Madonna EXCLUSIVE: What she’s REALLY like to work with from the stars of W.E

Madonna is known to be a lot of things — a record-smashing pop star, Golden-Globe winning actress, Gwyneth Paltrow's best mate and more recently a director. But who actually knows the real Madonna?

In a mission to find out who the 53-year-old really is, omg! asked the stars of her latest venture into movie making, W.E, what it's like to work for her.

Pretty fanciable James D'Arcy, who plays King Edward in the movie, said: "[Madonna's] work ethic is second to none.

MadonnaWork ethic: The stars of W.E admired Madonna's dedication to filming

"There was so much passion starting at the top it was impossible not to feel that infection.

"She was as prepared and as professional as anyone I've ever worked with."

James speaks from experience too having starred opposite Daniel Craig and added Secret Diary of a Call Girl and Silent Witness to his CV.

W.EVintage vibe: W.E showcases incredible fashion

Madonna's love biopic, W.E follows the controversial relationship between King Edward VIII and American divorcee Wallis Simpson.

This is intertwined with a somewhat distracting dual storyline set in the 90s of Wally (played by Abbie Cornish), a woman who becomes obsessed with the Duchess of Windsor's possessions.

Wallis is played by the incredibly talented Andrea Riseborough who got the chance to wear an awe-inspiring vintage-inspired and couture wardrobe.

Naturally we had to ask her what it was like to wear such pieces …but our chat focused on the original royal jewellery the actress wore and the six security guards that came with it!

W.E is in cinemas 20 January
