Queen of pop Madonna got her big Hollywood break in DESPERATELY SEEKING SUSAN by falling to her knees and begging for the role.

According to ORION PICTURES producer Mike Medavoy's new memoirs, the MATERIAL GIRL dropped to her knees before the 1985 film's head of production Barbara Boyle, stretched out her arms and offered to do anything to get the part.

Barbara reportedly replied, "I'm married and I'm straight," to which the fledgling star answered, "Well Barbara, you should try everything at least once!"
