Jennifer Lawrence has an Oscar and is one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars. But next up on her wish list? “I’d also like to direct a comedy,” she says. “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.”

Lawrence already has her eye on a potential project. “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 25-year-old star had previously discussed her intentions to step behind the camera back in 2014, backstage at the Golden Globes. “My passion for directing happened at the same time it did for acting on my first movie,” Lawrence said at the time. “So I would love to direct – but I don’t want to suck.”
