We all know Jennifer Lawrence is an incredibly talented actress. But now the blonde beauty wants to try her hand behind the camera!

The 25-year-old admitted that she's been itching to direct ever since she first got bitten by the acting bug, explaining:

"I'd also 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."

In fact, it seems as though the Hunger Games star might finally get her shot! The Kentucky native revealed that she's already agreed to helm her first flick, saying:

"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."

The superstar explained that she hasn't yet had her directing debut because she never really felt she was up to the challenge before now, adding:

"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."

But this isn't the first we've heard about this new career choice!

Backstage at last year's Golden Globes, the Academy Award winner commented that her passion for directing first flared up when she was shooting her debut movie, but at the time she was afraid she wouldn't be good at it!

However, it seems Jen has finally mustered up the confidence to sit in the director's chair! We have total faith that J.Law can make a great movie!
