Jennifer Aniston couldn’t be happier for Dolly Parton after the queen of country music was honored using a Golden Globe nomination Thursday morning.
ET’s Nischelle Turner spoke with Aniston at the premiere of her completely new dramedy, Dumplin’, at the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on Thursday evening, as well as the actress lovingly reflected on Parton’s nomination for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture for the tune “Girl from the Movies.”
“I am so excited! She deserves This particular,” Aniston gushed. “This particular’s such a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful song as well as This particular’s definitely nice for our movie.”
Aniston, who both stars in Dumplin’ as well as served as a producer, personally tapped Parton to be a part of recording completely new songs for the Dumplin’ soundtrack, as well as even sang with the iconic country artist on “Push as well as Pull,” where Aniston provided backing vocals.
from the film, based on the book of the same name, Aniston plays a Rosie Dickson, a former beauty pageant queen whose plus-sized daughter, Willowdean (played by Danielle Macdonald), signs up for a beauty contest amid a struggle with body-image as well as self-esteem.
Author Julie Murphy, who penned the novel, has said from the past which her story was inspired by some of Parton’s songs, which will be why her involvement from the adaption will be so perfectly fitting, as well as why her nomination will be even more special.
ET also spoke with the 72-year-old “Jolene” singer at the star-studded premiere, where she admitted which she’s “real excited” about being recognized for the completely new song.
“I was over doing The Talk when they told us we got nominated,” Parton said, recalling how she heard the news. “We were all excited!”
Parton also dished on the long-rumored sequel to her 1980 comedy classic 9 to 5, explaining which the project will be moving forward.
“We’re gonna get the first script draft [of the screenplay] pretty soon,” she shared. “So This particular’s definitely gonna be a go.”
from the meantime, Aniston as well as Parton’s upcoming coming-of-age dramedy Dumplin’ premieres on Netflix as well as in select theaters Dec. 7.
