all about Madonna

How Madonna Helped Rosie O’Donnell Book Sleepless In Seattle

“Well, I had just done A League of Their Own and I was hoping to get another movie role. But A League of Their Own was not out yet. And Nora Ephron’s young son Jacob, who is now a grown gay man, he was in his teens, and he was a big fan of Madonna. So when Nora went to dinner that night and said to her kids ‘I auditioned this young woman, I think I like her. Her name is Rosie O’Donnell’ Jacob said ‘Oh my god, she’s friends with Madonna, I love her!’ So I blame my gay icon friend Madonna and gay Jacob for getting me the role.” (Rosie O’Donnell)
