Leona Lewis wants to write a film and might even try her hand at acting in the future, she has revealed
Leona Lewis wants to write a film.
The singer - who has a song included on the soundtracks to new films 'Precious' and 'Avatar' respectively - is a huge movie fan and would love to pen a script in the future.
The 24-year-old singer said: "I love movies but I'm more into scriptwriting and the actual story and behind the scenes. But I wouldn't say no if it was the right thing."
Leona's current single 'Happy' is featured in 'Precious', which tells the story of an overweight, illiterate teenager who dreams of a better life.
The pop star was thrilled when the track got picked to be used in the movie, saying: "I'm just so proud of it because I wrote it, and for it to be associated with a film like 'Precious', which is about trying to overcome troubles and trials in your life, is amazing. I'm glad that someone got that message."
As Leona's career goes from strength-to-strength, she is attracting a host of star fans.
Rihanna - who was assaulted by her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown in February - is a huge admirer and was very upset to hear about Leona being attacked by a fan at a recent book signing.
The 'Russian Roulette' singer said: "I got so mad, like it was me. I couldn't believe it happened to her, of all people. It's so disappointing when people behave like that. Why? She's so sweet. She is just a beautiful, beautiful spirit. You don't want any bad things to happen to her."
