A Word Of Warning To LFF Volunteers


"Sounds like Madonna was all smiles and compliments for Canada in general and TIFF in particular, when she visited the festival Monday to promote her new film, W.E., about famous divorcĂ©, the Duchess of Windsor, Wallis Simpson. 

One observer even heard her thank the festival's orange-shirted volunteers.
It was a bit of a different story backstage, however, when eight of those volunteers were asked to turn their faces to a wall so that they would not look at the pop-star-turned-movie-director as she made her way to her press conference about the film. One volunteer told the Globe they all dutifully stood with their backs to her as she passed."


And if you care about your life at all, don't give her hydrangeas.
