Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore, and Alicia Keys share the cover of Glamour magazine’s October 2011 issue. Inside, the ladies discuss the short films they directed for Lifetime’s upcoming film project, Five, as well as how the film is designed to raise awareness for breast cancer.
Jennifer Aniston, on the project: “We were intrigued by the challenge of creating short stories that would defy audiences’ expectation of the subject. We wanted to balance the drama with humor and irreverence because that’s what’s helped our friends who’ve faced this get through their treatment.”
Demi Moore, on raising awareness: “I think that so often there is that ‘out of sight, out of mind’ feeling, like breast cancer is happening to other people, not you. Before this project came up, even I really didn’t want to pay attention. I feel that this came to me to make me pay attention.”
Alicia Keys, on directing her film, Lili: “After I read the scripts, I felt like this was something important, and I wanted to be a part of it. I chose Lili because she’s close to my age and I understood the family dynamic. I had an immediate idea of what I could bring to it.”
