Scarlett Johansson couldn't take her eyes off Dita Von Teese when she saw her burlesque show.

The 40-year-old model and dancer - known as Queen of Burlesque - said the 28-year-old actress was fixated with her during a show, and the feeling was mutual, as Dita thinks she'd make a great dancer.

She said: ''If I had to pick one of today's celebrities to be a burlesque dancers I'd chose Scarlett Johansson. She came to one of my [burlesque] shows once, she was sitting front row with her mouth agape and she couldn't take her eyes off of me.

''She has a great body and you can see that she has a good relationship with her own sexuality.''

Dita - who believes every artist should have their own character and style - was also full of praise for a number of other A-Listers who have made their mark in the entertainment industry, including Madonna, who was her source of inspiration and, Lady GaGa, has a unique trademark.

She added: ''I'm from Detroit (Michigan) and Madonna is from around there. She's been the person who influenced my career the most, she's interesting; she's an icon.

''I love Lady Gaga and her eccentric spirit. She's fascinating and charming, but there will never be another Madonna''.
