Matt Smith wants to do "time travel" and Jennifer Lawrence before he dies.
The departing 'Doctor Who' star has opened up about his non-professional goals and - as well as a fling with the Hollywood star and becoming a real-life Time Lord - he also said he wants to "own a dog".
Asked by the Sunday Mirror newspaper's Notebook magazine what he wants to do before he dies, he joked: "Well, I'll start at Jennifer Lawrence.
"And then I think I'll actually conquer time travel. And I'd quite like to own a dog."
The actor also revealed he was close to playing a cruel prank on writer Steve Moffat's neighbour involving a prop monster from the show.
Matt admitted: "[He] has a real Weeping Angel, a proper big one, down at the bottom of his garden.
"We thought it might be funny to place it in his neighbour's garden and then I'd get dressed up in character and go and knock on the door, but we didn't do it because that would be weird."
The monsters stand up well against the show's history of villains and foes for The Doctor, and they are one of Matt's favourites to have acted with.
He explained: "To me, it's always been the Weeping Angels, because I think it's one of the cleverest monsters.
"Or maybe the Silence. And the Whisper Men - I thought they were brilliant and very scary."
