Make it a double: Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron smolder on their respective W February covers.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?

Like you had to ask. W Magazine has tapped beautiful blondes Charlize Theron (up next as the Evil Queen in Snow White and the Huntsman) and Brad Pitt for its February Movie Issue's two cover shoots, lensed by Mario Sorrenti.

We don't need to tell you that the results are predictably dreamy, with Pitt sitting poolside in a dismantled Tom Ford tux, while Theron vamps it up in a plunging plum silk chiffon Botttega Veneta halter dress paired with Martin Katz 18k white gold and diamond chandelier earrings.

And though her smoldering, mostly horizontal accompanying fashion spread starring lacy Fleur of England lingerie and gorgeous dresses from Marchesa, Oscar de la Renta, and her beloved Dior would suggest otherwise, Theron insists to editor at large Lynn Hirschberg that she's far from perfect.

For starters, she had no front teeth for the first eight years of her life (antibiotics rotted them). She was also "too tall" to pursue a career as a ballerina, and, yes, she really does wear the fake boob cutlets seen on her character Mavis in Young Adult.

"If you don’t have boobs, you wear those cutlets," the December Vogue cover girl says. 

"I heard a story of a girl who was on a date, started making out, and thought, Oh, he’s going to touch the cutlets! So she went to the bathroom to take them off, but her purse was too small to put them in there. I always thought that was a funny image, a woman not knowing what to do with these things that you stick onto your boobs. It’s just the most bizarre, unsexy thing there is—so I added that to Mavis."

Wow, stars are just like us! Speaking of which, Pitt's interview (accompanied by shots of him rocking more tuxes from Ford and Burberry Prorsum, along with Legends of the Fall-esque hair) includes a charming anecdote about him crying over the film Life as a House while battling Montezuma's revenge.

Nice try, Brad. But it's going to take a lot more than that to turn us off.
