The Blade Runner star is keen to follow in the footsteps of Halle Berry, Julie Newmar, Anne Hathaway, and Michelle Pfeiffer as the Caped Crusader's feline femme fatale.

She famously dressed up as Selina Kyle's cat-like alter-ego in a bid to try and convince Tim Burton to hire her for his 1992 movie Batman Returns, but the director had already cast Pfeiffer.

That rejection didn't put Sean off - and she still thinks she'd make the 'purrfect' Catwoman.

"If these Warner Bros. executives now were really good businessmen, they’d let me play Catwoman today, and I’d make a smash amount of money," she told The Hollywood Reporter, "but they’re too stupid.

"Nobody wants to take that risk, it’s too scary. If they’re wrong, it can cost them their job. If there were really good businessmen over there, it’d be an obvious no brainer, but I'm not running the studio."

Sean hasn't had a lot of luck with the Batman franchise - she was cast as Vicky Vale in Burton's 1989 film Batman, but broke her arm during rehearsals and was replaced by Kim Basinger.

"If (producer) John Peters had wanted me I think they could have shot around it. I think he just had a hard-on for Kim Basinger. He had a good excuse to let me go and hire her. It hurt me, but that’s showbusiness."

And she still dreams of working with Woody Allen again, after she was edited out of the filmmaker's Crimes and Misdemeanors.

"I just wrote to him recently," she explained. "I had this idea I wanted to talk to him about. I ended up being edited out of Crimes and Misdemeanors, and he wrote me a letter saying, 'It’s not you...!' You owe me."
