Eminem, Marshall Mathers in real life, recently opened up about if he would like to go back to acting after featuring in '8 Mile' over a decade ago.
Eminem evidently managed to surprise the viewers at the 92nd Academy Awards ceremony as he performed his song ‘Lose Yourself’. The rapper's performance was kept as a secret and Eminem graced the Oscars stage almost 17 years after he won his award.
Asked if he has any interest in an acting comeback, he was quick to reply that he wouldn't like to say that he is not interested. The rapper wishes to feature in a film only when a right script comes along. He also emphasized that he would only be open to working in a film again if his schedule allows him to.

"I'm not gonna say I don't, because if the right script comes along and it's something that fits with my schedule I might take another dive in it."
The rapper was also asked about his experience of working on 8 Mile. It seems as if the experience certainly left a mark on him. The film, which starred Kim Basinger, Mekhi Phifer, Brittany Murphy, Michael Shannon, and Anthony Mackie, alongside Mathers, received broadly positive reviews.
"There was a lot of stuff that was not, um... It was a lot of work, and it being my first film I was not really expecting that. he said.

"And it's tough when you've got to be on someone else's schedule, with the way that I work. he continued.
"But yeah, I'm certainly glad that I did it, and there were parts that were definitely fun, it was just a lot."
He also revealed that he doesn't have any other albums in the plans as of now, which could create an opportunity if he so chooses to get back into acting.
After his performance at the Academy Awards, which occurred 17 years after the song won an Oscar, Eminem put out a tweet thanking the team for their hard work in setting everything up and ensuring that everything was kept secretive up until his grand entrance.

"Look, if you had another shot, another opportunity... Thanks for having me @TheAcademy. Sorry it took me 18 years to get here," he posted with a video of the 2003 announcement by Barbara Streisand attached.
