Mariah Carey wants to work with Woody Allen.

The singer-and-actress, whose recent performance as a social worker Mrs. Weiss in 'Precious: Based on the novel 'Push' by Sapphire' received widespread critical acclaim, admits she is a big fan of the director.

She said: "I've never met him, but 'Bullets Over Broadway' is one of my favourite movies ever. I can quote every word. I think it's amazing."

Mariah, whose best-known acting role was previously in the poorly-received movie 'Glitter', claims she is now more apprehensive about what she chooses to work on.

She told E! Online: "I'm going to try to be careful about what I do. You've got to work with people who bring you to another level and you have to surround yourself with people you can fully give yourself too."

Mariah won the Best Supporting Actress at the Capri Awards last year, as well as Breakthrough Performance prize at the Palm Springs International Film Festival.
