Philip Seymour Hoffman found directorial debut 'tough' yet 'satisfying'

August 12, 2011 - Washington

Philip Seymour Hoffman has revealed that although he found directing 'Jack Goes Boating' "tough", he, at the same time, found it to be "satisfying".

Hoffman's directorial debut movie is the big screen adaptation of an off-Broadway hit under the same name.

"I enjoyed it immensely, actually. It was very satisfying. But acting, also, was tough," Contactmusic quoted him as telling Film magazine.

"I don't think I'd do that again. It was a necessity at the time but I like being directed and you don't really direct yourself," he added.

The 44-year-old American actor, who had an enjoyable experience directing, claims he was able to draw on his experience from working with other directors in the past.
