Anne Hathaway has revealed she longs to star in an action movie.

The romcom actress, star of The Devil Wears Prada and Valentine's Day, admitted to the Los Angeles Times she is jealous of her current co-star Jake Gyllenhaal's next role in sci-fi film Source Code, with Vera Farmiga, due out next year.

Anne said: "I want to fly a spaceship. And I want to shoot a laser into some intergalactic goop."

Jake and Anne star as a loved-up couple in the new film Love And Other Drugs and had to abandon all inhibitions to film the intimate nude and sex scenes in front of their director and film crew.

The pair played a young married couple in the 2005 Oscar-winning film Brokeback Mountain, when Jake asked permission to touch Anne's breast. But she joked he wasn't so polite this time.

Anne recalled: "Jake had touched me everywhere except my boob.

"We did it very methodically: I would cover, they'd bring me a towel, I'd get out of the car, go behind a screen and get redressed.

"All of a sudden I hear a throat clear from behind the screen. It's Jake. 'Ah, Annie, so the thing is, in this scene, if it was really you and me in the car, I just think that, you know, ah, can I touch your boob?'."

She added jokingly: "And... I don't think you asked me this time."

But Jake insisted he only needed to ask once, saying: "I already asked. Your offer was still good."
