Jennifer Aniston has received great reviews for her role as Claire in the upcoming indie move Cake.
The Greek-American actress' performance was extremely well received at the Toronto Film Festival last month, while many are speculating that she will win a major award, such as an Oscar or Academy Award. As reported by Deadline, the film will be released for one week in December so it can be accepted by the Academy Awards and holds a general release date this January.
The Hellenic Hollywood actress received an extreme makeover for her upcoming role in Cake and stars as a grieving mother who is enduring extreme back pain, as a result of a fatal car accident. The 45-year-old entertainer was seen with a dominant facial scar on her right cheek, dark hair and baggy attire on the movie set. It's a different look for the spunky fresh faced and blond leading lady.
Cake costars Sam Worthington, Anna Kendrick and Chris Messina. According to a press release, the Greek-American plays, "...the acerbic, hilarious Claire Simmons, a woman who becomes fascinated by the suicide of Nina, a woman in her chronic pain support class. As she uncovers the details of Nina's suicide and develops a poignant relationship with Nina's husband, Claire also grapples with her own very raw personal tragedy."
