Harvey Weinstein Defends Madonna's W.E.!

harvey weinstein defends madonnas we

You hear that, people? Harvey is on Team Madge and NOBODY f***s with Harvey! LOLz!

During a recent interview, Harvey Weinstein opened up about Madonna's film W.E., and he responded to the harsh criticism that it's been receiving.

Here's what he had to say:

"Of all the movies this year that have gotten a bad shake from the critics this is the one. And I think it’s Madonna. I think they see the personality behind the film. You have extraordinary performances in the movie. There’s nobody can say Andrea Riseborough isn’t absolutely brilliant and one of our emerging great actresses."

"…And the rest of the cast is great. The setting, the lighting, the costumes, all of which is Madonna’s vision. And the music, the ballsiness to put The Sex Pistols into a period piece."

And more from Harvey:

"I wanted to take the adventure with her. She did a damn good job and she’s getting a bad shake from people. The great thing about sending out the DVDs is, you get audience reaction, unfiltered and with no critics in front of the movie. People call me all the time and go, wow, I really enjoyed it."

"So, if it wasn’t Madonna, if it was Joe Smith this movie would be getting three stars and about the director we would be saying wow, this is a talent to watch and a movie you should see. Of course, Madonna’s line is, I don’t want to be Joe Smith."

Well put, Harvey! Thanks for opening up about the film AND thanks for having Madge's back! We're sure she appreciates it!

What do U think? Do U agree with Harvey Weinstein's W.E. comments? Of course U agree with Harvey's comments! NOBODY defies Harvey! Ha!

    People can fuck with Harvey by not wasting their money on a film that's been heavily panned by ciritics.

    Didn't they already do that in Marie Antoinette as well? They were dancing in a ballroom scene to frickin' Siouxsie & The Banshees. Again, Madonna does nothing new!

    People start thinking for yourselves…Film Critics don't get it right all the time! I grew up watching Syskel and Ebert review movies and half the time if they gave a movie two thumbs down I ran to see it…and surprisingly so did MILLIONS of people! Half the time critics forget why many people go to movies - TO FORGET ABOUT THEIR LIVES! And to be entertained. Many moviegoers don't give a rats ass about lighting and cinematography. Did we laugh, cry, scream, or walk out not realizing how long we had been in those seats? Thats what 90% of the movie going public care about being entertained! So start thinking for yourselves and stop letting Critics chose your movies for you!

    I have been a huge Madonna fan for years and I'm sad to say that she went from being a visionary, talented, creative person to an annoying bitch. I think she deserves all the criticism that she gets.

    putting rock and roll in a period piece isnt ballsy. sofia coppola has done it with the strokes in marie antoinette

    Is this movie even playing anywhere?
    Here's the problem. No one cares about the affair of King Edward and Wallis Simpson.
    That is so 1930s. ~yawn~

    The sad reality - it is Madonna and she earned that reputation which follows her everywhere. There is something to be said for treating people with dignity and respect.

    I am still stuck on that hydrangea incident.

    People who have posted from the U.K. who saw it really enjoyed it. I will be seeing it Friday when it opens in the U.S.
