Vanessa Paradis' Dirty Dancing
Vanessa Paradis has revealed she was delighted when she found out she would have to learn dance moves from the film 'Dirty Dancing' for her new movie.
Vanessa Paradis was happy to learn the 'Dirty Dancing' routine for a film role.
The French actress - who portrays Juliette, a big fan of the 80s cinematic favourite in 'Heartbreaker' - enjoyed the scenes where Alex, portrayed by Romain Duris, uses the famous sequence to try and seduce her character.
She said: "The 'Dirty Dancing' was such a plus. Learning that dance was something I was looking forward to when I read the script. Although I wasn't as big a fan of 'Dirty Dancing' as Juliette is, the film was so much part of my generation and my childhood."
Romain also enjoyed the scene - despite having never seen the movie, where Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey's characters performed the original routine.
He said: "It was so funny. We could only rehearse on the set but it was a good atmosphere so we didn't feel the pressure. Vanessa and I love to dance, so, yes, it was hard work but it was playful, too. And very pleasurable to do it.
I didn't know 'Dirty Dancing' beforehand ... But I am a big fan of that period, the 80s. I love a lot of American movies of that period. I love the style, you know?"
