Jennifer Hudson Recounts ‘Call Me Crazy’ Role, Lifetime Premiere

Jennifer Hudson says her forthcoming role in Lifetime's Five feature film, "Call Me Crazy," is serious.

Appearing on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Monday night, Hudson talked about the role and post-traumatic stress disorder.

"Call Me Crazy is based on mental illnesses. I play Maggie. She is a soldier who was attacked by one of her sergeants. She comes home and her whole life falls apart because she has a nervous breakdown from PTSD," said Hudson.

As previously reported, "Call Me Crazy" also stars Octavia Spencer and Chelsea Handler and it premieres this Saturday, April 20 at 8 p.m. on Lifetime.
