Pedro Almodovar has named Dame Helen Mirren and Kate Winslet as British actresses he would like to work with.

The Spanish director was in London for the UK premiere of his film The Skin I Live In, which stars Antonio Banderas and newcomer Elena Anaya.

When asked if he wanted to work with any British actors, he said: "There are many. Helen Mirren - I met her a long time ago."

He added that he may even make a film in English in the future.

On the red carpet at Somerset House, he said: "I admire very much the British school of acting, so I hope that one day I will make a film in English, not necessarily in Hollywood and I hope that I will be able to work with some of these British actresses that I like, like Kate Winslet."

He went on to say that he would also consider working with Australian actress Cate Blanchett.
