Christina Aguilera thinks her future lies in movies.

The 29-year-old star - who has made her film debut with new musical 'Burlesque' - would like to work on projects away from the music she is best known for as she has "caught" the acting bug.

She told BANG Showbiz: "I would like to do more film in the future, maybe a departure from the musicals. I've definitely caught the bug a little bit!"

The singer-and-actress - who is currently in the process of divorcing husband Jordan Bratman - recently revealed she is looking forward to turning 30 and entering a new "chapter" in her life.

She said: "In this business, people get really scared of age but I wear my wounds as something I'm proud of. You learn so much more about yourself and now I couldn't even imagine being 20 again. I really wouldn't want to be, to be honest, going through all the growing pains.

"Now I just feel that I've arrived at a place where I'm experiencing a lot of change for myself in a great way. I'm growing as a person and as a woman, and I think that this is the beginning of a new chapter for me."
