Acting and screenwriting weren't enough.

Accomplished actress/screenwriter Jennifer Lawrence will now direct, too. J.Law officially signed on to her first project, she tells Entertainment Weekly: It's a comedy 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 aspiration has been long-standing...and secret:  "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," she says. Fellow directors Angelina Jolie and Elizabeth Banks would approve of that drive.
