Patti LuPone Slams Madonna’s Acting



While on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen where [Tony & Grammy winner] Patti LuPone and Christopher Meloni were guests, a fan called in and asked to Lupone "Did you and Madonna ever have a conversation about your two iconic performances as Evita?" LuPone said no with Andy following up asking LuPone what did she think of Madonna's performance and Lupone says: “I thought it was a piece of s—. Madonna is a movie killer". She continues, “She’s dead behind the eyes. She couldn’t act her way out of a paper bag. She should not be on film or on stage. She’s a wonderful performer for what she does, but she is not an actress.”

LuPone portrayed Evita in the original 1979 Broadway production [where she won the Tony for Best Actress in a Musical] while Madonna was in the 1996's Evita [where she won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy]


ONTD, what do you think of Madonna's acting in Evita? or any of her films?
