Following her performance in The Other Woman, Nicki Minaj has said she wants to take on more film roles.

Minaj, who plays Cameron Diaz's assistant in the comedy, told MTV News, "It gave me an idea as to what the world would be like being on a set and being in a trailer for hours. And now that I know it's something I can do, I think I want to expand a role eventually.

"I am going to auditions, and I'm trying to find the right roles with the right director and the right writers. I want to be part of something from the beginning stage this time, and I want a role to be custom-made for me."

She added that she would like to try out a variety of roles, "The thing is I have such a versatile personality. Some days I feel like I wanna do a Will Ferrell comedy, some days I feel like I wanna do more like a Set It Off-type of a movie with some other young black actresses and like creating a movement with that. And sometimes I think, maybe I could do X-Men or something."

The Other Woman also stars Leslie Mann, Kate Upton and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and is in cinemas now.
