Madonna persuaded actor RICHARD E. GRANT to appear in her directorial debut FILTH AND WISDOM by flirting with him. The singer - married to director Guy Ritchie - used her feminine charms to coax The Gosford Park star into appearing in the movie. Grant says, "I respond well to flattery. Flattery and money. "Madonna flirted with me to get me to make her new film, Filth and Wisdom. She's a terrible flirt and very attractive. "I was bewitched, so of course I fell at her feet."
