Kylie Minogue wants to convince people she's a good actress.

The Australian pop star - who appears in Leos Carax's new movie 'Holy Motors' - knows it is difficult for people to think of her away from her music career but her latest role has given her the confidence to take on further big screen projects in the future.

She said: ''I've got a lot of work to do before people stop thinking: 'Oh, what's Kylie Minogue doing in a film?'

''But this has made me feel it's possible to do something beautiful and challenging, and to be believable as someone else.''

The 44-year-old star - who first shot to fame appearing in Australian soap 'Neighbours' in 1986 and has appeared in movies including 'The Delinquents' and 'Moulin Rouge! - has a ''deep longing'' to do more acting but admits some of her previous work has not been very successful.

She explained to The Guardian newspaper: ''I'd definitely love to do more acting. My heart cries out for it; it's such a deep longing. For years I've been waiting to get back into it and it just hasn't happened.

''Or, it has happened and it was so disastrous that I thought: 'Oh, it's just not for me.' ''
