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.
