Nicole Kidman wants to work with Michael Haneke.
The 'Grace of Monaco' star was awestruck by the Austrian director's Oscar-winning drama, 'Amour', and says he is top of her wish list to work with in future.
She added: "I'm offered unusual roles and I'm usually offered things with interesting directors. At this stage in my career, I don't want to get safe."
The 46-year-old actress' career has spanned over 30 years and she hopes to keep the momentum going until she's well into her old age.
She said: "You can give the greatest performances of your life in your 70s and 80s. If you manage to get to that age. They say, 'Oh, a woman in her 40s wont work', but that's not true.
"There may be fewer roles, but there's certainly great material because human beings grow old. As long as there are people willing to make movies about that subject matter, there will be roles."
Nicole - who was previously married to Tom Cruise isn't enamoured with the Hollywood lifestyle and prefers to spend her time with her husband Keith Urban and their young daughters Sunday, five, and Faith, two, on their farm.
She told Britain's Glamour magazine : "I'm not suited to the big glamorous life. I tried it and it doesn't quite sit with me."
