Beyoncé Knowles ‘grounded’ by acting

Beyoncé Knowles

Beyoncé Knowles feels like the "new kid" at school every time she makes a film.

The former Destiny's Child star is the queen of multitasking, juggling her singing career with a foray into the movie industry and motherhood.

However, Beyoncé admits it's always nerve-wracking being on set for the first time.

"It's almost like the first day of school every time I do a film, because I'm surrounded by people that... [are] the masters of acting and I am the new kid on the block," she admitted to Britain's more! magazine.

"So it really grounds me... I'm not in a rush to do a film unless it's something that's going to change my life."

As well as starring in movies such as Dreamgirls and Obsessed, Beyoncé let fans into her life in very personal documentary Beyoncé: Life Is But a Dream.

In it, she recalled the heartbreak of going through a miscarriage in the hope it would help others in a similar situation.

"I know how many women struggle with that, and I thought it was important for people to know that that's something no one can control... It happens to everyone," she explained.

"And... when you look at your challenges as life experiences, you can grow from these things."

The 31-year-old star, who is married to hip-hop mogul Jay-Z, is currently on her The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.

The tour will take her through Europe and finish in America in August.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Beware of spending beyond your means. Sticking to a budget will help you survive the festive season relatively unscathed. It will be easier than you think to let your grip on the purse strings slip especially as the big day draws near. Let Christmas be about loving, sharing and giving. Spend quality time preparing food, making decorations and playing games together. If you haven't sent all your cards or round robin emails give some thought about what you will be sharing with others this year.More
