    Madonna is so thick-skinned!

    Reuters reports that Madonna said she doesn't mind critics taking aim at her filmmaking ability with her new film W.E., as long as the criticism is directed at her movie and not at the pop diva herself. That's a fair point.

    At the Toronto International Film Festival, where she is promoting her second film W.E., Madge said that she had to earn her reputation as a musician and she expects to do the same as a film director. She knows nothing comes easy in the entertainment biz.

    "I had the same kind of pressure when I began my music career," Madonna told reporters. "I was nervous, and I didn't know what to expect, and people didn't know what to expect."

    The consensus on W.E. is that while it has a visual appeal, it lacks focus and strong performances, hence the criticism.

    "I can tell when people are reviewing my film and when they're reviewing me personally," Madonna said when asked whether she cared about what critics thought. "So when they stick to the film, then I do care." Madge reads her own press, it appears.

    Are you planning to check out Madonna's W.E.?
