Christina Aguilera felt confined with film role: 'The writing was full of clichés'

Vocal powerhouse Christina Aguilera has elaborated on her experience as an actress in the 2010 movie 'Burlesque' and explained that she felt restricted while working on the film because the writing was very obvious.

Last week, Aguilera said that she wanted to portray more unexpected characters if she continues pursuing an acting career and has now revealed to Billboard that being part of 'Burlesque' was great, but the role she played was a cliché that didn't allow her to be creative:

"I do want to do more acting. I would want to do something where I could sink my teeth into something more challenging and gritty - outside of music." She continued: "Ali - that character I played - actually did sort of take me out of myself because it made me revisit a time where I was so wide eyed and she was so vulnerable, and sometimes I just wanted to slap her. She was so naive."

"I learned so much, that wasn't an easy set to be a part of [...] I liked it, but at the same time Ali got really... I was very confined," she said. "I didn't want to play it (the role) so cliché even though some of the writing might have been!"
