Madonna on Her New Film 'W.E': 'I Could be off Gardening Right Now"

Madonna says she’s having trouble adjusting to the stresses and demands of being a filmmaker – and longs for a little time in her garden.

“It seems like the whole world is against you,” Madonna told filmmaker Gus Van Sant, who chatted with the Material Mom in Interview magazine’s May issue about her upcoming film, W.E. – which she is thick in the process of writing and directing.

“I’ve never had that experience before, because making records and putting my shows together – except at the very beginning of my career, I’ve never really experienced much resistance,” she continued. “But when you make a movie, it seems like there’s nothing but resistance. It’s kind of a miracle that any movie ever gets made. Every other day, it’s like, ‘What am I doing? This is insane. I could be off gardening right now. This is too stressful. Who do I think I am? Why am I putting myself through all of this punishment?’ That’s what it feels like-for me, anyway.”
