Thursday, Aug 6, 2009

Actress Courteney Cox has donned the director’s hat, and turned to moviemaker David Fincher for some advice.

The actress made her directorial debut with short film The Monday Before Thanksgiving, which premiered at the Los Angeles Shorts Fest 09 on July 24.

The former ‘Friends’ star admits she is hoping to eventually quit acting to focus on directing movies full time, and she has been taking advice from Fincher, who has helmed films like Seven, Fight Club and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

“I would love to direct more, it’s perfect for my personality. I just like doing it, I think it’s great,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

“I actually went to dinner with him (Fincher) and I said, ‘David I need help’, and we sat down and he gave me four hours of his time.

“He gave me some guidelines and thoughts and it really helped,” she added.
