London: Australian actress Abbie Cornish is eyeing a career in the world of music if her movie roles dry up.

The "Sucker Punch" star has had musical ambitions since taking up DJing as a teenager and she is keen to record a hip-hop album, reports

"I would love to play here in Los Angeles... and record an album. I think it`s just a timing thing. I`m so focused on movies now," Cornish told Esquire magazine.

"I`m always writing lyrics. I have so many lyrics written on so many stray pieces of paper. Everywhere. I just write about... whatever`s on my mind. Whatever`s going on."

"I got into DJing and making beats when I was about 17. I was always fascinated by the four elements of hip-hop; writing, rhyming, breakdancing and graffiti. I`m in a crew now. I love it. It`s a huge part of my life," she added.
