We don’t actually have idea of why she talked about this and when, but actress Thandie Newton has defended Madonna’s movie career – insisting she is a talented actress, the press reports today.
Newton, who won a BAFTA award as Best Supporting Actress in 2006 for her role in “Crash“, says many critics underestimate Madonna’s acting skills – and that she will be remembered as a talented thespian.
“Madonna won critical acclaim for 1985’s Desperately Seeking Susan and in 1997 landed a Golden Globe award for her role in Evita- but her acting career has also been plagued with a string of box office flops including 2002’s Swept Away,” FemaleFirst.co.uk reports today.
“But Newton says, “Actually I think Madonna is a great actress and it’s only in years to come will people see that. But for me, she is truly gifted.”
