London, Feb 29 (ANI): Cate Blanchett has revealed that she is so keen to play a Bond villain that she would be "there in a heartbeat" if the producers came calling.

The 42-year-old actress said that she would be happy to play an unglamorous baddie, citing Rosa Klebb in 'From Russia With Love' as her favourite character.

Asked by Harper's Bazaar magazine if she would like to appear in the next Bond film, Blanchett replied in the affirmative.

"Oh, God, yes! I'd be there in a heartbeat," the Telegraph quoted her as saying.

"I love Lotte Lenya. She had a club foot and a limp. I'm not a purist in that way," she said.

The 'Little Fish' star also expressed an interest in portraying Diana, Princess of Wales on screen, although since the interview was carried out it has been announced that Naomi Watts will play the late princess in a forthcoming biopic. (ANI)
