Kylie Minogue finds acting liberating.
The 45-year-old star appeared alongside Nick Cave in the fantasy drama 'Holy Motors' in 2012 and is set to reunite with the musician this year for '20,000 Days on Earth', and she's admitted she gets a thrill from acting because she can pretend to be someone else.
She told Digital Spy: "'Holy Motors' was great ... It was just such a nice change to step out of ... it's kind of a weird thing when your career is being a heightened, more glamorous version of yourself.
"I'm Kylie with my family and I'm Kylie with the lights on in my other work. So to just be a different character is challenging and liberating."
The 'Cant Get You Out of My Head' hitmaker released her new album 'Kiss Me Once' earlier this week and has revealed '20,000 Days on Earth' may reveal a side of her people don't know about.
Speaking about her scene in the documentary, she added: "We have a scene where he's driving me, I'm in the backseat of the car and he's chauffeuring me around Brighton, his current home town, and really it wasn't scripted we just talked.
"Nick has this ability to make me very honest and say things that I might not say with other people."
