Los Angeles - Anne Hathaway is eyeing a role in a Quentin Tarantino film.

The Devil Wears Prada star usually appears in family-friendly movies but is considering a change in the future so she can be one of Quentin's heroines.

She said: "I'm proud that my body of work includes stories that allow families to experience that together. I can't say that I'm going to continue to make them because I have a child now, I just will continue to hopefully make them because I respond to them and seek challenges as an actress.

"I've always wanted to be in a Quentin Tarantino film. I really, I love the way he sees women. I think there's definitely room for that in the world, and I would love to be one of his heroines."

And the 33-year-old actress - who has two-month-old son Jonathan with her husband Adam Shulman - also praised Disney for stopping the narrative that "women lose power as they get older" with their latest movie Alice Through the Looking Glass.

Speaking to reporters at a press conference to promote the new film, she added: "I don't feel it's happening as I get older, you know? I don't feel that. I'm becoming way more powerful as I get older, and I'm tired of myself feeling the opposite, and 'I'm not going to do it,' and 'I can't do it alone.' It's going to take everybody ... to stop using that language and take the narrative back the way Alice does."

Meanwhile, Anne previously admitted she is "so surprised" by her success.

She said: "This whole thing, everything that's happened to me has been such a lovely surprise. I've worked very hard for it, but I'm so surprised that it's going as well as it is."
