Cher Didn’t Want To Make ‘Burlesque’

December 13th, 2010 // 1 Comment

Christina Aguilera and Cher hit the London premiere of Burlesque in some risk-taking outfits where Cher revealed that she originally did not want to make the movie.

After taking a seven year hiatus from acting, Cher was practically forced by the director to take on the role of Tess, the owner of a night club where Christina’s character Ali wants to perform burlesque.

Wearing a flaming orange wig, the 64-year-old iconic singer admitted, “Yes, he did beg me. They all begged me and kept saying ‘no, no’, and suddenly I found myself on the stage.”

The reason? “I wanted to sing in a film,” Cher said.

The other plus was that filming was fun and a great female bonding experience.

“The girls mostly were together,” Cher said. “And it was fun being around that many women, sitting around talking during the breaks. We got friendly.”

So what if the movie sucks, right?

    Iis so inspiring and I hope we haven’t seen the last of you yet.
    and as far as Christina goes I knew she could sing but did’nt
    know what a wonderful actress she is as well.
    I go back to the Cher and Sony Bono days and have many of your albums.
    My daughter is soon to graduate with a Ph.D from the woman’s studies
    program at UCLA. She lives in L..A. and we have been out( we live on Cape Cod,
    Ma.) several times. She just got married with the ceremony being on the El Matador
    beach. We have been up the trails at the Will Rogers state park and have enjoyed the breathtaking views of L.A. ( air rigts..mmmmhhh, that is an interesting concept).
    The point being I want to thank-you and your staff and of course Christina for giving
    all of yourselves to this wonderful lmovie,(love story, etc.) and cher we hope we “haven’t seen the last of (you) yet”. Thank- you again. Jeff Twarog
