Jennifer Aniston is drawing parallels between her strained relationship with her late mom and Aniston’s new role in “Dumplin'”.
Aniston, 49, talked to The Sunday Telegraph how she never quite measured up in Nancy Dow’s eyes.
“She was a model and she was all about presentation and what she looked like and what I looked like,” the Emmy Award-winning actress said. “I did not come out the model child she’s hoped for and it was something that really resonated with me.”
Aniston channelled the relationship with her mom into her character Rosie Dickson — a former beauty queen with a plus-size daughter — in Netflix’s upcoming musical comedy “Dumplin'”.
“This little girl just wanting to be loved by a mum that was too occupied with things that didn’t quite matter,” Aniston said of the upcoming movie.
“Dumplin'” premieres Dec. 7 on the popular streaming service.
