Does Madonna want to keep her daughter Lourdes from the glare of the spotlight? Yep. She reportedly banned her daughter from auditioning to be in the next ‘Harry Potter’ film.
The star stopped Lourdes, 9, from joining hundreds of other girls who tried out for the role of Luna Lovegood in new movie’Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix’. Lourdes, who is also known as Lola, was said to be desperate to audition after film bosses issued an open call for a new star.
But sources say Madonna wants her daughter to wait until she is older to decide what she wants to do with her future. An insider is quoted in Britain’s Daily Star newspaper as saying: “Lola printed off all the information and showed it to her mum. She’s convinced she has the other-worldly qualities Warner Brothers are looking for. “But Madonna pointed out they’re looking for girls aged between 13 and 16, so she is much too young.”
Way to go and crush your daughter’s dreams. Some how I think Lourdes will recover nicely.
