Managed to dodge her three burly minders and grab a photo op and a quick chat with Madonna at the Toronto Film Festival.
She was there to promote W.E, the movie she has directed about Wallis Simpson and King Edward, so she was all smiles and friendliness as she told me she had consulted her ex-husbands, Sean Penn and Guy Ritchie before starting work on the movie. They had both given her useful advice, she said.
Some of the volunteers at the festival didn't find her so friendly however, and one complained that they were told to stand and face the wall as she walked down the corridor so they could not look at her. Madge later denied issuing any such orders and festival officials blamed it on the private security company she hired.
It seems that whenever Madonna steps out in public controversy is not far away.
