21 Years Later Patti Lupone Finally Says What She Thought Of Madonna’s EVITA: “It was a piece of shit.”

Now 21 years after the movie was version of EVITA was released Patti LuPone, who played Evita in the original Broadway production in 1979 and won a Tony for it, sat down with Andy “Can you believe he’s a top?” Cohen on Watch What Happens Live! on Tuesday night the grand diva let loose on Madonna’s Evita and her acting skills in general.

Said LuPone: “I was on the treadmill when MTV used to have videos, and I saw, I believe it was  “Buenos Aires”, and I thought it was a piece of sh-t.”

She went on: “Madonna is a movie killer. She’s dead behind the eyes. She cannot act her way out of a paper bag. She should not be on film or on stage. She is a wonderful performer for what she does but she is not an actress. Bang.”

Waiter!  Scratching post for one!
