Jennifer Aniston filming Cake
Is that really you, Jennifer Aniston
The typically sleek and stylish actress, 45, was spotted on the L.A. set of her upcoming comedy-drama Cake
on Tuesday sporting a dramatically unglamorous look, complete with baggy drawstring pants, no makeup, unstyled hair and a large scar on her right cheek.
The striking makeunder is for her role in the film, in which she plays a woman who becomes fascinated by the suicide of another woman (Anna Kendrick
) in her chronic-pain support group.
The offbeat role in Cake
, which she is also executive-producing, is "fantastic for her," an industry insider told PEOPLE earlier this year. "It's a complex character, and she'll strike that perfect balance of drama and dark comedy."
And she's still striking to her fiancé of nearly two years
, Justin Theroux, who dropped by set to visit his bride-to-be.
