Madonna casts daughter Lourdes in role

madonna_lourdesMadonna has cast her daughter Lourdes, 13, in her new movie called W.E., based on the life of British royal King Edward VIII, who renounced the throne in order to marry American divorcée Wallis Simpson. This will mark Lourdes’ acting debut. She was previously asked to play a Hogwarts student in a Harry Potter film, but her mother wouldn’t allow it. An insider told the British paper The Sun: “She’s arranged for a small role for Lourdes. It’s not a significant part but it will give her a good taste of life in the movie business. Lourdes has made it clear she wants some kind of career in the entertainment industry and her mum is more than happy to help.” Other actors who have signed on to star in the film, which will be directed by Madonna, are Ewan McGregor, Vera Farmiga and Abbie Cornish.

    i think madonna is making a big mistake. this child is only 13 years old, she cant be mentally capable of making such a life changing decision. i think if madonna wanted to be a good mother she would teach her daughter that school should come first, perhaps get her to get a real job so she spends some time learning what its like for the rest of the world to earn money and then when she is of age allow her to make her own career choices. i think handing your kid a role in a movie that you have anything to do with isnt teaching your kid to work for what they want and to struggle the way people struggle. its not preparing her for the real world when she goes out and tries to pursue this career in movies her mother has no say in. i wonder if i even made any sense just now? i know what i meant, but do any of you? lol. in order to be prepared for the real world, one must first live within the real world. working on your mothers movie set (or in your mothers workplace) isnt going to prepare anyone for anything. i worked with a girl whos mother managed the timmies we were both at. when her daughter didnt show up for work, or called in sick, the mother left her on the schedule so she would be paid for the days she didnt work. when she took things without paying, came in late, was rude to the customers or employees (she was supervisor, go figure?) she was never penalized. working for your parents gives you an advantage you would never having working for a real boss. it should be forbidden.

    Honestly, I don’t think Madonna or Lourdes care about learning what it’s like for the rest of the world, or about the struggles of the average person.
