In an interview to Grazia magazine, the Molly's Game actress expressed her desire to go behind the camera, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"Every day I feel like there is something new I never imagined I'd be doing. If anything, I think in the future I'm going to step back and I'm probably going to produce more. I may even direct," Chastain said.

"I'm interested in taking the light that has been shined on me and maybe shining it on some other people. I don't feel like I'm having to sacrifice anything because in reality this world is bigger than what my dream was," she added.
