Rapper Eminem, who won acclaim for his debut film 8 Mile, has described acting as like being in "prison".
Eminem won rave reviews for his role in 8 Mile
The multi-million-selling music star said he would never again take a major part in a film that was directed by someone else.
"Prison. That's what I think of as the closest thing to making that movie," he told BBC Radio 1 on Sunday.
"It's kinda like you're on somebody else's schedule . It was a big movie, it was a big role. Every scene. I'm never going to do that again."
But Eminem, currently playing a string of UK stadium dates, joked that he would have to be cloned to do all the projects he wanted.
When asked whether he would ever make another film, he replied: "I've thought about it.
"In a perfect world there'd be enough me to do what I do, like that cloning thing they're doing.
"They should hurry that up, then I'd be able to do movies and rap and produce at the same time and run a label and rip my hair out."
His protégé, 50 Cent, has revealed that he is planning to make a rap movie along the lines of Eminem.
