Adrien Brody wants to move into directing.
The 37-year-old actor - known for his roles in 'The Pianist', 'King Kong' and 'Predators' - says he would like to expand his CV to include more directorial work.
He said: "Acting is my day job and it's something I am very passionate about, but I have other interests.
"I've been thinking about directing, more so because of the freedom it gives you but in all fairness, my work as an actor is something I would like to do my entire life."
The US star also reveals he struggled to bulk up for his role in the upcoming sci-fi horror ‘Predators’, where he needed to put on 25lb in muscle for his role as soldier-turned-mercenary Royce.
He told the Scotsman newspaper: "I took it one day at a time. It takes a lot of work to change your physique but it's not just about doing exercise, it's about specific strength training and gaining mass, which is something I wasn't used to doing.
"Eating becomes a full-time job. I ate six huge meals a day, plus protein powders and supplements. Towards the end of training I was not allowed to eat carbs, sugar or drink alcohol.
"I remember, on the flight back from Hawaii after the shoot had wrapped, taking a bite of one of the crew's bagels. It was delicious. When you don't have bread for two months it's almost as hard as not having any alcohol."
