Aniston and Parton also chatted about their friendship which developed while working on "Dumplin", and Aniston revealed that she was such a huge fan of the country music legend that she named her dog Dolly.

Dumplin' on Netflix has viewers excited for Jennifer Aniston's presence on the streaming platform, but it's star Danielle Macdonald that will capture your heart in this comedy about an unlikely teen who enters a beauty pageant, following in her mother's (Aniston) footsteps.

"My husband is insane about her", she told the host. But this movie is more like Kinky Boots meets Amy Schumer's I Feel Pretty, and capitalizes on all the messages Netflix's teen rom-com Sierra Burgess is a Loser tried to get across, but without the catfishing. "See, I think he kinda fantasizes, like, a threesome with us".

Aniston was shocked when USA Today reached out for a reply.

"She always wanted to be there and support me even when she was off camera, so she would be in my eye-line which made it easier for me".

Dolly watched the recording session as Aniston and Macdonald did their best to add their singing voices to her tracks, encouraging them with her trademark positivity.

Regardless of other possible reasons, "it is mainly indicative of worries about how long growth in the US can remain so strong". The central bank's own large balance sheet may even be a culprit, by helping hold down long-term rates.

Aniston's role nicely suits her, although the pageant portion of the proceedings drags on too long.

Jennifer Aniston responded to Dolly Parton's shocking statement on "The Tonight Show". "I mean, that is a quote".

In the movie, which is based in a small Texan town, Jennifer plays former beauty queen Rosie Dickinson, the mother of main character Willowdean, who is also known as "Dumplin". "And then I laughed my (butt) off".

The Along Came Polly actress added to her glitzy ensemble with strappy heels and chandelier earrings for some added pizzazz.

Directed by Anne Fletcher, who previously directed films like Step Up, 27 Dresses, Hot Pursuit, and The Guilt Trip, Dumplin' is scheduled to be released on December 7, by Netflix.
