Dita Von Teese would choose Scarlett Johansson as burlesque dancer

Los Angeles: Actress-designer Dita Von Teese, known as Queen of Burlesque, says given a chance she would pick actress Scarlett Johansson to be a burlesque dancer.

The 40-year-old said the 28-year-old actress was fixated with her during a show and the feeling was mutual.

"If I had to pick one of today`s celebrities to be a burlesque dancers, I`d chose Scarlett Johansson. She came to one of my (burlesque) shows once, she was sitting front row with her mouth agape and she couldn`t take her eyes off of me," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Teese as saying.

"She has a great body and you can see that she has a good relationship with her own sexuality," she added.

Teese, who believes every artist should have their own character and style, was also full of praise for a number of other A-listers who have made their mark in the entertainment industry, including Madonna and Lady Gaga.

"I`m from Detroit (Michigan) and Madonna is from around there. She`s been the person who influenced my career the most, she`s interesting, she`s an icon.

"I love Lady Gaga and her eccentric spirit. She`s fascinating and charming, but there will never be another Madonna," she added.
