'Anything for an Oscar,' Says Jen Aniston in This Cake Trailer

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

It might be a stretch to call Jennifer Aniston a true method actress, but this trailer for her new Indie flick Cake does show the actress transformed. A makeup-free and heavier Jen stars as a recovering addict, and by the middle of the trailer you kind of forget that it's Rachel of Friends episodes past. In a long held Hollywood tradition (for better or for worse), a makeup-free look plus a weight gain is recipe for an Oscar nom, so we're calling it early. Jen, this is your year.
