Former Friends star Courteney Cox turned to filmmaker David Fincher to help her make her directorial debut.
The actress has directed a short film The Monday Before Thanksgiving, which premiered at the Los Angeles Shorts Fest 09 Friday, reported imdb.com.
Cox admits she is hoping to eventually quit acting to focus on directing movies full time and she has been taking advice from Fincher, the brains behind Seven, Fight Club and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
"I would love to direct more, it's perfect for my personality. I just like doing it, I think it's great," said the actress.
"I actually went to dinner with him (Fincher) and I said, 'David I need help', and we sat down and he gave me four hours of his time. He gave me some guidelines and thoughts and it really helped," she added.
