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.

When others are at the helm, progress grinds to a halt. People deliberate endlessly over simple matters. Instead of putting pressure on the person in charge, make a strategic retreat. If you act like you don't care about the outcome of a situation, they won't be paralysed with uncertainty. You have a tendency to make people nervous.More
