Jennifer plays Claire Simmons, an extremely volatile woman addicted to prescription painkillers . A member of her support group (played by Anna Kendrick) commits suicide and Claire becomes obsessed with her past life. She falls in love with her deceased support group member’s husband while confronting hallucinations of his dead wife.
It’s a role unlike Jen has ever tackled before and even in the few scenes showcased in the trailer, it’s obvious that the role really pushed her talent. It’s an extremely raw role; for most of the movie, Aniston is wearing no makeup, dirty clothes, and her hair is unkempt to say the least. Such a drastic departure from the Jennifer the world is used to seeing — but maybe that’s what will win her the gold?
