Kristen Bell has praised her 'Burlesque' co-star Christina Aguilera for her commitment and studious approach to the film.

Kristen Bell has praised her 'Burlesque' co-star Christina Aguilera's commitment for her commitment on set.

The 30-year-old screen beauty - who plays bad girl dancer Nikki in the musical film alongside Christina and Oscar-winning actress Cher - was impressed by the studious approach of the singer-turned-actress, who made her big screen debut in the project.

She told BANG Showbiz: "It made me feel like I had the home court advantage. It made me feel comfortable. But the reason why Christina is the way she is, is because she is fearless and she jumps into everything wholeheartedly and that's exactly what she did.

She said: "I don't know what I'm doing and I'm here to learn,' and that's exactly what she did, she studied the entire time and was just wonderful."

Kristen believes the 'Dirrty' hitmaker was perfect for the role of small-town girl Ali who becomes a dancing and singing star because of the similarities to her own life.

She said: "Only Christina could have played this. This was about a girl who knew that she had a gift and it was absolutely necessary that she shared it with the world. She heard herself sing when she was five years old and had to share it."

  1. Please ask Christina to visit Atlantic city Hilton resort & casino in Atlantic city, Nj between feb 20 thru April 28th.. My daughter jacklyn Maffucci was recently cast as the lead singer/dancer in the live BURLESQUE performance called "boardwalk follies". She went to manhattan for her 1st prof audition (she attended AMDA in nyc) and was unanimously cast as the lead. She had to perform 2 christina's songs, then had to learn & perform the dance choreography to the title song of the movie. She's 22 and is Christina's biggest fan ever, and it finally paid off. We would be honored if she would attend the show. My email is if you'd like more info, the press release is out in about 2 weeks!
