Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore & Alicia Keys Band Together for Breast Cancer Awareness
That’s a whole lot of gorgeous!
So, what are these ladies up to?
Each lady directed a short film for a series entitled Five for Lifetime. The series includes a number of unique stories about women whose lives have been impacted by breast cancer in one way or another. And considering October is breast cancer awareness month, this couldn’t have come at a better time!
The trio opened up about the project, babies, husbands and much more!
On wanting to bring the Five project to life…
Jennifer: “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. We wanted stories that were informative without being heavy-handed. Oh, and they needed to be brilliantly written. Other than that, our goals were small. [Laughs.]”
“I would say I couldn’t be in a relationship without equality, generosity, integrity, spirit, kindness and humor. And awesomeness.”
On not believing what you read in the tabloids…
“There’s not nearly as much stealing and obsessing and middle-of-the-night secret calls to ex-boyfriends and scheming and cheating [as they lead you to believe]. Most of it’s just bull–t, however entertaining.”
On the power of Twitter…
Demi: “I saw Twitter as this opportunity to connect with people and actually show a side of myself that is much lighter. And all of a sudden people were getting to know me, and I was connecting with people. At its core, Twitter is about sharing, and I think that in life we never feel better or more energized than when we’re giving to someone else.”
On what she gets giddy about…
“I’m an old-school romantic, so I get giddy when Ashton shows me another way of saying ‘I love you’—any little thought or gesture that’s playful or sweet. We leave Post-it notes for each other; some have been sticking up for five or six years! For me, it’s the small things.”
Alicia: “It was a time of transition. There were certain people [I was working with] who weren’t right. I had friends who weren’t right anymore. I was tired and I had overworked myself and burnt myself out. So I went to Egypt by myself. When I saw what was built there, it made me understand how powerful we are, that we can create anything. And I felt like I needed to create things that were timeless too.”
