Jennifer Aniston has revealed that she “burst into tears” after she recorded a song with Dolly Parton.
The actress stars in the new Netflix film, Dumplin’, where she acts as a southern former beauty queen, whose plus-size daughter signs up for a pageant in protest, but ends up changing the pageant and their hometown in Texas.
The Friends star took on a new challenge for the role, as she had to sing and even recorded Push and Pull with Dolly Parton for the programme.
The 49-year-old spoke to Entertainment Tonight about her recording experience: “I was so nervous but I sang through it and then got my voice. I literally couldn’t have a squeak come out, and then when we finished, I remembered, I just burst into tears.”
“It was terrifying and fun and all of it… it was great. I was fearless, yes, or fearful, depending on how you look at it. But I had Dolly and Linda Perry there, who were just patient and wonderful.”
Jennifer also revealed she has always been able to do accents, but feared if she was doing a southern accent correctly: “I love picking up on accents anyway. It’s something I’ve always been able to do a little, and that one in particular.”
“But I also have a fantastic dialect coach who just sort of would give me little tips here and there. The toughest thing is not knowing if you got it right.”
Dumplin’ will be released on Netflix on 7th December, watch the trailer below.
