of a handsome movie star leaving one gorgeous actress for another gorgeous actress; rather, the salacious coverage morphed into a discussion that eventually became a deep-seated exploration of our country’s social mores. Should women sacrifice their careers to have children? At what point is it socially acceptable to begin dating after a divorce? And, most importantly, do men prefer women with light or dark hair?
So, who do you side with in this eternal debate? Remember, without the all-consuming Team Aniston vs. Team Jolie wars of the middle aughts, there never would’ve been an opportunity for you to buy that Team Edward or Team Jacob t-shirt that we know you have hidden in the deepest recesses of your closet. The comment section awaits, people!
