Madonna: “I’m not sure Andrew Lloyd Webber even wanted me in Evita.” But he immediately denied.
The filming of “Evita” will be one of the central parts of the movie.
Madonna revealed that she “was totally and utterly intimidated by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice and the story of Eva Perón, the real historical story, and living up to all the great singers and actresses who had played her before me.”
She added, “I think I had a few nervous breakdowns worrying that I was going to be fired every day, basically.”
When a fan asked her if Andrew Lloyd Webber was “nice,” Madonna replied, “No, he wasn’t. He was not nice to me. I’m not sure he even wanted me in the movie. Thank God, Alan Parker did.”
But Andrew Lloyd Webber immediately denied it.
In a statement to EW, a spokesman for Andrew Lloyd Webber said: “She must have Andrew confused with somebody else. Andrew and Madonna had a very smooth and productive working relationship on the Evita film.”
On February 5, 2020, Andrew Lloyd Webber attended Madonna‘s Madame X Tour at The Palladium in London. That night, Madonna exceptionally performed “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” for him.
