Los Angeles - Adele wants to launch an acting career.

The 27-year-old singer loved working with director Xavier Dolan on the music video for her new single Hello and would love to appear in one of his "incredible'' films in the future.

She said: "After doing my music video, I'm sure I'll get some flak for this, but I actually would like to act after working with Xavier Dolan who is truly, truly amazing and his films are incredible.

"I would be in a film for him definitely.

"I don't like it when those singers start acting it makes them mediocre. But I don't quite know what I'd be cast as anyway."

The Skyfall singer loves being a mother to her two-year-old son Angelo - who she has with fiance Simon Konecki - and says having him in her life has made her more proud of her career achievements.

Speaking to Rickie, Melvin and Charlie on KISS FM, she said: "He's completely changed the way I think about everything.

"He actually makes me really proud of myself with the success of 21 and everything and even like the Bond stuff. I've never been proud of myself but when I had him I was like, 'Oh my god, I'm making a legacy here', you know.

"Sure I still mess up sometimes and say something stupid."
