No matter how much success Madonna has enjoyed as the Queen of Pop, she always seems to be seeking validation as an actress. During the eighties Madge really made a run for movie star status; appearing in several films including Desperately Seeking Susan, Who’s That Girl and Shanghai Surprise alongside ex-hubby Sean Penn. She earned a Golden Globe for her starring role in 1996’s Evita but was then crushed by the critics in 2002 for her performance in hubby Guy Richie’s Swept Away.
