Ben Stiller to quit acting to be full time director?

Los Angeles: Actor-director Ben Stiller enjoyed making his latest film `The Secret Life of Walter Mitty` so much that he may give up acting for directing.

Stiller praised the three years he worked on the film, set for Jan 3 release next year, as an "incredible experience" and "a gift".

"As a director, I feel much more freedom. There are just so many different kinds of movies that I can make that aren`t limited by who I am as an actor. I definitely could see myself just directing, for sure. That`s where I`d love to end up," Stiller said in a statement.

The "There`s Something About Mary" star says he preferred directing rather than acting in "Tropic Thunder" (2008), which also starred Robert Downey Jr.
