Singer-actress Christina Aguilera made movie bosses of Burlesque stalk Cher until she agreed to sign up for the film. "I was the first one to sign up to the movie and I knew when her name was brought up in conversations to play Tess, I was like, 'Go after her, stalk her, sleep under her doorstep at night, she needs to be in this movie starring opposite me," dailystar.co.uk quoted her as saying.
Aguilera, however, says she was incredibly shy when the Believe superstar turned up on the sets. "I was a little embarrassed when I first met her. I walked up to her and I said, 'Hi Cher, nice to meet you, I'm the obsessed stalker that wants to drink your bath water," she said.
