Jennifer Aniston might be most well known for starring in romantic films and light-hearted comedies, as well as for playing Rachel Green in long-running sitcom Friends (anyone remember that one?), but the 45-year-old actress could be poised for a new level of recognition if her film Cake is nominated at next year’s Oscars ceremony.
Aniston stars in Cake as a car crash survivor struggling with chronic pain and a drug addiction. The role sees the normally glamorous star become almost recognisable – and although the film is yet to be released in cinemas, it’s already surrounded by Oscar buzz. Buzz, which Aniston says is “very humbling… [and] flattering.”
“You can’t help but listen to it,” Aniston said at last night’s Horrible Bosses 2 premiere in Leicester Square. “It’s very humbling, it’s very flattering.”
“It makes you jitter from the inside out. It’s a lot of things but mainly I’m just happy that people are receiving the film. That makes me very happy – we’re very proud of it.”
Horrible Bosses 2 is in UK cinemas 28th November
