Natalie Portman to Direct?

What is it about actresses? Natalie Portman says she wants to direct a movie:

Hollywood actress Natalie Portman has expressed interest in directing a film version of Israeli writer Amos Oz's internationally acclaimed autobiography, a production spokesman said on Thursday.

Portman, 25, who is best known for her starring roles in the recent Star Wars trilogy, may also act in "A Tale of Love and Darkness" if it is brought to the big screen, Jerusalem Capital Studios spokesman Danny Levy told Reuters.

"JCS has met with Portman to discuss the possibility of her participating in and directing a film version of the book," he said.

"A Tale of Love and Darkness" describes Oz's upbringing in Jerusalem amid the fighting during which the Jewish state was founded. Israeli media said Portman was interested in playing Oz's mother, who committed suicide when the author was a youth.

Don't people realise that having a pretty face, even being a good actor, doesn't then mean that you'll be a good director?
