Kim Cattrall paid masseuse $250 a week just to talk

entertainment Updated: Jul 29, 2011 20:06 IST

Actress Kim Cattrall has revealed that she paid a masseuse 250 dollars a week to speak to her so that she could pick up the right accent for her role in ‘Meet Monica Velour’.

The British-born actress, who was struggling to adapt the right dialect for her role as an ageing former porn star-turned-stripper in the new movie, said she was happy to pay the huge sum when she found someone who had the accent she was trying to mimic.

“The most difficult thing was to find Monica's dignity. She smokes, she drinks. She's from the South, so the voice had to be huskier than mine,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

“I eventually found a masseuse who had just the right voice. I was paying her 250 dollars a week just to listen to her speak,” she added.
