Myleene Klass is a natural born mermaid!August 20th, 2008 - 6:28 pm ICT by ANI
London, Aug 20 (ANI): English actress Myleene Klass showed that she is a natural when it comes to staying underwater for a long time, as seen from pictures of her underwater dive.
The stunner stayed underwater for a day to find out how underwater scenes are filmed.
She did so as a part of her monthly CNN International film programme, The Screening Room .
The 30-year-old TV presenter looked effortlessly graceful as she swam around in a white and gold Grecian dress with no oxygen mask .
For the dive, a special stunts team trained the mother-of-one, and she revealed that the underwater swim was “exhausting” as she was made to wear three weight belts to keep her on the ocean floor.
I found the stunt a lot more exhausting and physical than I expected it to be, the Sun quoted her as saying.
I was wearing three weight belts to keep me on the sea bed and I had to keep equalising, yet try and look graceful.
My dress kept floating up over my head, my hair kept getting in my mouth and my eyes went red in the water. Being underwater was emotionally really liberating though.
The only scary bit was when I thought the diving instructor was to the left of me, but he was to the right. I swam around looking for him but by the time I got to him I had no air left, it was a bit freaky.
When I got outside, I looked like a giant prune, she said. (ANI)
