Meghan Trainor's acting ambition

Meghan Trainor's acting ambition

Meghan Trainor wants to become an actress.

The 'All About That Bass' hitmaker may have poured her blood, sweat and tears into becoming a pop star but she's now keen to pack away her microphone temporarily and launch an acting career.

She said: "My biggest dream right now is to start an acting career. I'm going to get an acting coach soon."

And the starlet has already got her foot on the ladder as she was asked to pen new tracks for 'The Peanut Movie' but she's hoping she can soon persuade bosses to give her an actual role.

She added: "I was terrified and honoured [when I was asked to write the songs]. When I told my grandmother, she was pumped! I still have to pinch myself. It's unbelievable."

The 22-year-old singer was overcome with emotion when she heard her song play in the cinema for the first time but she managed to keep her excitement contained until she left the venue.

She explained to Star magazine: "I was with my family and when I realised my song was coming up, my heart was pounding out of my chest. When it finally happened, I wanted to stand up and dance, but I kept my cool. My brothers and I were dancing in our seats. It was very emotional. I cried when I walked out of the theatre."
