Sigourney WeaverAvatar actress Sigourney Weaver insists her advancing age has never affected the amount of movie roles she has been offered and the 60-year-old is set to play a stripper in her next appearance.

The actress has revealed she is set to sign up for a new project in which she will portray an exotic dancer dealing with getting older, reports

"There's a project which sees me as an ageing stripper. But I can't say a lot about that one. It's going to be a surprise! I'm also playing the leading role in a film by Nicholas Roeg," she said.

The actress famous for her action-packed roles like in Alien is keen to take on the part because she feels more attractive now than ever before.

"I feel sexier than ever. I used to be really insecure. I hope I'll live up to a 100 years. I never wanted to be like James Dean (American actor) - die young and be famous afterwards," she said.

Unlike many of her contemporaries, Sigourney says she has never felt her advancing years have had a negative effect on the work she is offered.

"I don't try to look young at all costs. Why should you cast a 55-year-old looking like a 35- year-old, when you can cast a 35-year-old to begin with? If you look like 55 and feel comfortable with it, you will get casted. My roles have become more interesting with time," she said.
