Jennifer Aniston talks Oscars Cake snub

Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston has said she doesn't feel too bad about being snubbed for the Oscar nominations, because she is flattered that so many people were surprised she didn't make the cut.

The former Friends actress stars in yet-to-be-released drama Cake as a woman living with chronic pain who becomes fascinated by the suicide of a woman from her support group. Jennifer was widely expected to be nominated in the best actress category at the Academy Awards but did not make the shortlist.

Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show she said: "I'm the number one snubbed! That's the silver lining!

"It hasn't even come out. That's the crazy thing - we're so shocked and amazed that we have had this much love for a movie that hasn't even been released yet."

Jennifer also revealed that many people suffering from the same condition as her character had spoken to her about their own stories.

She said: "It's unbelievable how much positivity it's bringing to those who are kind of silently suffering. It's a beautiful, hopeful movie."

Cake is released in UK cinemas on February 20.
