It was almost a full family affair when Madonna arrived at the premiere of her new film.
The Queen of Pop was flanked by director husband Guy Ritchie and their two excited children, Lourdes, 10, and Rocco, six, at the event.
But little David Banda, whose adoption from Malawi caused controversy after Madonna was accused of using her international stature to speed up the process, stayed at home “sleeping”.
She said: “It was great fun. I got to voice the character while sitting there in my tracksuit.”
Asked what attracted her most to the character, pop’s most powerful woman answered: “I like how tough she is and that she knows how to use a sword.”
She said of the film: “I like the fact that the good guys win in the end.”
Asked how 15-month-old David was, she replied: “He’s wonderful thank you. He’s sleeping.”
Madonna, wrapped up from the cold in a Dolce & Gabbana black coat with bronze buttons and heels designed by her friend Stella McCartney, spent 20 minutes outside the Leicester Square cinema where fans waited to see her.
Teenage star Freddie Highmore, who plays Arthur in Arthur and The Invisibles, was also at the screening. “I like to say I’m a normal kid, but then if I say that people say it’s not very normal to fly around the world to make films.” He added: “Everyone says Madonna is very nice, hopefully I’ll get to meet her later.”
The film is directed by Luc Besson, who joked: “Freddie is a genius, you are very lucky to have him and David Beckham.
“But you don’t have Beckham any more. You exchanged him for Madonna and you won, although she doesn’t play football.”
He confirmed that he did not want to make any more films saying: “Ten films is enough. I’ve been in this business for 30 years. It’s a long time.”
