It’s been four years since Jennifer Aniston’s divorce from Brad Pitt. And it’s six kids later for Brad and Angelina Jolie’s expanding brood. But the battle is still being fought over who did what with whom and when. “Husband-stealer!” some Aniston fans cry. “Withholding children!” say Angie supporters.

Team Aniston and Team Jolie were at it again this month after Aniston called Jolie’s recent comments about falling in love with Brad on the set of “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” totally “uncool.”

No matter whose side you’re on, here’s an interesting look back at Jen’s men and Angie’s um, acquisitions. Turns out that falling in love with hunky co-stars is just part of the job perks in Hollywood

So which woman has the best taste in leading men? You decide! (WireImage)
