Jennifer Aniston: Directing Short Film about Breast Cancer

Jennifer Aniston is set to direct a short film about breast cancer for Lifetime’s Project Five, a five part anthology series.

The 42-year-old actress will join Alicia Keys, Demi Moore, and Monster’s Patty Jenkins in directing the project – a fifth director is taking part but hasn’t been announced just yet.

“Our hope with Project Five is to entertain, inform and inspire dialogue, research and prevention. Otherwise, our goals are small,” Jennifer told Us Weekly. “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.”

Last year, Jennifer told WWD that she hoped to direct in the near future.

“It’s getting to a time where creatively I want to turn in a different direction,” Jen shared.
