Christina Aguilera looked like a "car accident" during rehearsals for 'Burlesque'.

The singer - who makes her debut movie appearance as performer Ali in the forthcoming musical movie - confesses rehearsals for the dance routines in the movie took a toll on her body and she ended up bruised all over.

She said: "I had so many bruises every day, especially when I was whipping that long strand of diamonds around for 'Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend'.

"I smacked my leg so many times in rehearsal before I got it right. Getting down on my knees for some of the movements bruised me. I bruise easily, but I looked like I got in a car accident on some of the days after rehearsals."

Despite the injuries Christina caused herself on 'Burlesque', the 'Not Myself Tonight' hitmaker also reveals she now thinks of the sky as "the limit" and would like to appear in other movies should the opportunity come up.

She told Collider.com: "The sky is the limit. I'm just following where life takes me. It's been an incredible journey, thus far, and I know that this next chapter in my life, and doing this movie, opens up a whole new world of opportunity for me. I'm just excited to see where it goes."
