Commercials are far from our favorite things. And yet, American Express has managed to make ones we don’t fast forward through by plucking uber-cool celebrities, like Tina Fey and Wes Anderson, and creating mini movies with them.

Both of them made early exits from their respective shows after a big blow-out fight. Both of them like to juggle multiple love interests—Justin is rumored to have actually had two girlfriends while filming the “The Bachelorette” and Angelina famously got with Vinny while dating Jose. Not to mention that wrestler Justin totally looks like Angelina’s juicehead type. Maybe this will last? [People] Keep reading »
