Fug the Cover: Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler

I know it’s not supposed to, but this cover cracks me up. Gerard Butler is too wacky to pull off that expression without looking like he’s being sarcastic about it, and while Aniston looks beautiful facially, she also sort of looks like a very realistic life-size doll that Gerard has found resting on the side of the road and has decided to tote home. (The stockings don’t help.) Every time I look at his VERY SERIOUS MANLY EXPRESSION — and his super-rolled up shirt sleeves — I just giggle. I am not sure is this “turning up the heat” as the cover promises. It seems more like “joshing around in the dirt between takes of a very ill-advised Bonnie and Clyde remake.” In fairness, I agree that headline would not have moved copies.
