There are many occasions in which a Hollywood actor or actress goes to the other side of the cameras and start directing (This phenomenon also occurs in Spain, Mario Casas being the last to do so). Furthermore, the fame they have as performers usually helps their directing debuts get some impact.
Some even achieve great numbers at the box office and critics, such as A star has been born (2018) directed by a Bradley Cooper who has presented his second feature film, Teacher (2023), at the Venice Film Festival. Although there are times when these projects do not have a great study behind and often go unnoticed, as is the case of The second chance (2022), a dramatic comedy in which two characters from one of the sitcoms best known meet again.
