Jennifer Aniston talks relationship with late mom

Jennifer Aniston attends a photocall in Beverly Hills on Oct. 22, 2018. In the new movie "Dumplin'," which debuts on Netflix on Dec. 7, Jennifer Aniston plays a former beauty queen mom who's obsessed with appearances, including that of her plus-size daughter, who enters a pageant. In a new interview with Australia's The Sunday Telegraph, Daily Mail Australia and Radar Online both report, Jen draws parallels between the onscreen story and her own relationship with late mother Nancy Dow.

"She was a model and she was all about presentation and what she looked like and what I looked like," Jen said of Nancy, who died in 2016 at 79 following a series of strokes that left her in decline. I did not come out the model child she'[d] hoped for and it was something that really resonated with me," Jen told the paper. "This little girl just wanting to be loved by a [mom] that was too occupied with things that didn't quite matter."

Nancy and Jen were estranged for years in part because Nancy wrote a book about their relationship, 1999's "From Mother to Daughter to Friends: A Memoir." In 2015, Jen opened up about Nancy, with whom she eventually reconciled -- though their relationship reportedly remained strained -- in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
