London: Hollywood actor Mark Ruffalo who has turned director with `Sympathy For Delicious` and he is enjoying the experience so much that he plans to quit acting to spend more time behind the cameras.

The 43-year-old has given hits like `Zodiac` and `Shutter Island` but seems to have found a calling as a director, Contactmusic reported.

"It`s all I want to be doing. At this moment, I`m a little more turned on by the newness of directing," the actor said.

Despite enjoying the filmmaking, Ruffalo says he was "very nervous" on his first day of `Sympathy For Delicious`, which stars Orlando Bloom and Juliette Lewis.

"I was very nervous about it on the first day, I thought I don`t really know what I`m doing and how dare I think that I did.

"And then I walked out and I set up the shot and was like, `You know, I don`t like the shot, I don`t like the camera here. I want to move it over here.` And very quickly I found myself naturally directing the movie," Ruffalo said.
