“Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence says she would love to be a doctor if she couldn’t continue being an actress.

The 25-year-old star says she doesn’t think she’d have the “focus” to pass her assessments, reported Entertainment Tonight.

“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 actress previously revealed she would like to explore other realms of the film industry including directing.

“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.”
