Michelle 'bruised' by stripper part
Michelle Ryan said she was left with bruises after preparing for her next role as a stripper.
The ex-EastEnders actress had to train to play a lapdancer in new film A Girl Walks Into A Bar, but said the pain and sacrifice was worth it.
"I play a stripper and had to go to a pole-dancing class to prepare - it was great fun and I have so much respect for the dancers, it is hard work," she told the Daily Telegraph.
Michelle, who starred in the US series of Bionic Woman, also revealed there is no man in her life at the moment, but admits to "a huge crush" on Larry David of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
