Arianna Huffington Celebrates Jennifer Aniston's "Cake" Role

  • Written by 

Media mogul Arianna Huffington hosted a luncheon in honor of Jennifer Aniston's role in Cake in her Los Angeles home.

The Greek-American actress has received great reviews for her role as Claire in the indie movie and is up for a plethora of awards. Aniston's performance was extremely well received at the Toronto Film Festival, while many in the industry are speculating that she will win a major award, such as an Oscar or Academy Award.  The movie will be released on January 23rd.

The Hellenic Hollywood entertainer 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 actress 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."

Many of Aniston's friends were present at the lunch including fiance Justin Theroux, close friend and comedian Chelsea Handler, and fellow Greek actress Nia Vardalos.
