She has described it as the role of a lifetime. And now, Jennifer Aniston has revealed that she had to do "everything possible" to get her "hat in the ring" for the lead role in Cake.

Aniston, 45, has won critical acclaim for the exacting role even though she did not win an Oscar nomination.

Speaking to website Collider, the actor said: "Cake tops my list of experiences, and I've had some extraordinary experiences. It wasn't a knock-down, drag-out fight, but it was offered to other actresses that you would expect a part like that would go to."

"It just really grabbed me hard, and I just knew that I wanted to do everything I possibly could to just get my hat in the ring. That moment happened when I could sit in the room with (director) Daniel (Barnz), and I said, 'I will take no shortcuts. I will go to the moon and back. I know what this requires.' And god love him," she added.

She says the role was offered to other actors before she fought to put herself in contention for the role of Claire Bennett, reports Aniston has already picked up Best Actress nominations at the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild for her performance in the film.
