The athlete, who has picked up two gold medals, two silvers and a bronze in this year's London Olympic Games, told E! Online that he is looking forward to having a "big American burger" when he returns to the States.
"I think acting would be fun," he continued. "I think I would be good at it."
However, Lochte also told E! Online that he is hoping to compete in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
"I'm definitely going another four years," he said. "You can count on me being in Rio, and you know what? If I'm still having fun in the sport then I'm gonna go for another four years."
Lochte, who has confessed that he peed in the Olympic pool, recently denied his mother's claims that he "goes out on one-night-stands".
