British GQ have reported that not everything went smoothly on the set of Die Another Day after Madonna joined the list of cameo roles in the film. It seems Madonna doesn’t quite like her old songs sung back to her, as Pierce Brosnan found out.
“She definitely pushes your button, and I made that mistake,” says Brosnan after his run-in with the title song singer. “The guys in the trailer were joking around the day that she was on set, singing Like a Virgin. I’m miles away, and I’m out there with my saber and she’s all dressed up in her costume and I forget that she’s there and I start singing Like A Virgin. And oh man, Jesus! That’s like a red rag to a bull. She thought that I was pulling her chain. She said, ‘Are you trying to dis me?’ and I said, ‘No, Madonna. No, for God’s sake, No!’ “
Despite Brosnan’s initial ‘dissing’ of Madonna, the rest of the shoot apparently went to plan.
