"I have no interest in doing that [directing]," Theron told E! at the premiere on Thursday night (7th May)."That bug has not bitten me yet."

The 39-year-old actress further explained that she is interested in any role, including producing and developing, but that directing is not for her. Theron produced the 2008 film Sleepwalking, in which she also starred. 

"I love producing. I love developing," Theron added. "But I like having a director around so I have somebody to blame. If I'm the boss than I'd have to blame myself."

If Theron does decide to turn her attention to directing, she will be in good company. Actresses such as Angelina Jolie, Jodie Foster, Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Aniston have all directed films and television series.
