Remember when Brad and Angelina had their W photo shoot right before the debut of their steamy thriller Mr. & Mrs. Smith? This month’s April issue with Jen and Gerard is very reminiscent of the old cover … is this Jen’s revenge?

Is Jennifer Aniston finally getting the last laugh? She and her The Bounty Hunter costar Gerard Butler pose for the April cover of W magazine and we can’t help but remember when Angelina Jolie and Jen’s ex husband Brad Pitt posed for the mag right before their movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith debuted in 2005. Angie and Brad had posed with children with the headline “domestic bliss,” a huge slap in the face to Jen.  So isn’t it fitting that Jen and Gerard’s film hits theaters Mar. 19 and the two are featured in a seven photograph spread inside the mag.

The photos were taken in Canyon Country, Ca., where they each dressed up in western gear. Gerard posed as a lawman while Jen played the damsel in distress — very fitting since her upcoming film is about being chased by her bounty hunter ex husband played by Gerard.

Jen’s tousled locks were created by her longtime hairstylist Chris McMillan. “We left her hair dirty. It just created a nice chunky texture,” Chris tells PopEater. “The key to Jennifer’s hair is no matter what you do with it — straight, frizzy, dirty — it looks like it actually grows out of her head. She’s someone for whom her hair doesn’t wear her, she wears it,” he describes.”
