Madonna looks hot ... literally
Sing it! Madonna quotes from her own song lyric at W.E. press conference: "Happiness lies in your own hand." She was in a scrappy mood, correcting people's pronunciation and looked hot - literally - in a long-sleeved red dress in a stuffy press conference room. She even tried out a new song on the press: "We're making a movie, isn't it groovy?"
"I thought Edward VIII was very punk rock," Madonna added when asked why she used the Sex Pistols wail “Pretty Vacant" in a riotous party dance scene with Wallis.
Madonna was also wearing a birthday gift from the cast: A small diamond necklace spelling out W.E.
"My legs and my fingers are crossed," she says of the December release for W.E. in time for Oscar.
Madonna on cult of celebrity: so many rumours about Wallis were assumed true. "We often reduce... iconic figures to a sound bite."
