Eminem Open To A Return To Acting After His Oscars Performance
Yep, Marshall Mathers, who appeared at the 92nd Oscars on Sunday evening to sing 'Lose Yourself', the tune that won him the Best Original Song award at the 75th Academy Awards in 2003, has spoken out about how much he enjoyed his short acting career, and the prospect of a return to the silver screen.
Two decades on from his only starring role (8 Mile), Slim Shady confirmed that he's still interested in acting during an interview with Variety.
Asked if he has any interest in an acting comeback, he replied: "I'm not gonna say I don't [have interest], because if the right script comes along and it's something that fits with my schedule I might take another dive in it."
It seems as if the experience certainly left a mark on him. The film, which starred Kim Basinger, Mekhi Phifer, Brittany Murphy, Michael Shannon, and Anthony Mackie, alongside Mathers, received broadly positive reviews.
Speaking of his time on set, Em continued: "There was a lot of stuff that was not, um... It was a lot of work, and it being my first film I was not really expecting that.
"And it's tough when you've got to be on someone else's schedule, with the way that I work.
"But yeah, I'm certainly glad that I did it, and there were parts that were definitely fun, it was just a lot."
During the same interview, he also revealed that he's got no plans for other albums just now, so there's a bit of time in his schedule if anyone's interested.
He released his 11th studio album, entitled 'Music To Be Murdered By' in January.
Following on from his blockbuster appearance at Sunday's glitzy ceremony in Los Angeles, Mathers was quick to thank the Academy for setting up his performance and apologising belatedly for not showing up to collect the award, which he shared with Luis Resto and Jeff Bass, the first time around.
Sharing a video of the announcement that 'Lose Yourself' had won in 2002, he tweeted: "Look, if you had another shot, another opportunity... Thanks for having me @TheAcademy. Sorry it took me 18 years to get here."
Hey, if he keeps his schedule free, and gets the right offer, it might not be the last time we ever see Eminem at the Oscars.
