Nicki Minaj is still an actress at heart. She’s made it clear in several interviews that she has her sights set on Hollywood, and she recently revealed who she’d like to work with, as well.

“I went to school to be an actress. I never expected to be a rapper. It just fell in my lap. So I would like to get an acting gig. I hope that when I am done with the tour I can go back and do some acting. That is my long-term goal,” she said at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards. See pics here!

And just who would she like to work with? “Will Smith, because he’s a very successful rapper turned actor and therefore a role model. And [Alice in Wonderland director] Tim Burton because I love his crazy imagination. He comes up with these characters that are just so fascinating and the costumes and just creates these whole worlds.”
