Watch: Jennifer Aniston Gives Alcoholic Gifts in ‘Cake’ Clip

Watch: Jennifer Aniston Gives Alcoholic Gifts in 'Cake' Clip

Jennifer Aniston earned some of the best reviews of her career at the Toronto International Film Festival over a month ago for her raw performance in Daniel Barnz’s dark comedy “Cake.” The film stars the “Friends” actress as Claire Simmons, a heavily scarred woman suffering from chronic pain and coping with a recent tragedy by shutting everyone close to her out of her life.

In an exclusive new clip from the film, courtesy of IMBD, a very low-key Aniston bestows co-star Felicity Huffman with an alcoholic gift. Anyone with fond memories of the dolled up, attention-grabbing Aniston will surely get a run for their money in what looks like the most subdued and lived-in performance of the actress’ career thus far.
