Lewis Hamilton opened up about his desire to be an actor.

“I was trying to get in Top Gun because I’m a massive fan of Top Gun, but I didn’t have time to do any filming,” Lewis shared. “But I had an opportunity to do it and I couldn’t do it.”

Lewis also confessed that he’s been auditioning for roles and is working with an acting coach.

I auditioned for a movie a while ago and it took one day to learn the role,” Lewiscontinued. “I had a fashion show in Paris, and I probably had maybe four or five shows to go to, so in between I quickly changed and saw this [acting] coach, and I saw her for 20 minutes and we quickly went through one part and then I went to a show and came back and went through another part. By the end of the day I had to record a video to send it to Los Angeles – it was so cool!”
