Kate Winslet: 'Male role would be ultimate challenge'

January 17th, 2012

Kate Winslet wants to play a man.

The 36-year-old actress - who earlier this week won a Golden Globe for her performance in TV mini-series 'Mildred Pierce' - is keep to take on a part of someone as the opposite gender, previously done by stars including Cate Blanchett and Glenn Close, because she believes it would be the "ultimate challenge".

She said: "I would like to one day play a man. That is something that I do know.

"I don't know what kind of a man, I don't know whether it will ever happen, but I do know I would be really interested because I think that would probably be the ultimate challenge."

Kate has previously claimed she would love to take on the part of the late Dame Elizabeth Taylor - a role both Angelina Jolie and Lindsey Lohan have coveted - and admits the possibility is a massive undertaking.

She added: "It's a massive undertaking for anybody who should be fortunate enough to get that part."
