Michelle Pfeiffer has one last genre to tick off on her acting bucket list - she wants to "kick butt" in an action movie.

The actress famously starred as Catwoman in the 1992 superhero blockbuster Batman Returns and she plays a mob wife in new action mafia movie The Family with Robert De Niro - but she admits her dream is to be the star of her very own high-octane film.

She tells MovieFone.com, "I can't believe I'm saying this but I'd like to do an action movie. Yeah (I have done some action), but, I want to be like the Kiefer Sutherland character in 24. Jack Bauer? I want to be like him! I want to kick butt."

Pfeiffer insists she would even consider a move to the small screen if it meant she could get her hands on an action-packed script.

She adds, "There's really great work being done on Tv right now. That's where a lot of the really good work is being done. Actors just want to do good work. It doesn't matter where it is."
