Whoopi Goldberg is desperate to star in a Wes Anderson film.

The 59-year-old actress - whose previous film credits include 'The Color Purple' and 'Sister Act' - is a huge admirer of the acclaimed director and is so keen to appear in one of his movies, she's passed a copy of her CV to actor Jason Schwartzman, a regular in Anderson's films.

She said: ''I want to do this right, because you know I love all the Wes Anderson movies and that you starred in like, almost all of them - 'Grand Budapest Hotel' and 'Moonrise Kingdom' and 'Rushmore' and all of those.

''So, I noticed there's not a lot of folks of colour, and I thought I would like to give you my resume to give to Wes Anderson and just to let him know I'm available. As you see, I've interned on 'The Late Show'.''

And Jason - who starred in the award-winning 'Grand Budapest Hotel' last year - promised to pass on Whoopi's CV.

He told 'The View': ''You're an incredible person who has given me so many things to be excited about. Thank you for all of your work.''
