Jennifer Aniston


But what she really wants to do is direct. Again. And for a great cause.

Jennifer Aniston is leading a list of power players—a group which also includes Demi Moore and Alicia Keys—to direct one of a series of five short films that will together comprise Lifetime's Project Five.

So what's it all about?

The films will each depict the lives of a different woman battling breast cancer—as the name suggests, there will be five in all—and the anthology series will explore the impact of the disease on both the lives of the sufferers as well as those around them.

"Our hope with Project Five is to entertain, inform and inspire dialogue, research and prevention. Otherwise, our goals are small," said Aniston, who in addition to directing one of the stories will also executive produce the project.

Incidentally, this won't be her first time at the rodeo. Aniston previously directed a short film several years ago as part of Glamour magazine's Reel Moments series. Alongside Moore and Keys, Monster director Patty Jenkins will also direct one of the shorts, with the fifth and final director still to be announced.

"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," Aniston said.

In other words, don't watch these without a hanky handy.
