Kylie Minogue thinks making a film has been the most incredible experience of her life.

The singer - who stars in Leos Carax-nominated French movie 'Holy Motors', admitted that it surpasses any of her musical career highlights.

She told The Independent newspaper: ''I'm sure I'm going to wake up and find out it's been a dream. It's been the most incredible experience - making the film, meeting Leos. It's mind-blowing.

''I've experienced quite a lot in my life but this is something else. And even though I just came off the biggest tour of my life, I'd put this part as a highlight of my career.''

Kylie was also shocked that the motion picture played at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival.

She said: ''I had no idea that it would ever show at Cannes, though. It was a really Leftfield decision for me to take the part. I knew that Leos was adored in France, that there was excitement he was making a film again, but he was not on my radar at all.''

In fact, Kylie was not on Leos' radar either.

She admitted: ''Leos didn't have any idea who I was, he had heard nothing I'd done except that duet with Nick [Cave]. I found that all very refreshing. I was suggested to him by our mutual friend, [White Material director] Claire Denis and we met in Paris.

''I said to him, 'you're either very brave or very crazy to give me this role'. And just like that - he hired me.''
