She'll do whatever it takes to get that EGOT!

Saartjie Baartman, who was more commonly known as the Hottentot Venus, was shipped off to London to perform in "freak shows" during the late 1700s through early 1800s against her will!

According to The Sun, the singer hopes that this project will be the prestige piece she needs to win an Oscar! An inside source revealed:

"Beyoncé is desperate to be taken seriously as an actress. Even though she's had a string of well-received movies, she still feels her breakthrough role is yet to come."

And Bey won't just be playing the starring role, but will be penning the script as well! The source added:

"She now wants to write a screenplay that gains her respect — and hopefully awards — from the film industry, and thinks Saartjie's story could be her ticket."

The 34-year-old has reportedly been doing tons of background research on Saartjie's lifelong struggle to better develop the story and character.

Obviously, the star is Bootylicious enough to take on this role — and hopefully she's as good a screenwriter as she is a songwriter!
