Jennifer Aniston: Will her lack of makeup in Cake score her an Oscar?

Men have been doing it for years — winning Oscars without elaborate hair and makeup. A few brave women have taken roles that require them to be at their facial worst, but they have been repaid handsomely with an Oscar. Will Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon join them?

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie won an Oscar for her portrayal of sociopath Lisa in Girl Interrupted. Jolie ditched the face paint to play a strung-out psycho and laughed all the way to the Oscar stage.

Charlize Theron

Charlize Theron got all chubby and ugh-lee (to the point of being unrecognizable) for her role in Monster. When you're as stunning as Theron, it takes a lot of guts to step in front of the camera without any makeup on. The risk was worth it — Theron's courage helped her score an Oscar.

Hilary Swank

Usually, Hilary Swank's facial features make the rest of the female population want to walk around with a bag over our heads. In Boys Don't Cry, not only did Swank go bare-faced, she cut off all her hair and altered her body to look like a man. Swank did cry a lot in the movie, but she smiled from ear to ear when she won her Oscar.

Nicole Kidman

On the red carpet, Nicole Kidman is flawless. The opposite was true when she played Virginia Woolf in The Hours. Mrs. Urban looked downright dreadful, but she won an Oscar for Best Actress in a Leading Role.

Jennifer Aniston

Rachel called and she wants her hair, makeup and impeccable wardrobe from the Gap back, please. This is not your older sister's Aniston. She is plain-faced and greasy-haired in her new movie Cake, and already she is creating a lot of Oscar buzz. We'll have to wait and see if Aniston gets to join this list for good.

Reese Witherspoon

Aniston's makeup-free Cake look is generating Oscar excitement, but Reese Witherspoon may give her a run for her money. Don't look now, but the impossibly cute and perky Witherspoon is rocking a naked face in her new movie Wild. So, Reese, are you ready to win another Oscar?
