Recently, Jennifer Aniston has admitted that her transformation into a stripper for her role in We’re the Millers required some strict eating habits. Getting a rockin’ body and toned abs doesn’t happen overnight, after all.
Aniston, 44, plays Rose O’Mallory, a cynical stripper, in her latest film. She finds herself recruited by a drug dealer (Jason Sudeikis) to pose as his wife. He has been coerced into agreeing to smuggle a truckload of marijuana out of Mexico back across the border. He decides that if he goes down to Mexico pretending to be the head of a typical happy vacationing family, it will be easier to trick the authorities, so he also gets two other people to agree to be their kids.
In We’re the Millers, out in theaters August 7, Jennifer Aniston has some very racy scenes, stripping down to just some lacy underwear. A video trailer of her in her bra and panties has been burning up YouTube lately. The rest of the trailer is pretty hilarious — it looks like it will be a very funny movie.
What diet regimen did Jennifer Aniston follow while preparing for her role as a stripper?
Jennifer Aniston followed a strict diet while preparing for her role as stripper Rose O’Mallory. She has said in an interview with “Access Hollywood” that she did eat on the day that she was filmed in her lingerie, but she didn’t cheat on her diet:
I did eat that day. I was on a very like, you know, greens and vegetables and lean proteins and kale.”
Aniston stayed strong, not even having the occasional Cheat Day while on her diet. Instead of reaching for a bag of potato chips when she felt like snacking, Aniston reahced for a delicious…hmm…bag of kale chips when she had a craving for a crunchy snack.
How did Aniston prevent herself from revealing a bit more of her private bits than she wanted to?
How does someone who plays a stripper but not in a X-Rated flick keep her private bits private?
According to Aniston, it was by making sure her lingerie was secured properly, and by doubling up on her undergarments:
I had no taping. I really just doubled my bras. I had a thong and then two pairs of underwear. Why I thought that was going to help protect anything is beyond me. Because, that’s just like ridiculous. … I was like, ‘No, I need three bras! I need three bras because God forbid that one, if it’s gonna escape!’”
In a Glamour Magazine interview, Aniston said that the character she plays, Rose, is the type of person who has low self-esteem and feels she doesn’t deserve much in life.
This is not at all how Jennifer Aniston feels like, herself, these days. She might have doubted herself and her abilities when she was younger, but not any longer.
Jennifer Aniston is in charge of her own happiness.
[Y]ou can undo a lot of things. If you’re not happy, you can become happy. Happiness is a choice. That’s the thing I really feel. Like with friends who refuse to get happy, who refuse to rise above the discomfort of where they’re at. … And once you meet yourself, and truly love yourself, then you attract that.”
Though Jennifer Aniston admits that her transformation into a stripper didn’t happen overnight, she has always stayed in relatively good shape since she’s been an actress, to get the choice roles she desired. It’s just that she worked that much harder to prepare for a role where she had to bare (almost) all.
As far the recent rumors that she and her boyfriend, Justin Theroux, are nudists, she says that they’re nude “when appropriate,” but she is not a practicing nudist:
That’s absolute B.S. … Imagine us with the chickens … we’re like collecting eggs naked?”
