Michelle Williams isn't entirely satisfied with her career.

Despite being an Academy Award nominee, the 31-year-old My Week With Marilyn actress tells Hobo Magazine she recently had a career-related epiphany while watching a live stage show in Paris.

"I often dream of quitting acting. Walking away and becoming a laundress or a sous chef, or maybe writing other people's love letters for a living," Williams reveals.

"Clearly, I don't like to be in charge," she explains. "And thinking of quitting is just keeping going in disguise."

Though Williams isn't actually planning to leave show biz behind — she's currently filming Oz: The Great and Powerful with Mila Kunis, James Franco and Rachel Weisz — the actress does admit that she's ready for a new challenge.

"When you have options, anything is bearable. It's when a situation is inescapable that it becomes hell," Williams tells Hobo Magazine. "It seems to me that as soon as you get good at something, it is a sure sign that it is about to walk out of your life because it ceases to hold your mind and creative energy hostage."
