London: Actress Scarlett Johansson says she has bought the rights to several books in hopes of becoming a film director one day.

The 29-year-old BAFTA Award-winning actress said presently she is allured by different forms of art, reported Contactmusic.

"I want to get into directing and I will at some point. I already bought the rights to some books. I`m in a point at my life where I`m sure of my choices and I`m interested in so many different things. I love art and galleries and music," Johansson said.

Scarlett, who had also been a singer, formed an all-girl band entitled The One and Only Singles. The actress loved her group.

"I formed an all-girl band The One and Only Singles, it`s something that I`ve always loved. I had so many different interests growing up, I used to go around Greenwich Village, back when it wasn`t popular or cool, and just browse around in libraries and theatres, and then I started acting," she said.

"The only thing I regret is not having gone to college. The reason I live in New York, far from Hollywood, is because I need to feel a city around me," she added.
