For the movie Cake, how did Jennifer Aniston prepare to play a chronic pain sufferer?

To get into character for her new film Cake, Jennifer Aniston had to ditch her healthy lifestyle. Jennifer is known for her lean diet and trim figure. Jennifer’s character, Claire Simmons, suffers chronic pain after a car accident that left her scarred. Aniston quit exercising and eating as well as she usually does.

Us Magazine reported that Jennifer spoke about gaining weight for the movie at the American Cinematheque screening of Cake. Aniston and host Jason Bateman talked about the difficulties of her transformation. Not only did she gain weight, but Jennifer wore no makeup except for the character’s scars and dark under eye circles.

Manipulating your appearance is one of the most difficult things for an actor to do.  If successful, the actor can improve their role by molding themselves into character.  kudos to Jennifer Aniston for having the chops to do that!

Matthew  Mcconaughey lost weight for the Dallas Buyers club.  Here is my take on it:  How do actors get so lean for certain movies?
