Madonna ‘a gifted actress’, says Thandie Newton

Thandie Newton has defended Madonna’s ill-received movie career – insisting the pop superstar is a talented actress.

The ‘Crash’ star says many critics underestimate Madonna’s acting skills – and that she will be remembered as a talented thespian.

The singer won critical acclaim for 1985’s ‘Desperately Seeking Susan’ and in 1997 landed a Golden Globe award for her role in ‘Evita’.

But her acting career has also been plagued with a string of box office flops including 2002’s ‘Swept Away’.

Newton said: “Actually I think Madonna is a great actress and it’s only in years to come will people see that. But for me, she is truly gifted.”
