Jennifer Aniston is said to be eyeing an Oscar nomination for her role in Cake at the upcoming awards ceremony in Los Angeles in February 2015.
“Winning an Oscar has been a dream of Jen’s, and she knew Cake could finally be her ticket,” said a source close to the 45-year-old beauty, who is engaged to actor Justin Theroux, reports contactmusic.com.
The former Friends star, who has been nominated for Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe awards for her role in the movie, has revamped her wardrobe as the awards season approaches.
“Jen is buzzing. Even a nomination would be rewarding for her on so many levels! She’s truly on the campaign trail now, which is why she’s been buttoning up, choosing demure outfits and even wearing glasses,” the source added.
The actress underwent a make-under to help her embody the role of Claire Simmons, a woman who suffers a car crash that leaves her with scars all over her body, in the film, and hopes it will help her take her career in a new direction. The source told America’s OK! magazine: ‘‘Jen was initially nervous about looking so raw on camera. But after really digging into the character, she had a lot of fun.’’
