On the face of it, Jennifer Aniston looked pretty swell at the premiere of her new Lifetime movie Call Me Crazy in Los Angeles this week. Wearing a simple black romper and her hair tied back in a ponytail, the Wanderlust star, 44, managed to stand out from the crowd with subtle elegance. But then there were the cupping marks.

The actress failed to hide a pattern of circular marls on her back, which People magazine said were probably the result of cupping, a Chinese form of alternative medicine designed to promote circulation. 'Cupping' normally uses small glass bulbs that are heated and placed on the skin. Sounds terrible right? Well,  it often leaves red marks on the skin for several days, though encourages better circulation of blood. 

While the history of cupping dates back thousands of years, the first uses are found in the teachings of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. Other famous fans of the treatment are said to include Gwyneth Paltrow, which isn't exactly a surprise now is it?

Anyway, apart from the cupping marks, Aniston looked great at the premiere of the movie, which is made up of five short films about mental illness. Jennifer Hudson, Melissa Leo, Octavia Spencer, Sarah Hyland and Melanie Griffith make up the all-star cast.

Call Me Crazy airs on the Lifetime channel on Sunday, April 20, 2013.
