Birthday Boy Perez royally wrong about Madonna movie

Truth rating: 0

By Michael Lewittes



Ewan McGregor is the latest actor to sign on to the upcoming Madonna-directed film W.E.,” reports Perez Hilton, adding, “McGregor will play Edward VIII who abdicated the throne in 1936 to marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson.”

After noting that Madonna also co-wrote the film, Perez writes, “We absolutely adore her as a musical artist, but we’re not holding our breath for a hit film… But maybe she’ll prove us wrong with these casting choices?”

Uh, speaking of “wrong” and “casting”…

McGregor is NOT in W.E. A rep for the actor tells Gossip Cop he is “not doing” the film.

Well, now that Perez blew this story, maybe he should just concentrate on blowing out some candles.

Happy Birthday, Perez, from the entire Gossip Cop team!
