Man Lab Showdown: Jennifer Aniston vs. Malin Akerman

This weekend is setting up to be one of the more interesting weekends in cinema for a while. That’s because rumour has it that Jennifer Aniston is going nude in the new movie Wanderlust which is debuting this weekend. While guys have been waiting for Aniston to finally have a full-fledged proper nude scene, that might not be the highlight of the movie because Canadian star Malin Akerman is also starring in the movie. And that inspires this edition of the Man Lab Showdown. In one corner is America’s sweetheart Jennifer Aniston. In the other is Canadian comedic star Malin Akerman.

Man Lab Showdown: Megan Fox vs. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Technically, we’re a month late for the epic Transformers showdown of Michael Bay’s two pieces of constantly-in-peril eye candy. The original Transformers girl was Megan Fox who shot to fame in the role of the girl who inexplicably hooked up with Shia LaBeouf’s character. Then she got fired because Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg didn’t like the idea of an actress who had a mind of her own. So they hired Transformers 3 girl Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, a model who’s acting experience was limited to pretending to be attracted to Jason Statham.
