Actress-burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese would pick actress Scarlett Johansson to be a burlesque dancer if she was given a chance. The 40-year-old Teese is known as the Queen of Burlesque.
"If I had to pick one of today's celebrities to be a burlesque dancers, I'd chose Scarlett Johansson. She came to one of my (burlesque) shows once, she was sitting in front row with her mouth agape and she couldn't take her eyes off of me," said Teese. The 40-year-old said Scarlett was fixated with her during a show and the feeling was mutual.
Teese praised Scarlett's body as well. "She has a great body and you can see that she has a good relationship with her own sexuality," added the dancer who is thought to have helped re-produce burlesque performance.
Teese, who believes every artist should have their own character and style, was also full of praise for a number of other A-listers who have made their mark in the entertainment industry, including Madonna and Lady Gaga.
"I'm from Detroit (Michigan) and Madonna is from around there. She's been the person who influenced my career the most, she's interesting, she's an icon."
"I love Lady Gaga and her eccentric spirit. She's fascinating and charming, but there will never be another Madonna," she added.
