Now in the burlesque cast: drug addiction, a hidden cancer diagnosis, and a £105 wedding.
This is a risqué female film. Burlesque was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture and starred a number of Hollywood stars, but where have the cast members gone in the intervening 11 years? It’s been 11 years since the campy musical film Burlesque debuted in 2010, yet it still has a devoted following.
Many of the show’s stars went on to have great success in the profession, but many of them also had to deal with rough personal situations.
The Hollywood actors have just as much drama off-screen as they do in their movies, with drug addiction and a secret cancer struggle.
Cher, Christina Aguilera, and Hollywood royalty Stanley Tucci were among those who performed.
To commemorate the film’s tenth anniversary, Brinkwire looks back at what the cast did next.
Christina, a singing sensation who soared to stardom in the early 2000s and was awarded most successful female singer in 2003, is credited with revitalizing teen pop music at the time.
Despite her impressive career, which has garnered her five Grammy Awards and a plaque on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame, the pop princess’ love life has not been as easy.
Jordan Bratman and Christina Aguilera met when she was 21 years old in 2002, and they married three years later in a ceremony that reportedly cost (dollar)2 million (£1.48 million).
Christina said to People magazine in 2010: “It seemed totally appropriate at the time. Jordan and I started off as best friends, and then it evolved into something more. He embodied the traits of stability, affection, and security that I never had from a masculine figure when I was younger. I had the impression that we could spend the rest of our lives together.” Unfortunately, Aguilera and Bratman’s marriage did not have a Hollywood ending, as they divorced in 2010, the same year that Burlesque was released. They have a child together.
Christina has been engaged to Matthew Rutler, whom she met on the set of Burlesque in 2010, for seven years and with whom she has a kid.
In 2015, she told E! about their lengthy relationship: “We don’t need a wedding to prove our love or commitment because our love is strong enough. For the time being, we are content with our daughter, our family, and our career.” Cher’s career has gone from humble beginnings as one half of the folk-rock husband and wife combo Sonny and Cher to dominating the charts and garnering worldwide recognition. The news is summarized by Brinkwire.
