Los Angeles: Actress Amber Heard has confessed that her friends used to mock her by calling her “claw hands” while she was learning ballet routines for “The Danish Girl”.
The 29-year-old, who plays ballerina Oola alongside Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander in the pseudo-biographical drama film, discussed her strenuous ballet training for the movie while talking to chat show host James Corden on “The Late Late Show” on Wednesday, reports dailymail.co.uk.
“I wanted to train for it and there were some ballet sequences that we wanted to have the option to incorporate into the movie. I trained forever and I have two left feet. I’m the most clutsy person in the world. I have no – what do you call it? Grace,” she said.
The actress added: “I crammed about three months of solid training in, working my way up from the floor and learning the technical aspect of ballet. I’ve got these dances down, technically perfect. I’m learning all the moves, but the last thing we get to are the hands. I send videos to my friends so I get encouragement and look for their support and everyone shoots back ‘What’s with the claw hands?’.”
