Doctor Who: JLaw has medical ambitions

Jennifer Lawrence wants to be a doctor.

The Hunger Games star has revealed she'd be keen to become a medical professional if she hadn't made it an actress but joked she would have to operate illegally as she doesn't think she'd have the "focus" to pass her assessments.

She is quoted by Entertainment Tonight as saying: "I would like to say doctor but I know I don't have the focus for it, so I'd probably be like an out-of-work doctor trying to illegally operate on people."

Meanwhile, the 25-year-old actress previously revealed she would like to explore other realms of the film industry including directing.

She shared: "I'd like to direct a comedy. I have wanted to direct as long as I've wanted to act. I just don't talk about it because I'd rather just do it.

"I've signed on to direct something called Project Delirium – it's based on this article about mental warfare in the '60s, like an acid experiment gone terribly wrong. It's funny, I've wanted to direct since I was 16 and always thought I should start making steps towards that. If I had tried to do it earlier, I wouldn't have been ready. Now I actually feel ready."
