Los Angeles: British actress Elizabeth Hurley`s son wants to follow in the footsteps of his mother to become a star.

The brunette beauty`s eight-year-old child Damian, whose father is her ex-lover Steve Bing, is constantly begging his mother to resurrect her movie career so he can gain experience on a film set to help him fulfill his dream, ShowbizSpy reported online.

"Damian adores being photographed ? in fact he likes anything to do with showbusiness. He`s written his first screenplay called Escape! and many pop songs which he performs on the dining room table, singing into a hairspray can," Hurley said.

"He spends hours trying to persuade me to do movies again so I can take him out of school to be tutored in my trailer. Needless to say, this is not going to happen," she

The 45-year-old star, who is married to businessman Arun Nayar, has now retired to life on a farm in Gloucestershire with her family which has given her more time to spend with her son.

"Damian gets virtually all my time when he`s not at school. Unless there`s an emergency on, I try not to work between picking him up from school and bedtime. We do piano and guitar practice, the dreaded maths homework, supper, bath, reading and bed together seven nights a week," Hurley said.
