London, Jan 10 (ANI): Madonna has revealed that she has never felt as much loved as Wallis Simpson did by King Edward VIII.
The pop queen turned film director said that she believes men “want power” and that they will “kill to have it”.
But the 53-year-old singer claimed that King Edward VIII, who she denied was a Nazi sympathiser and whose relationship with the American divorcee is the subject of her new film was an exception.
The star’s movie, ‘W.E’, features a modern-day American woman, Wally, trapped in a loveless marriage and obsessed with her namesake, Mrs Simpson.
“When she (Wally) says ‘I wonder what it was like to have been loved that much?’ I think I probably said that to myself,” the Mirror quoted the singer as telling the Radio Times.
“Men want power and they will kill to have it.
“If you look back in history, how many wars have been waged to win the throne? And here’s a man who walked away from that for love.
“And so for a romantic like me, I would say: ‘Wow, to be loved like that!’ And Wally feels the same way – she wants to be loved like that.
“What Edward gave up was huge, monumental, but I also don’t think that he realised that when he abdicated he was never going to be allowed to come back into the country.
“I’ve been asked many times if I would give up everything for love.
“And I think it’s important to understand that with love, and in all relationships, you have to give up something,” she added. (ANI)
