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.

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 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, Aniston finds passion projects like "Call Me Crazy" most-fulfilling.

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

The film's star-studded cast and directors include Jennifer Hudson, Melissa Leo and Ashley Judd.
