Jennifer Aniston Portrays Chronic Pain Sufferer in New Movie 'Cake'

So, I just read on NPR that a new movie is coming out starring Jennifer Aniston portraying a character with chronic pain. Comes out late January--I am so excited/curious to see how accurately it is portrayed. Thrilled Hollywood is finally starting to shed light on this.

Here's a snippet from the NPR interview:
On how she played a character who is experiencing pain
It was a lot of studying the back, the leg, the neck. Pretty much every single part of her body was hurt, injured. And you really do start to manifest odd little, you know, cricks and ... pinches in your neck and lower back pain. ... Every week I would have some form of body work, just to make sure, you know, my body didn't kind of lock into any of that permanently. ...
Talking to women, or men, who are suffering from chronic pain on a daily basis — it is so unimaginable. I mean, I was so grateful for my body at the end of the day.
