Kate Beckinsale, who is known for her action film roles, has revealed that she would love to be offered more romantic comedy parts in the future if the scripts were funny enough.
The 38-year old actress also claimed that she would want to explore as many movie genres as possible.
“I haven’t done many romantic comedies because I’m a huge snob about comedy and I often don’t find them very funny,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling Total Film magazine.
Beckinsale currently stars in Len Wiseman’s sci-fi remake ‘Total Recall’ with Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel and Bill Nighy.
She plays Lori, Colin’s feisty on-screen wife who helps him run from the police after a memory-altering procedure goes awry.
Kate is delighted with her new role and admitted that big blockbuster roles are few and far between.
“The ones that make you go, ‘Ooh, let me play that’ don’t come around every two weeks. I’ll go months, maybe even years where I don’t find something that I want to do,” she said.
“And sometimes you go, ‘Right that’s it, I can’t hibernate forever and you do something that isn’t your dream job, but gives you something that’s interesting,” she added.
