Reese Witherspoon consoled Jennifer Aniston over Oscar snub

Reese Witherspoon sent Jennifer Aniston a "sweet" message after she was snubbed for an Oscar nomination.
The 'Wild' star, 38 - who was given an Academy Award nod for Best Actress for her portrayal of Cheryl Strayed in the biographical drama - reached out to the 45-year-old actress to console her.

Jennifer shared to Access Hollywood: "[Reese] sent me such a sweet email, as did Julianne Moore.

"They are all amazing women, but you know, we're all rooting for each other and it doesn't take away the work that was done. So it's really, really nice."

Meanwhile, the 'Cake' star - who was hotly tipped for an Oscar nomination this year - recently joked that it was "almost just as good" to be snubbed for an Oscar than it would have been to be nominated.

She said previously: "I was amazed at how many messages of 'Shocked!' 'F**k 'em!' and 'Robbed!' I got.

"I found it quite endearing and flattering that I had so many people rooting for me. It was almost just as good to be number one snubbed than to be nominated. Now I don't have any pressure."

Jennifer - who took on the role of Claire Simmons in the drama - also admitted that she wanted to prove to herself that she could do it.

She added: "I needed to do it so I could prove to myself that I was able to do it. So I wasn't sitting there frustrated that I wasn't getting certain parts because they knew something I didn't know - which was that I couldn't do it...

"It's something I hadn't done before. To take on such a wonderfully layered, complex character."
