Ben Stiller: Ditching Acting for Directing?

Hes been everything from a vapid male model to a heroin addict on screen, but Ben Stiller may hang up his acting hat in favor of exploring more projects as a director.

The Meet the Parents star told press that sitting at the helm of a film has proven to be quite a rewarding experience for him.

As a director I feel much more freedom. There are just so many different kinds of films that I can make that aren”t limited by who I am as an actor … I definitely could see myself just directing, for sure. That”s where I”d love to end up.”

Stiller added, “On The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, there weren”t a lot of days when I wasn”t acting and directing. But on Tropic Thunder the days when I wasn”t acting were my favorite days, because I got to just be there and stand behind the monitor and work with the actors.”
