Nick Cannon wants to make a film with Mariah Carey.

The rapper-and-presenter claims his spouse is the funniest person he knows and he would love for them to show off her comedic talents in a joint venture.

He said: "I'd love to do a film with Mariah. But it would have to be a comedy. She's the funniest woman in the world, she just cracks me up all the time."

Mariah's most recent big screen outing was as a dowdy social worker in 'Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire' and she admits she felt "tortured" by the role, although she believes it has made her a better person.

She said: "It was definitely a commitment to be seen looking that bad. I love Lee Daniels, the director, but he's a sick man. He wanted to torture me.

"But you know, it freed me in a lot of ways. I don't worry about certain things in the same way any more."
