Britney Spears might have just started her two-year Las Vegas residency, but the pop starlet wants to act again.

"I would love to act," Spears told E! News in a recent interview. "I would love to do movies," she added, "If it was the right part, it would be really cool … I love funny movies."

The 32-year-old hasn't been on the big screen since 2002's "Crossroads," opposite Zoe Saldana and Taryn Manning. The flick grossed $37 million domestically, according to Box Office Mojo, and ranked No. 2 on its opening weekend. Since then, Spears accepted smaller roles on "Will & Grace" and "How I Met Your Mother."

Although she thinks about putting her acting hat back on, Spears has also considered retiring.

"I have thought about it, but I think right now is my time to perform and [do] what I'm doing," she told E! News. "If I happen to have another baby or something like that, I'd probably move back to Louisiana. I do miss Louisiana. I miss the people. I miss the food. I miss the way of life, how everything is really simple. There's no traffic like there is in L.A. It's really nice."

On Friday (Dec. 27), Spears kicked off her Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. The show is a retrospective of the superstar's 15-year career and features performances of her biggest hits, including "... Baby One More Time," "Crazy," "Toxic" and "Til the World Ends."
