Lourdes Appears In Madonna's W.E.!
My current column is a diatribe about the weirdness inherent in being a celebrity spawn, and that goes triple for Lourdes Ciccone (whom I love and am rooting for, by the way--she's got a lot of legend to live up to).
Well, a while ago, it was revealed that Lourdes is playing a small part in the Madonna-directed period film W.E., which is a sort of Julie & Julia type thing alternating between Wallis Simpson and Wally, a modern woman obsessed with her.
Reportedly, Lourdes (billed as Lola Leon) was playing the young version of Wally.
But someone else who swears he's seen the film claims:
"We see Lourdes in a bit part as a Welsh peasant girl.
"In newsreel footage, we see Prince Edward visiting a Welsh mining town, where Lourdes greets him wearing a babushka.
"I thought he'd strolled into Bolivia by mistake.
"She looks about as Welsh as Fyvush Finkel."
And I look as red-faced as W.C. Fields right now because this "source" is obviously a hoaxer.
But either way, Lourdes is a bonafide movie star, thanks to her prodigious mama.
I guess W.E. are family.
