Buck Wolf’s Weird News Central: Marisa Tomei Hula Hoops To Stripper Stardom

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Hula hoops are hardly sex toys, but they did help Marisa Tomei prepare for her most revealing role yet.

The Oscar-winning actress plays a stripper in the upcoming movie The Wrestler, and she used a childhood plaything to get sexy moves down.

Tomei tells journalist Buck Wolf, “The hula hoop really opens everything up, especially the hips. I’d start hooping in my trailer, then go on set.”

The actress took her first topless role last year in Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead, and to prepare, she interviewed several strippers.

She says, “All the girls say it’s empowering, and when you see a guy with the ‘I’m-gonna-give-you- money’ look, you realize what that’s like.”

Tomei thinks other women might benefit from a hula hoop workout and schemes, “I kind of want to go on QVC and make the kind of money I never make on these independent movies.”
