We were more than impressed with the trailer for the upcoming, Christina Aguilera-starring film “Burlesque,” but one actress we wish we could have seen more of was Kristen Bell. Fortunately, MTV’s Fall Movie Preview Week obliged, and we have a brand new still from the film featuring Kristen in her burlesque get-up.
Kristen plays Nikki, the arch nemesis to Christina’s super-talented Ali. Considering the club’s burlesque theme didn’t include singing until Ali showed up, we’re not surprised Nikki flies into a jealous rage when she’s inevitably pushed out of the spotlight by Ali. We like to see Kristen Bell when she’s angry (ever see her turn as a villain in “Heroes”?!), and we can’t wait to see her fury in “Burlesque!”
Also, can we talk about how in love we are with Kristen’s dark ’do here? Maybe we’re crazy, but is the contrast between Kristen’s raven hair and Christina’s light locks symbolic? A subtle allusion to good versus evil? Maybe?
Are you looking forward to “Burlesque”? Do you like seeing Kristen as a villain?
