Kylie Minogue wants to give acting another go

'I SHOULD Be So Lucky' singer Kylie Minogue has admitted she would love to make a return to acting after not being "particularly proud" of her earlier big screen roles.

The longtime hitmaker originally got her break on the small screen in Neighbours but failed to make her mark in Hollywood, and she would love to land some roles to boost her profile in the US.

She told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "I get such a thrill out of doing that as it takes me back to where I started. It is a completely different challenge.

"And it is nice to not be Kylie for a while. I truly love acting. I guess I get to do some acting in song videos - even putting on a happy face when you don't feel that way."

While Kylie has attempted a big screen switch before - including main roles in box office flops like 'The Delinquents' and 'Street Fighter' - she doesn't feel she has given herself something to be "particularly proud of".

She said: "I have had roles here and there in various films, but nothing much I am particularly proud of.

"Acting is where I started when I was 11 years old, and as we all know 'Neighbours' is the show that I became a household name in. Then when I did 'Delinquents' that was such an exciting new world.

"I knew I was green and this was a learning ground but I did think that would be the road I would take - and it just transpired that it wasn't."
