Jessica Simpson is desperate to hone her acting skills on the London stage - but will consider nothing less than a role in a William Shakespeare play.

The 25-year-old beauty, who plays sex-bomb Daisy Duke in the big screen version of The Dukes of Hazzard, now considers herself a seasoned actress and is convinced a classic production would finally eradicate her dumb blonde image.

"I have always loved Shakespeare. That's the job I want - anything at the Globe."
