The `Rehab` singer is reportedly hoping to make the transition from music to movies, and has even signed up for acting lessons to help her achieve her Hollywood dream.
A family friend told the Daily Star newspaper: "Amy has enrolled for acting lessons at the Central School of Speech and Drama in north London.
"Everyone close to her thinks it`s a great idea and believes she could make the transition from singer to actress quite easily."
The troubled star`s obsession with Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe is said to have partly inspired the potential career move, and 26-year-old Amy is even considering emulating the tragic screen legend`s famous look.
A source said: "Amy keeps talking about Marilyn Monroe. She`s obsessed with her and everything she stands for.
"Amy keeps saying she wants to die her hair blonde, so she can be as sexy as Marilyn."
In 2008, Marilyn`s films were said to have helped struggling Amy deal with her spell in rehab, where she was battling drug addiction.
At the time, her father Mitch Winehouse said: "One thing helping Amy is her Marilyn Monroe films. Amy loves `Some Like It Hot`. She`s a huge fan of Monroe and thinks she`s wonderful."
As well as eyeing a movie career, Amy is also working on the follow-up to her hugely successful 2006 album `Back to Black`, with Mitch saying the new LP will hopefully be released by this December.
