Marianne Faithfull has revealed she'd love to get more comic acting parts after a light-hearted turn in her latest film.

The singer, actress and sixties icon plays a housekeeper in the romantic drama Belle du Seigneur, which also stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers and model Natalia Vodianova.

"I loved it. I'm sort of funny (in it) too, which I love being," she said.

"Having a comic part was great. I haven't done many comic parts in the past and I think I'm quite good at it, I'd love to do more."

The film, due out next year, is an adaptation of Albert Cohen's French story of a love affair between a Jewish diplomat and a married Protestant woman on the eve of the Second World War.

"I loved it, I had a great time. It was Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who's great, and a really good actor, and Natalia Vodianova who's very beautiful and very good," Marianne said.

She added: "Music is my life, that's what's kept me alive and kept me happy and it's very important. But I do love acting too."

:: Marianne's latest solo album, Horses And High Heels, is out now.
