Jennifer Aniston has reviewed how her character Rosie Dickson’s association with her girl in approaching film Dumplin’ made her think about her own, strained association with her late mother, Nancy Dow
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,” Aniston said.
“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.”
Her remarks resounded those made in 2015, when Aniston told the Hollywood Reporter: “She was reproachful of me. Since she was a model, she was exquisite, shocking. I wasn’t. I never was… she was likewise unforgiving. She would hold feelings of resentment that I simply found so trivial.” Aniston later said the pair were “all fine”.
