Evan Rachel Wood has revealed she would like to be a superhero.

The Mildred Pierce star, who has appeared in big screen dramas such as The Wrestler, Thirteen and The Conspirator, fancies spreading her wings into lighter fare like action and comedies.

"I would totally be a superhero, I really would actually," she told The Playlist.

"I never get offered superheroes and I never get offered comedies because people just have an idea of who I am as an actor."

Evan - who next stars in The Ides Of March with George Clooney and Ryan Gosling - reckons she could hold her own as an action heroine like Alien's Ripley.

"I have a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. I can kick butt. I wasn't good at ballet and I was a fighter. I did it for years," she said.

"I would love to do like a Ripley or a Sarah Connor, but they are few and far between," she added.
