Rapper Missy Elliott has been so busy with her music career, her acting ambitions have been relegated to TV commercials.

The WORK IT star, who most recently shot ads for clothing giant GAP alongside Madonna, has long held desires to put her talents in front of the camera, but the time she spends recording in the studio has forced her acting plans to take a back seat.

She says, "I've been so busy producing for other artists and working on my new CD that I haven't had that much time to really pursue acting like I want.

"I do have a small part in Honey with Jessica Alba and Mekhi Phifer, but for the most part, all my acting lately has been in commercials."

Honey makes its way to the big screen in November (03) - the same month her new album is due.
