Apatow, who has been acting since the age of seven told W Magazine that she'd one day love to write and direct as well as continuing to act.

"I did a short film last summer that I wrote and directed and acted in. So, that was the greatest thing ever, and hopefully I can do more of that," Apatow told the publication.
