Cher: 'I've never watched 'Burlesque'

2014-03-29
Cher has claimed that she has never watched her most recent film, Burlesque. The legendary diva starred alongside Christina Aguilera in the movie musical, which opened in 2010 to mostly poor critical reviews. It went on to gross a disappointing - though not disastrous - $90 million (£54 million) at the box office worldwide. Asked by a fan on Twitter when she last watched the film, Cher responded in classic Cher fashion: Screen Shot 2014-03-29 at 14.34.49 Cher expressed her disappointment with how the film turned out during an interview with The Guardian​ last year (2013), saying: "It could have been a much better film. It was always sad that it was not a good film." She went on to lay blame on writer/director Steve Antin. "Terrible director! Really terrible director. And really terrible script," she said. "I remember him saying to me, I don't care about what you say, I just want to shoot the dance numbers. Had it been shorter, it would have squeaked by and been a really good popcorn movie." > Cher apologises for coming onstage late in classic Cher style
