Emma Stone: I want to do a mime

Emma Stone has revealed that she would like a silent role.

The Amazing Spider-Man actress, who next stars in Gangster Squad alongside her Crazy Stupid Love co-star Ryan Gosling, admitted she fancies the challenge of letting her actions do the talking on the big screen.

"I'm dying to play a mime. I would love to play a mime," she said.

Emma, who has starred in The Help, Zombieland and Easy A, also revealed that she can't wait to start on Cameron Crowe's as-yet-untitled movie opposite Bradley Cooper.

"I'm excited to start working with Cameron Crowe, who I've loved for a very long time," she continued.

"And I think more than anything, I'm really dying to work with directors and writers I admire like Kathryn Hahn, Hank Azaria and great comedy actors who are severely underrated. There are a lot of people, I wouldn't want to say because I might get embarrassed."

Sean Penn and Josh Brolin also star in Gangster Squad, which is in cinemas now.
