Heather Graham finds stripping ‘inspiring’May 29th, 2009 - 4:29 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 29 (ANI): Actress Heather Graham finds stripping “inspiring”, and wants women to do the sexy act so that they feel good about themselves.
The stunner, who plays an exotic dancer in new comedy The Hangover, has confessed that her pole dancing preparation was easy because she’s had lessons before.
Graham hooked up with actress and stripper teacher Sheila Kelley for pole dancing classes, reports The Daily Express.
She reveals, “I had taken this female empowerment class and Sheila Kelley came in and talked about her classes. I had actually taken her classes because my friend taught one of them. She worked at the Mayor’s office and quit her job to become a pole-dancing instructor.
“For this film I went back and took some refresher courses. It’s a dance class but they teach you pole dancing moves and it reminded me how great it is… It’s for any kind of woman, women of all different ages and sizes.
“As a woman, it’s inspiring because any woman can feel sexy and you’re cheering each other on. You’re not doing it for like, ‘Oh, just give me a tip.’ Usually people wear shorts and a tank top or a bra and you just cheer each other on. You’re doing it to feel good about yourself and see other women feel good about themselves.” (ANI)
