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.
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."
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?"
