Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence has announced her decision to direct movies. She joins the ranks of other celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Jodie Foster, and Ben Affleck, who have transitioned from actors to directors.

"I'd also like to direct a comedy," Jen told Entertainment Weekly. "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. 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," Jen continued. "If I had tried to do it earlier, I wouldn't have been ready. Now I actually feel ready."

We hope Jen will consider acting in her own movies too. We can't wait to see what she's got up her sleeve.
