Jennifer Aniston on Her Relationship with Her Mother: 'I Did Not Come Out the Model Child She'd Hoped For'

Jennifer Aniston gave a revealing interview about the parallels between her own relationship with her late mom, Nancy Dow, and the mother-daughter relationship in her upcoming Netflix film Dumplin’.

When asked by the Sunday Telegraph (via People) about if there are similarities between the two relationships, Jennifer responded, “Where do we start?”

“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,” Jennifer reportedly 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.”

“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,” she continued. “And maybe a good hair day.”
