Pas de demi-mesure pour Madonna pendant qu'elle fait son film "W.E.".

No half measures for Madonna while making her film about the Abdication Crisis.
Striving for authenticity in recreating Edward’s Thirties encounter with poverty-stricken Welsh miners, when he declared: ‘Something must be done...’, Madge insisted on a Welsh-speaking actor to greet the feckless prince.
When a thespian delivered the line ‘How are you, Sir?’ (‘Shwd i chi, Syr?’, since you ask), Madge was in raptures.
Says my man with the clapperboard: ‘She kept repeating the phrase, and then asked: “Is Welsh a Celtic language?”’
