If part of an Executive Producer's job is to put a strong cast together...then Jennifer Aniston should received high marks for her latest project, "Call Me Crazy: A Five Film." The film, which had its world premiere in Los Angeles on Tuesday night (April 16), brings together an all-star ensemble cast with five interwoven stories about how everlasting bonds of love and family can deal with the challenges of mental illness. SOUNDBITE Jennifer Aniston saying (English): "I'm just saying, we are lucky to get the cast that we got. We went through our 'dream team' and we just had all the stars were aligned and people were willing and excited to jump on board, just because they wanted to be a part of this topic of mental illness and remove the stigma and remove the shame." "Call Me Crazy" stars are Jennifer Hudson, Octavia Spencer, Melissa Leo and Brittany Snow, among many others. Directed by Laura Dern, Bonnie Hunt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Ashley Judd, the film plays out through five shorts named after each title character -- Lucy, Eddie, Allison, Grace and Maggie - detailing powerful relationships built on hope and triumph and raising a new understanding of what happens when a loved one struggles with mental illness. "Call Me Crazy: A Five Film" will be air on the Lifetime television network on Saturday (April 20).
