Couple's Retreat actress Malin Akerman wants to star in the new Avengers movie.
The sexy blonde is rumoured to be battling it out against Sex And The City 2's Alice Eve for the lead female role in Joss Whedon's new superhero movie, and while Malin insists it is just a rumour, she admitted she'd love the part.
Malin told E! news: "I saw that [on the internet] and I copied and pasted it to my agent, he was like, 'Where did you get this?'. He called the studio and it was just a made-up rumour unfortunately.
"Maybe it'll influence the studio to go ahead and be like, 'Hey, how about Malin Akerman for the part?'."
The actress attended the Maui Film Festival screening of Happythankyoumoreplease, an indie drama in which she plays a woman living with alopecia, and she shaved off her eyebrows for the movie.
She revealed: "It was interesting taking a shower because so much more water got in my eyes. You don't realise how useful your eyebrows are."
Happythankyoumoreplease, stars How I Met Your Mother's Josh Radnor, and is also his writing and directing debut.
Malin said: "He's so intelligent. You're just stricken by his intellect. He's well spoken and he has some amazing visions.
"My husband and I were chilling with him the other night. When we walked away my husband goes 'Wow, that guy thinks a lot'. He really does."
