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.

You can communicate effectively about controversial topics like religion, politics and education. When you talk, people listen. Take this opportunity to lobby for changes to an outmoded institution. Making resources more readily available to the public will be a great use of your time. You're tired of seeing only the most privileged members of the community thrive. Promoting a more democratic approach will cause your stature to rise. Don't be surprised if a group asks you to run for office.More
