Tom Hiddleston - Tom Hiddleston Keen To Direct

Tom Hiddleston plans to direct his own movies.

The 'War Horse' actor has had several ideas for writing his own screenplays, and is keen to expand his career to involve more work behind-the-scenes in the future.

He said: "I keep having these ideas for films that I'd like to make myself, so I'm going to start writing and directing more."

The 30-year-old British star has risen to prominence in recent years after appearing in the likes of 'Thor' and 'Midnight In Paris', and he realised he had become a household name when he was recognised by Hollywood actor Billy Crystal.

Tom added in an interview with Shortlist magazine: "'Thor' and 'Midnight In Paris' came out in America within about two days of each other but I was on the set of 'The Avengers' in Albuquerque and missed all the hype.

"Then when I eventually went to see 'Midnight In Paris' at this Los Angeles cinema that I visit every time there - as a punter, totally incognito - and I got recognised by Billy Crystal.

"It was this crazy, surreal moment - Billy Crystal coming up to me saying, 'Did I just see you in that movie?' I guess that was a turning point when I thought, 'Oh, this is going well.' "
