Cher wants more movie roles

November 17th, 2010

Cher wants to quit music for films.

The legendary singer - who won an Oscar for her performance in 'Moonstruck' in the late 1980s - wants more movie work when she wraps up her Las Vegas show in February 2011 because of the fun she had on new project 'Burlesque'.

She said: "There's the opportunity to go on a tour, and yet I'm not so sure that that's something I want to do immediately because I've been working for a long time.

"I did like working on this film so much that I really would like to do another film. I'm never going to do a lot of films."

Despite her love of 'Burlesque' and plans to work on more films, she admits getting herself to look so good for the cameras when shooting on-set was challenging.

She said: "There's a team of five dozen people and it takes them two hours.

"Once we started, I was totally there, but it was hard getting there. There was a lot of transitional time to have the character get to the place where you see her on screen. But, once I was there, I was always fabulous."

Prior to 'Burlesque', Cher's last big film was 1999's 'Tea with Mussolini, where she played Elsa Morganthal Strauss-Armistan.
