Jennifer Aniston and Ladies Unspool ‘Call Me Crazy’ in West Hollywood

Pic preemed on April 16 in WeHo

Lifetime’s “Call Me Crazy” may consist of five short films, but it’s anything but short when it comes to the long list of well-known thesps involved, many of whom showed up for the April 16 preem in WeHo.

Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Hudson, Brittany Snow, Lea Thompson and Melissa Leo were among those who walked the red carpet at the Pacific Design Center to help open the pic about mental illness.

“I think for big names, small names, ordinary people or famous people, mental illness doesn’t touch some or others of us more,” said Leo. “It’s a reality in all our lives, and I think that if something is on television about it, now we can talk about it.”

Pic’s Ken Baumann pointed out how much he enjoyed being a part of the mostly female ensemble.

“I’m always blown away by women in general because I’m a sucker for the ladies, but all the women in this project are amazing, especially Bryce Dallas Howard. She’s going to have a better career than her father I can already tell.”

Hudson showed up in a fitted leopard patterned outfit, ready to talk about another Jennifer.

“Jen Aniston is so fun. I love her and it was so cool to work with her. It must  be a Jennifer thing,” she noted.

Aniston, who is an exec producer on the film, was a late arrival on the carpet.
