We’ve had Indiana Jones, Rocky and Rambo wheeled out from retirement. Now, as she approaches her 60s, Sigourney Weaver is craving a piece of the “comeback” pie.

The Hollywood actress is considering resurrecting her most famous character – shaven-headed, muscle-bound Alien heroine Ellen Ripley.

“I would definitely do another if I had a director like Ridley Scott and we had a good idea,” she says of the classic sci-fi movie franchise. “Ridley is enthusiastic about it.”

The married mother of one – who first played Ripley aged 30 in 1979 before going on to star in Aliens (1986), Alien 3 (1992) and Alien: Resurrection (1997) – says if such sixtysomethings as Harrison Ford and Sylvester Stallone can do it, so can she.

“I’m not going to start apologising,” she says of her age in next month’s Saga magazine.

“Sophia Loren is my inspiration. She is a woman who has never apologised for being herself.”
