MOVIES Directors

Many actors say they couldn't imagine doing anything else for a job. However, with successful acting often comes fame and wealth, and with it the ability to try out some interesting new ideas. For these celebrities, that meant taking a seat in the director's chair.

Some of these actors have only directed once, others a handful of times. But there are a few actors and actresses who have become downright comfortable in the role. Dakota Johnson is the latest actress to make her directorial debut, working behind the scenes of the music video for Coldplay's 'Cry Cry Cry.'
