Jennifer Aniston really threw her weight behind her role in Cake. In order to play Claire Simmons, a woman who suffers chronic pain after a debilitating car accident, the Friends alum had to completely transform herself — and that meant, among other things, adding a few pounds to her famously fit frame.
Aniston, 45, spoke about her make-under at an American Cinematheque screening of the film in L.A. on Nov. 19, telling her host (and Horrible Bosses costar) Jason Bateman about the lengths to which she went to get into character. At one point during the audience Q&A portion of their chat, she was asked by a fan how she gained weight for the part.”I knew that was coming,” she replied. “I basically just didn’t work out for two-and-a-half months. I stopped working out and I stopped being as careful about my diet as I normally am. I was still healthy, but I’d allow more.”
