Lewis Hamilton hopes to do more acting in the future

Lewis Hamilton would like to dip his toes into the movie world.

The Formula 1 racing ace stars in a new Reebok computer game as a secret agent who has to retrieve stolen paintings and return them to their rightful owners.

Asked if he'd like to try more acting, he said: "I always keep an open mind, I like movies, so who knows?"

He added: "Maybe in the future when I'm a lot older because I do love racing, we will have to see. But I think until then to do a little bit here and there would be quite cool."

Asked about movie cameos, he said: "I haven't had any offers yet but will have to see. Hopefully things like I'm doing for Reebok will begin to open up doors to this sort of stuff in the future."

But Lewis, who has rekindled his relationship with Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger, admits acting is hard work.

He said: "I generally just turn up and learn my lines and do the best job I can. It's a real challenge. You're used to turning up, sitting in a car and then performing but this is a completely different area and understanding to have. I'm not fantastic at it but I think it worked quite well."
