Most movie stars spend a lot of time in the makeup chair.
They're naturally good-looking, sure, but harsh lighting and high-def lenses are kind to no one. Jennifer Aniston got the rare chance to throw her foundation to the wind in Cake — and wearing no makeup during filming, she revealed Saturday at Deadline's "Contenders" panel, was "so fabulous, and so dreamy and empowering and liberating."
"The only time I had to sit in the makeup chair was just for scars," she added. And indeed, we've gotten several glimpses of Jen's character, Claire Simmons, with a prominent mark on her face. In the drama, which is already drawing Oscar-buzz, Claire is in a support group for people who suffer from chronic pain. Presumably, the scar on her face is a lingering visible reminder of whatever accident or trauma she endured's the source of this pain.
