Music mogul Pharrell Williams has another talent he's planning to unleash on the world - acting.

The handsome musician raps and sings as part of N*E*R*D* and produces acts such as Justin Timberlake, Busta Rhymes, Nelly, TLC, Usher, Britney Spears, Kelis and Snoop Dogg under the name of The Neptunes.

Williams' latest venture sees him starring in a short film called THE ECOLOGY OF LOVE - but warns fans he doesn't think his acting talents are as strong as his musical ones.

Williams says, "I don't consider myself an actor, I probably never will consider myself an actor, but it's a means of expressing myself and I'm cool with that.

"It takes patience and it takes focus because you're working on one scene over and over and over again, and you haven't even gotten to page 75, line 2. You haven't even gotten to that.

"You've just got to really trust the director and you've got to really study that."
