Madonna gives daughter Lourdes big screen debut

First she collaborated with her mom on the Material Girl clothing line and now Lourdes Leon is starring in Madonna's new movie. The 14-year-old aspiring entertainer is set to make her big-screen debut in the Madonna-directed film "W.E."

According to MTV News, "W.E." chronicles the 1930s romance of King Edward VIII and scandalous American socialite Wallis Simpson, who would go on to become the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. The film also follows a modern-day woman, Wally Winthrop, who is fascinated by their love story.

Lourdes, whose father is actor/personal trainer Carlos Leon, was spotted wearing a schoolgirl uniform on the movie's set last September, and now Abbie Cornish, who portrays Wally, has the details on the teen's role.

"She actually plays a younger version of my character," Cornish tells MTV. "She's a super-cute, younger version of my character."

Though Cornish didn't share scenes with Lourdes, she did enjoy working with Her Madgesty.

"Madonna is a natural director," she says. "It's in her nature. She's a Leo and she really represents the Leos very well. She's a very smart woman, very well read. She really absorbs a lot about whatever she's involved in. I think she really loves learning. It was interesting to see her evolve throughout the filmmaking process. She's such a cool woman."

    I am a straight man who LOVES Madonna to death. She is not just for gay men and butch women. She has been a huge inspiration to me. That said, I wish she would not shove her daugher in our faces. I love how she shielded her kids from the spotlight, but not anymore.

    I thnk little Lourdes needs an educaton on what a tramp her mom is. Lourdes, if you are reading this just be aware your mom is pure trash and deserves to be buried in a landfill.

      Uh huh, and um where should you be buried. People who have nothing better to do than trash celebs are the stupid ones. Grow up and find your own life; stop being jealous of the success someone else has achieved. Stupid idiot.
