Jake Gyllenhaal "can't wait" to become an action figure.

The 29-year-old actor plans to head straight to the shops as soon as his character from forthcoming movie 'Prince of Persia: Sands of Time' is immortalised in plastic.

He said: "A lot of people find it weird to have little action figures of themselves, but I think it's great. In fact it's awesome! I can't wait. I'm going to buy loads."

In the film - which is based on the popular video game series - Jake plays hero Dastan who teams up with Princess Tamina, played by Gemma Arterton, to find ancient artefact the Sands of Time in the adventure which is set in 6th Century Persia.

Jake isn't the only star happy to have been turned into an action figure.

Sienna Miller was delighted when her character in 'G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra', The Baroness, was made into a doll.

She said: "I'll have happy nieces and nephews. My Baroness doll is so flexible too. Her foot can even flex 360 degrees. Kids will be killing me though because I'm the baddie!"

However, her joy soon turned to horror when she realised the figurine showed off parts of her body she would rather keep private.

Sienna said: "I got measured in this pod so the doll is exactly to scale - every nook and cranny. They showed me my bald head before it was painted on and it was me! That was weird."
