Aniston: I rocked mum's 70s look

Jennifer Aniston has revealed that she took inspiration from her mum's 70s wardrobe for her starring role in Life Of Crime.

The Friends actress stars in the period-set adaptation of Elmore Leonard's novel The Switch and told Collider what it had been like to get into character with the wardrobe.

She said: "It's a tough look. I mean, it was awesome for the time and a lot of fun to wear all of that polyester and the handkerchiefs around the neck. My favorite piece of my wardrobe was the sunglasses.

"Basically, I looked like my mom. I pulled out a lot of her old pictures and just tried to rock the old Nancy Aniston 70s look."

Jennifer has a few scenes in the film where she is roughed up by the other characters and at one point is put in a ski mask with the eyes taped over.

She said of the scenes: "I didn't prepare. I just let them hurt me. That's the best way to get a real reaction it turns out. And the ski mask was kind of great. It's weird. It's a lot to build to try to convey emotion when everything that usually does is covered up. It was really fun for me.

"We worked a lot on that ski mask. It was lined with silk so we didn't get some rashes on the old faccia. It was a very well-made ski mask."

She added that she would like to turn her hand to directing, but knew which types of film she wouldn't go for: "Well, I wouldn't say like horror films or like a Matrix kind of thing.

"I don't think you'd like to see my directorial version of that. Everyone would somehow be really bad at it. Maybe that'd be fun. I love the human experience. I love human beings and behaviour and relationships, and it will probably have something to do with that."

Life Of Crime is released in cinemas on September 5.
