Jennifer Aniston didn’t receive an Oscar nomination for her role in the independent drama Cake, but she didn’t let it get her down. She arrived at the Good Morning America studios in Times Square on Wednesday with a big smile on her face, indicating that she has moved past the disappointment. Aniston looked great in a business-chic outfit and even waved cheekily to fans as she went inside.
The actress known for her role in the popular TV show Friends expressed her delight that people were showing more interest in her acting skills in the serious film Cake, directed by Daniel Barnz, rather than her engagement to Justin Theroux. This marks a departure from her usual genre of romantic comedy films.
She expressed that the film ignites a meaningful conversation, which is exactly what they intended to achieve through their production. While comedies are enjoyed as a means to escape reality and have a good laugh, this movie holds significant value to her.
