5 Celebrities Who Enjoy Pole Dancing

While some feel like pole dancing is a sleazy or inappropriate hobby, there are plenty of women who are using the sexy dance method as a way to get fit and gain confidence, and that includes some celebrities.  Actress Emilia Fox fully endorses pole dancing as she feels as though it is an amusing activity which has also boosted her confidence. Amy Smart often does pole dancing for fun and finds it is very sexually liberating and a great way to keep fit too. Emma Watson is the latest star who has reportedly taken up pole dancing and is said to be happy with the results!

Amy Smart

Amy learned how to pole dance for her part in ‘Crank’ but ended up really enjoying it: “It was sexually liberating and really fun. It takes a lot of work to make it look easy. It’s really awkward in the beginning but I had fun. At one point I wondered if I would ever pick it up. I loved my routine to Billy Squire’s song Stroke Me. That’ll get you going on the pole! Prior to working on this film I had taken a few classes of pole dancing and strip tease at the S Factor here in Los Angeles. It’s a really great place for women because it’s very sexual and very female empowering. I think I’ll get back into that because it was a great work-out and a great class, and there’s no mirrors so you don’t have to feel insecure watching yourself seeing how you look; you just sort of feel it in your body.”

Jennifer Love Hewitt

Jennifer Love Hewitt enjoys pole dancing and baking, and even likes to combine the two sometimes: ”It’s a great way to get in touch with your sexuality. I also love to cook, so I can have a cake in the oven while I do a pole dance.”

Eva Longoria

Eva Longoria was bad at pole dancing to begin with after a fellow celeb gifted her a pole: “Carmen Electra has these stripper poles that she sells. She sent me one for Valentine’s Day and told me to have fun. So I set it up myself and it is supposed to fit any ceiling. I got on it to swing and, ‘Whack!’ I fell on the floor so I never really got good at it.” After the experience however, Eva reportedly got some lessons and started to enjoy the hobby.

Emma Watson

According to a source, Emma started pole dancing during her spare time while filming ‘The Bling Ring’: ”Like on all film sets, there’s often so much time spent doing nothing. One of the other actresses on the set has been pole-dancing as a sport for a while and Emma decided to give it a go as well. She’s amazed with the results because it has toned up her body so well. She never thought she would enjoy it but she finds it quite liberating.”

Emilia Fox

Emilia believes it is a great hobby that gives you more body confidence: “It taught me how to feel confident about my body so that dancing came naturally. I wouldn’t encourage any woman to get involved in the sex trade, but I’d highly recommend they try pole dancing or striptease for their own amusement, and that of their partner.”
