Jennifer Lawrence reveals directing ambition

JENNIFER Lawrence dreams of directing a comedy film.

The Oscar-winning actress is already among the most in-demand stars in Hollywood, but has revealed her ultimate ambition is to work behind the camera.

She said: "I'd like to direct a comedy.

"I have wanted to direct as long as I've wanted to act. I just don't talk about it because I'd rather just do it."

Despite her lofty status, the 25-year-old beauty admitted she's only recently gained the confidence to start directing.

She told Entertainment Weekly: "I've signed on to direct something called 'Project Delirium' - it's based on this article about mental warfare in the '60s, like an acid experiment gone terribly wrong.

"It's funny, I've wanted to direct since I was 16 and always thought I should start making steps towards that. If I had tried to do it earlier, I wouldn't have been ready. Now I actually feel ready."

The 'Hunger Games' star has previously revealed her plan to write a comedy movie with her showbiz pal Amy Schumer.

And earlier this week, Jennifer paid tribute to her friend and collaborator, describing her as "the s**t".
