Abbie Cornish wants to be a rapper.

The 'RoboCop' actress is determined to pursue a career in hip-hop and has admitted she's currently recording an album, which she is hoping to release later this year.

She told E! News: "I'm half-way through it [the album]. I go back into the studio at the end of February. It should be finished soon. It should be released toward the end of the year."

The 31-year-old star takes inspiration from Eminem, but insists her music taste is varied.

She explained: "My favourite rapper is Eminem. But my music collection goes from classical to jazz to blues. My favourite era is the sixties and seventies. I have a very eclectic taste in music."

However, the blonde beauty insists her studio collection won't contain lots of covers because she prefers to write her own tracks and she's also lined up some collaborations.

She said: "I compose and write. I'm working with a lot of producers and musicians."

Abbie may not be part of the soundtrack for her new flick 'RoboCop', but she admits she immediately signed up to the role of cyborg cop Alex Murphy's wife Clara and is glad she accepted the part.

She said: "I've done a lot of art house and a lot of indies, but I loved this. It's the most fun I've had making a movie."
