Aguilera Taps Into Painful Childhood For Film Debut

Singer-turned-actress CHRISTINA AGUILERA recalled painful memories from her childhood to make herself cry while filming her big screen debut, BURLESQUE.
Aguilera, who plays a struggling dancer in the upcoming film, drew upon her own experiences with an abusive father to conjure up the emotions needed to portray the character.
She tells Britain's OK! magazine, "The girl I play, Ali, has a rough past - her mother dies when she's very young and she's been in foster homes. I could relate to that pain, growing up in an abusive household.
"That gave me great motivation to provoke my tears for those scenes where I had to really pour it on. I felt it deeply, to go through a lot of those things that brought up a lot of painful memories."
