'Because she was a model, she was gorgeous, stunning. "She was very critical of me".

The 49-year-old actress spoke to The Sunday Telegraph about her new film Dumplin', which explores the relationship between a former pageant queen mum and her plus-size daughter, who enters the competition to protest beauty standards.

Jennifer Aniston is notoriously private on all matters involving her personal life despite her massive global fame.

She explained that she didn't come out the model child that her mom had hoped for and that they had a hard relationship.


She pointed out that the role has her caring way too much about things that don't really matter when the little girl only wants to be loved by her mom.

"I think he kind of fantasizes like a threesome with her", Parton said, and added another hilariously off-color comment that made Fallon fall out of his chair.

'I honestly still don't think of myself in that sort of light, which is fine.

The film's soundtrack features by Elle King, Mavis Staples, Miranda Lambert, Willa Amai, Rhonda Vincent, Alison Krauss, Macy Gray, and DOROTHY, as well as cameos by "Dumplin'" stars Danielle Macdonald and Jennifer Aniston.


Jennifer Aniston has revealed the bitter feelings she still has for her late mother Nancy Dow, two years after her death.

"My idea of beauty is, is what makes you feel attractive and what makes me feel lovely is the people around me, the life that I have", Aniston noted.

Dow, who acted in shows like The Beverly Hillbillies and The Wild Wild West, was married to Jack Melick from 1956 to 1961 and Aniston's father, soapstar John Aniston, from 1965 to 1980. "And maybe a good hair day". Aniston stopped speaking to her mother altogether, after Nancy published a book, From Mother and Daughter to Friends: A Memoir, back in 1999. And the actress recently revealed that some aspects in her real life helped her relate to the story even more.

In May 2016, Aniston told PEOPLE in a statement that Dow died at age 79.
