Aniston is also one of the celebrity directors of a new movie that follows those affected by breast cancer.

“Five” is five short films that explore the impact of breast cancer on five very different women. Through an interconnected story arc, the films use humor and drama to focus on these women and their lives at different stages of their diagnoses. The stories look at the effect the disease has on relationships and the way the women perceive themselves while searching for strength, comfort, medical breakthroughs and ultimately a cure.

Jennifer joins Alicia Keys and Demi Moore in the project, and the film airs on Lifetime on October 10.
