Burlesque performer Dita Von Teese says even she has "unattractive" days
Dita Von Teese says even she has "unattractive" days.
The burlesque performer - who recently unveiled her underwear line with lingerie company Wonderbra - admits she often finds herself doubting her own beauty so much, she refuses to get up.
She said: "Like any woman, I have days where I look in the mirror and think, 'How can anyone find me attractive?' Some days there's nothing for it but to go back to bed, but mostly I try to put a face on and turn the day around. I try to remember we all have those moments - even people you admire."
Dita also revealed she hates it when she is targeted by anti-feminist groups who accuse her of being a sex object.
She added: "I've been called anti-feminist before and it makes me really mad. I don't do my job for men, I do it because I love the makeup, the costumes and the history of showgirls. How can someone have a problem with me when they will pay to see a film where an actress shows a nipple?"
