She has been a model, a pop star, a fashion designer and even a pole dancer, and now Kate Moss has set her sights on becoming a ballerina. The supermodel is working on a duet with ”Sex And The City” star Mikhail Baryshnikov, who is regarded as one of the great ballet dancers of the modern era, reported Daily Mail online.
Moss will star in a short film with the 62-year-old Russian, with the working title ”Baryshnimoss”, made by the renowned choreographer and director Michael Clark. The 36-year-old has been taking private ballet lessons with Clark and is set to embark on a gruelling three-month training regime before filming starts in Marseille in July.
“It will be a movie made for them so she doesn”t have to be a prima ballerina, even though she is having classes. Baryshnikov is a beautiful man but he is in his 60s so you don”t ask him to jump really high or do this or do that,” said a source close to the supermodel.
Baryshnikov appeared alongside Sarah Jessica Parker in ”Sex And The City”, playing Carrie Bradshaw”s Russian artist boyfriend. Moss too has previously tried her hand at a number of artistic endeavours.
She has sung with ”Primal Scream” and her ex-boyfriend Pete Doherty”s band ”Babyshambles”, and made her acting debut in the 1999 film ”Blackadder: Back & Forth”. She has also launched her own fashion line for the High Street chain Topshop, and performed a pole dance in a pop video for The White Stripes.
