Jennifer Aniston: ‘Friends’ star relishes producer role

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jennifer Aniston may have played a terrible manager in the 2011 comedy “Horrible Bosses,” but in real life the actor-turned-director/producer says she’s a total “pushover” when in charge.

Miss Aniston executive-produced the upcoming television movie “Call Me Crazy: A Five Film,” a compilation of short films about mental illness premiering April 20 on Lifetime.

At the movie’s premiere Tuesday in Los Angeles, Miss Aniston admitted she’s a hardworking, no-nonsense boss who loves seeing a film come together from the ground up.

Though audiences are used to watching the “Friends” actress in big-budget blockbusters, Miss Aniston finds passion projects such as “Call Me Crazy” the most fulfilling.

“These are the things you wake up excited about,” she said.

The film’s star-studded cast includes Jennifer Hudson, Melissa Leo and Ashley Judd.
