It looks as though 2015 might not have gotten off to a good start for Jennifer Aniston. The Hollywood actress has failed to receive a Best Actress nomination for her role in Cake and now she is finally opening up about the disappointing news.
According to the Huffington Post on Friday, Aniston admits that while being snubbed is a little heartbreaking for her, she's been surprised by how many of her fans, friends and family were both shocked and even outraged that she missed out on the nomination.
She said, "I was amazing at how many messages of 'Shocked.' 'F**k 'em,' and 'Robbed,' I got. I found it quite endearing and flattering that I had so many people rooting for me. It was almost just as good to be the No. 1 snubbed than to be nominated. Now I don't have any pressure."
Aniston also revealed that she initially said yes to the project because she related to her on-screen character Claire Bennett when it came to having doubts about herself.
She explained, "I needed to do it so I could prove to myself that I was able to do it. So I wasn't sitting there frustrated that I wasn't getting certain parts because they knew something I didn't know -- which was that I couldn't do it."
The actress added, "She's dark because she's stuck. She's depressed and she's in extreme pain, physically and emotionally. She feels that if she gets unstuck and heals herself, gets off the drugs and the booze, goes to her physical therapy and gets better, she feels she will forget [that person]. She will forget her loss."
Cake is available in select theaters now and will open in theaters nationwide on January 23.
