She's one of America's favorite sweethearts, an Oscar winner and doting mother. So you can't blame these guys for really, really wanting to win her heart.

Still they may be going a little bit overboard.

Tom Hardy and Chris Pine star in the upcoming action romance film, "This Means War," playing CIA agents who discover that they're both dating Reese Witherspoon. They decide, of course, to not tell Witherspoon that they don't know each other and settle the matter with warheads, tranquilizer darts, explosions and well-timed rain. May the best man win, until, well, Witherspoon discovers the secret battle.

Chelsea Handler co-stars in the film as Witherspoon's pal and terrible adviser, convincing her to date both of them in the first place. The film, directed by McG, hits theaters around "Valentine's Day." How romantic! But hey, it is more heart that Hardy generally shows in his films, having starred as psycho criminal Charles Bronson, a broken MMA fighter and, next year, even more psycho criminal, Bane.
