Jennifer Aniston says she was a ‘disappointment’ to her mother
Jennifer Aniston has opened up about her relationship with her late mother, Nancy Dow. Jen has been doing press for an upcoming movie called Dumplin’ which documents a not-so healthy relationship between a pageant mother and her plus-size daughter, triggering memories for Jen.
She said “One of the reasons I really loved the mother-daughter aspect of it was because it was very similar in a way to what my mother, and our relationship, was. She was a model and she was all about presentation and what she looked like and what I looked like. I did not come out the model child she’d hoped for and it was something that really resonated with me, this little girl just wanting to be seen and wanting to be loved by a mum who was too occupied with things that didn’t quite matter.”
Jen also revealed HER idea of beauty, saying “My idea of beauty is, is what makes you feel beautiful and what makes me feel beautiful is the people around me, the life that I have. And maybe a good hair day.”
