Kylie Minogue - Kylie Minogue Had To Stop Being 'Kylie' For ‘Holy Motors’

Kylie Minogue has revealed she had to "stop being Kylie" for her new film role, reports The Associated Press.

Minogue came to the conclusion that she couldn’t simply be herself, and had to pretend to be someone else, in what most people universally recognise as the art of acting. This epiphany came before her role as airhostess Eva Grace in the new film, Holy Motors. "It's good to be acting again,” the pint sized pop star explained. “It terrifies me in a completely different way and I almost had to unlearn things that I just do naturally, as being 'Kylie'. So, I think I had extra work to get rid of that and to be believable as this character." Good advice to any aspiring thespians out there.

Kylie continued to elaborate on her most recent acting experience: "It was all done live in the scene. I don't know how many takes we did but it was all done in situ,” she told reporters on the red carpet for the film. “And I had to find my path to go from speaking to bursting into song, which seems quite odd. And not performing that like I would one of my own songs. My voice was more prepared than the rest of me - that's what I do. But the first time I heard the song I was welling up. It's such beautiful song, so I think that aided me." Holy Motors opens in cinemas on September 28, and has received positive reviews so far.
