Madonna received support for W.E., the second film she has directed, from her ex-husbands. Since she was married to actor Sean Penn in the '80s and to director Guy Ritchie in the 'oos, it's obvious that Madge's exes know a thing or two about films!
The Associated Press also reports that Madge said the success of the Oscar-winning film The King's Speech gives audiences a reference point for her film.
Madonna's sophomore directorial effort tells the story of Wallis Simpson, the two-time American divorcee for whom Britain's King Edward XVI abdicated his throne in 1936. Sexy!
Madonna says the two films examine the same historic period from distinct points of view. She also told a news conference that she identifies with Simpson, because fame often reduces celebrities "to a soundbite."
Do you want to check out W.E.? I do.
