Patti LuPone Calls Madonna a 'Movie Killer,' Throws Shade at Glenn Close & Movie Musicals

Broadway legend Patti LuPone didn’t hold back at all during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen!

The two-time Tony winner and current nominee for War Paint was asked what she thought of Madonna‘s performance in the movie version of Evita. If you didn’t know, Patti originated the role of Eva Peron on Broadway.

“Well, I was on the treadmill and when MTV used to have videos, I saw, I believe it was ‘Buenos Aires,’ and I thought it was a piece of sh-t. Madonna is a movie killer,” Patti said. “She’s dead behind the eyes. She cannot act her way out of a paper bag. She should not be in film or on stage. She’s a wonderful performer for what she does, but she is not an actress.”
