Scarlett Johansson has heaped praise on Marilyn Manson's estranged wife Dita Von Teese in the pages of porn magazine Penthouse.
A past photospread featuring the burlesque star graces the pages of April's (07) Penthouse and Von Teese also appears on the cover in fetching green and black lingerie, under the teaser, "See what Manson's Missing!'
Accompanying the sexy photos, taken before Von Teese became Mrs BRIAN WARNER (Manson's real name), are tributes from the dancer's celebrity fans.
Johansson, who was inspired by Von Teese, real name HEATHER SWEET, when she stepped up onstage at Los Angeles' Viper Room to join THE Pussycat Dolls burlesque revue in 2004, says she has always been charmed by the raven-haired beauty's erotic charms.
The actress writes, "I think she's incredibly beautiful, really talented. It's amazing the way she transforms herself. It's a creation all its own. I think it's unbelievably stimulating.
"That kind of visual, that fetish imagery tastefully done is so erotic."
Meanwhile, another celebrity fan, designer CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN, calls Von Teese "a true modern aristocrat."
The stunning spread features 11 sexy shots of the burlesque superstar in various states of undress, and comes as she battles a divorce with Manson, who she announced she was splitting from at Christmas (06).
