Jennifer Aniston took on an uncharacteristically unglamorous role in her new movie Cake, challenging herself to play a woman trying to find some relief from the chronic pain caused by an accident that also left her with large scars on her face and leg. Offscreen, she took on additional challenges by executive producing the indie through the Echo Films banner she runs with producing partner Kristin Hahn.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter at the Cinema Society- and In Style-hosted screening of Cake in New York Sunday night, Aniston said it’s the smaller movies, in which she’s able to be involved throughout the filmmaking process, that truly excite her.
“Not that the big ones aren’t exciting, but you can get to be, for me, creatively involved [on] all levels, which I just find so utterly fulfilling,” she said, adding that she enjoyed helping put the cast and crew for the film together and being involved in the production process, which included trying to get others to support the film.
“There’s a lot of favors, sweet loving gives that people provide in order to help our little movie that could,” she said.
The film, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, is being distributed through production company Cinelou Films’ new distribution arm, Cinelou Releasing, which producer Mark Canton says they had long planned to create and was “in the best interests of the movie.”
Jennifer Aniston is one of those “Friends” that only seems to get better with age. Not only has she appeared in several comedies over the past few years (Horrible Bosses, We’re the Millers), she is being looked at as a possible Oscar nominee for her gritty, real role in Cake, a film that premiered at the Toronto Film Festival this week.
It was also recently announced that the 45-year-old will be the UK spokesperson for Glaceau Smartwater, a new bottled water brand manufactured by Coca-Cola. Aniston, already the spokesperson in the United States, will provide the voiceover for the TVC and feature in the out of home and digital campaign.
At the launch of Glaceau Smartwater, which happened at the end of August at the Dairy Art Centre in London, Australian pop singer Kylie Minogue was the front woman. However, Coca Cola’s marketing decided to stay with Aniston for their UK outreach.
The UK is the first European market to launch Glaceau Smartwater. Manufacturing will take place at the Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) factory in Morpeth, Northumberland, already home to Schweppes Abbey Well Water.
“Morpeth has a strong history of producing high quality water for consumers across GB and we are proud that the first bottles of glacéau smartwater to be introduced to the European market are being made here,” said Pete Smith, operations manager for CCE Morpeth. “At CCE we are committed to supporting local manufacturing and the investment in our staff, as well as new equipment at the site, reflects that dedication.”
Aniston is set to star in an ad which will show how Glaceau Smartwater is “inspired by clouds.”
Jennifer Aniston is eyeing a leading role in the upcoming New Line Cinema comedy Mean Moms, TheWrap reports. The film, to be directed by Beth McCarthy-Miller (“The Sound of Music Live!”), adapts Rosalind Wiseman’s nonfiction book “Queen Bee Moms And King Pin Dads,” a followup to her 2002 book “Queen Bees and Wannabees.” That book also served as the source material for the 2004 comedy Mean Girls.
Published in 2007, “Queen Bee Moms And King Pin Dads” is officially described as follows:
What happens to Queen Bees and Wannabes when they grow up?
Even the most well-adjusted moms and dads can experience peer pressure and conflicts with other adults that make them act like they’re back in seventh grade. In “Queen Bee Moms & Kingpin Dads,” Rosalind Wiseman gives us the tools to handle difficult situations involving teachers and other parents with grace.
“Queen Bee Moms & Kingpin Dads” is filled with the kind of true stories that made Wiseman’s New York Times bestselling book Queen Bees & Wannabes impossible to put down. There are tales of hardworking parents with whom any of us can identify, along with tales of outrageously bad parents—the kind we all have to reckon with. For instance, what do you do when parents donate a large sum of money to a school and their child is promptly transferred into the honors program–while your son with better grades doesn’t make the cut? What about the mother who helps her daughter compose poison-pen e-mails to yours? And what do you say to the parent-coach who screams at your child when the team is losing? Wiseman offers practical advice on avoiding the most common parenting “land mines” and useful scripts to help you navigate difficult but necessary conversations.
No stranger to New Line comedies, Aniston recently starred in We’re the Millers for the studio and is soon set to reprise her Horrible Bosses role for the upcoming sequel.
Mean Moms is being produced by Offspring Entertainment’s Jennifer Gibgot and Adam Shankman
