Melbourne: Dita Von Teese insists that she is an ordinary woman even though she is regarded as a glamour icon.

The Burlesque star says she fell in love with the golden-era Hollywood movies.

“I knew I was not a natural beauty and I was rather ordinary,” the Herald Sun quoted Von Teese as saying.

“I looked at those images and saw these women whose larger-than-life glamour came from creation and artifice,” she added.
