Madonna: 'W.e. Was Not Fun To Make'
Madonna admits working on 'W.E.' "wasn't fun".
The 52-year-old singer wrote, produced, cast and directed the movie and found it to be incredibly difficult, though she learned a lot from the experience.
She said: "I researched and co-wrote the screenplay and I cast the film and then I produced it because I couldn't find a suitable producer in time before shooting, and then I had to direct it within 52 days.
"It was not fun at all. It was all-encompassing and gut-wrenchingly hard and very educational."
Despite finding it tough, Madonna is hoping to make more films in the future.
She added: "I love directing. I love all aspects of it and I Hope to make another film.
"Sure - I feel the pressure now, just as when I began in my music career. I had to earn my way and to be taken seriously. I hope this is only the beginning for me."
The 'Hung Up' singer spent a long time working on the project before it went into development because she wanted to craft a "complex" story.
She explained: "It was a very complex idea I had. I didn't want to make a straightforward biopic, so I invented a modern-day story too, of a New Yorker called Wally Winthrop, which gave me a frame with which to weave back and forth between the two stories."
