Abbie Cornish in awe of Madonna

Abbie Cornish says Madonna - her director in new movie 'W.E.' - is a 'strong, independent woman'.
Madonna has been praised for her 'strong, independent' attitude.
Actress Abbie Cornish is delighted to be working with the 51-year-old pop legend on forthcoming historical movie 'W.E.' - which the '4 Minutes' singer is writing and directing - and is very impressed by the star's focus.
She said: 'Madonna is a strong, independent woman who doesn't need a man to define her - and that's admirable.'
Abbie was particularly impressed by the historical knowledge that Madonna displayed when writing the film, which examines the relationship between former British monarch King Edward VIII and American divorcee Wallis Simpson.
The 27-year-old star added to the Daily Mail newspaper: 'She's studied every aspect of what happened with Wallis Simpson and Edward VIII.'
'It's a fascinating insight into class and romance. Madonna's created a contemporary woman - who I will play - called Wally, who is fascinated by what happened to Mrs. Simpson.'
