It looks like what Steven Spielberg can do, Jennifer Aniston is going to try and do better.

The Hollywood actress has revealed that she intends to explore other areas of filmmaking by becoming a director.

Speaking E! News, Aniston, who missed out on the Best Actress Oscar nomination for her performance in Cake, said she hoped to take the helm for a feature-length film.

"We're going to make it happen, but I have a lot of time. We're just beginning," she told E! News.

Although Aniston has yet to play in the big leagues, she does have some directing experience under her belt. She was behind the camera for 2006â€ēs short film Room 10, as well as a segment in Five, a TV movie about breast cancer in 2011. She was also an executive producer for four of her films including 2010 comedy The Switch.

The 45-year-old former Friends star had been set to make her directional debut on the silver screen two years ago but the project fell through.

"A job that I committed to that we didn't think was going to happen ended up happening and so it was heartbreaking," she admitted.

Aniston is not the only actress making moves behind the scenes.

In 2014, her love rival Angelina Jolie made her directorial debut with Unbroken, the Oscar nominated film about Olympic track star-turned-prisoner of war Louis Zamperini.

The movie, adapted from Laura Hillenbrand's book, stars Jack O'Connell, Domhnall Gleeson, Finn Wittrock, Garrett Hedlund, John Magaro, Alex Russell and Japanese actor Miyavi.
