Jennifer Aniston to direct, produce Lifetime movie

Jennifer Aniston and a few other famous females are teaming up to make a movie that makes a difference.

Singer Alicia Keys, actress Demi Moore and filmmaker Patty Jenkins will all join the former "Friends" star as directors on the Lifetime Original Movie "Project Five," the network has announced.

The movie is a collection of humorous and dramatic short films that explore the impact of breast cancer on people's lives, from the way diagnosis affects relationships to how those diagnosed perceive themselves.

"I'm a big fan of this amazing group of powerful and creative women, and we are thrilled to be working with them on 'Project Five,'" says Nancy Dubuc, president and general manager of Lifetime Networks. "It's an awesome feeling to be able to give them such a strong platform to do what they do best – entertain and tell great stories – so that we all educate viewers about breast cancer through these five films of courage, love, and hope."

Aniston, who is also producing the movie, adds that their "hope with 'Project Five' is to entertain, inform, and inspire dialogue, research, and prevention. Otherwise, our goals are small...We want these films to move people and empower those affected by breast cancer to stand tall through this challenge, which impacts ALL of our lives, no matter who we are."

    i think what jen and the other very talented ladies are doing is wonderful. i am a lifetime televiision fan and have been for years. i just love jen in any movie she plays in.i think she is not only a very talented actor,but i think she is a good person in general. i would like to say Thankyou to everyone involved with the making of this movie. people need to be more informed about this terrible disease. It doesn't just affect the unfortunate women that have it,it affects their famiky and friends too. I should know,I am a breast cancer survivor. I was diagnosed on september 24th,2009 and had a bilaterial masectomy on october 8th the same year.I went through 8 months of chemotherapy,lost every single hair on my body,and was sick all the time,but the worst part of it all was seeing the affect it had on my loved ones! So, Thankyou Jen for bringing more awareness to this horrible disease and may GOD BLESS YOU for caring !

  7. Really?

    Wow. I can't believe that everyone on this page is bashing Jennifer Aniston. Really? Who cares if you don't like her!? Who cares if you think she's ugly!? She's more beautiful, succesful, and popular than you'll ever hope to be.

    Toll Booth Operator.
    Monkey Cage Cleaner.
    Toilet Seat Cleaner.
    Pine Straw Placement Engineer.
    Fry Cook.
    Elevator Operator.

    Jenn hasnt much of a body or ta-tas for that matter. She might as well do this thing for ta-ta cancer as everything movie she "stars" in turns into a crapFest. Otherwise I would bang her mushy rump.

    My grandma said to me... her last words before slipping into a coma and passing away from breast cancer were... "Clear the cobwebs from your mind... Focus... Be Patient..." Well, there's a little more, but... the thing is... I, now am there... here with it.... life-threatening breast cancer. I even told my nurse the other day (after she asked what I do... or had... "what's my story?")... I just said, "well, who's going to hire a bald woman on chemo?..." There's a lot of negativity around Hollywood... I see. Just have to tuned out to it... esp. with this particular project. I have no doubt in my mind that it will be a fine success. All the best... God bless~

    WOW..this is for a great cause. Why so much negativity? You guys really need a life?
    Have you ever had or known someone that has had and or died from breast cancer. Anything to bring attention
    to it, regardless of one million people or 10 people watch it, as long as it makes an impact, and helps the cause, regardless of who is trying to do it, WE SHOULD BE GREATFULL and quit all the negative remarks. There is enough bitter and anger in this world..why create more!

      This anniston character is the last person I would want representing anything. She is an awful actor, wants everyone to feel sorry for her, poses on Mag covers in a farcical attempt to make Angie jealous, is probably as crappy in bed as she is out of bed and in general she is just a bubble-head. They coulda found a better person to handle this.

    Exactly, can't raise awareness on a bootleg network that nobody watches, not even it's target audience.

    • Just sayin

      The target audience is women and millions of women watch the Lifetime network. Since the percentage of women who get diagnosed with breast cancer is high, chances are that all of us will know someone who is diagnosed. Grandmother, mother, sister, daughter, wife, friend. Very sad.

      I think those numbers are debateable but whatever. Almost every woman I know actually destests that channel.

    Great!! I've loved all her movies. This is an innovative idea that will give hope and courage to millions of women suffering from breast cancer. Statistically, 1 in 8 woman are diagnosed, which is sadly a very high percentage.

    Sounds sweet, however, showing it on Lifetime may take SOME credibility away from it.

      "and now they [are] gonna promote her" Who's THEY??? And what "promotion"? Yeah, her supervisor called her in for her annual performance review and she got her promotion.

      Jennifer Aniston is financially independent, successfully works in the film industry and enjoys the rare position of having options, one being able to "choose" projects that interest her. She has worked behind the camera before...and was positively recognized for her work. She can do what she wants.

      Additionally, contrary to the opinion of less informed people who have been duped by a smear campaign, Jennifer has a social conscience and has (without fanfare) been involved in humanitarian projects long before she ever knew her as.hole former husband. Breast cancer research being one of them. This will be a labour of love, not a drive for the Box Office.

      @ Jeannnie.

      Figures an enabling fatty would stand up for JennifUR ANUSton. Just shows you are probably equally co-dependent, dysfunctional, stupid, enabling, pretentious, silly, etc. Please now go watch the Lifetime movie with your 5 gallon bucket of strawberry shortcake ice cream and SHUT UP!!

      wow, that is about as rude as you can get, what did she ever do to you to be such a jerk about this? All of you on here, do you sit around all day and find someone to be nasty to and pick on, what are you a bunch of bullies that are too old to harass school children so you pick on celebs? You people need to get a life and get off of the internet. Or take something to make you less mean and hateful about people. I love Jen and hope for the best for her. Too bad you guys are so mean and hateful.
