Leona Lewis loves Los Angeles.

The British singer spends a lot of time in the US city for her music career and is a huge fan of the lifestyle.

She said: "It's really outdoorsy and I love that. It's always sunny and I loved going on horse trails and hiking in the canyons.

"At first, I didn't like Los Angeles - it's so vast and you have to drive everywhere. Everyone has this perception that I'm over there a lot, but it's just for work. My life is in London."

The 25-year-old pop star's love of Los Angeles may have inspired her ambition to star in a film.

One of Leona's idols is Beyonce Knowles and she would love to follow in her footsteps and make the move from music to Hollywood.

She previously said: "Beyonce is a great girl, so lovely and down to earth and talented. She's definitely inspiring for females.

"I might go into acting like she did - I'm not sure. If the right thing comes along, like a small part in a movie, I might."
