Once More Into the Groove: Desperately Seeking Susan Turns 25

Pugs in the city....and on the set of W.E.

Patti Whittier writes on her blog about how she (and her pugs) got picked to become extras on Madonna's W.E. earlier this month:

My dogs have gotten me a lot here. Friends, more friends and now a movie role. Well, a role as an extra, and I got to see Madonna, up close. And I have to say, she is fabulous. Tiny, thin, beautiful skin, looking fantastic in jeans, white tee, white leather Adidas and funky glasses.

I had to sit and wait outside because Madonna had to approve my hair, makeup and wardrobe. That’s when I first saw her. She came towards me and said, 'where is hair? Fix this flippy thing.' She touched my hair and then walked away. Hair came over and tucked in this piece of hair, put more hairspray on it and done.

Please elaborate on how "tiny" she is. Can you estimate as you were up close and personal? Is she 5'1" or 5'4"? No one seems to really be clear on this.

That must have been a thrill for you.

Cool story. "Fix this flippy thing." LOL. Love it.


Wonder how it felt to literally have a one on one with someone so famous even briefly... Cool
