Anne Hathaway's wish for a Glee cameo could soon come true.

The Love And Other Drugs star approached the show's co-creator Ryan Murphy backstage at the Golden Globes, after bumping into him "on her way to the bathroom".

"She wants to play Chris Colfer's lesbian aunt - she presented the whole episode, she came up with the songs," Ryan told The Hollywood Reporter.

Ryan - whose musical programme won best comedic television series - is up for giving Anne a cameo.

"I love her and would definitely be interested," he said.

He later told Access Hollywood: "I think we'll do it probably in a month and a half or so. I have to talk to Anne about what she wants to sing. I'm sure she has ideas. I'm excited about that."

Anne has admitted her passion to US talk show host Jimmy Fallon, saying: "In my head, I've written a part for myself on Glee. In my head I've cast myself on Glee and I know what song I'd sing.

"I would want to play Kurt's long-lost aunt, his mother's sister who is also gay, who comes back to help him deal with his sexuality, and I would sing, You Are Not Alone from Stephen Sondheim's epic show Into The Woods."

Chris, whose portrayal of gay Kurt won him the gong for Best Supporting Actor, said he's looking forward to the collaboration.

"I'm so excited. I love her and I worship her," he said.
