Madonna has said that being married to and friends with "a few directors" has taught her a lot about directing.
The pop singer's debut feature film has been screened in New York ahead of its general release.
'W.E' tells the story of King Edward, the uncle of Queen Elizabeth II, who gave up the throne to marry twice-divorced American Wallis Simpson.
"I've been on a few film sets in my day. I've been married to a few directors and I've been friends with a lot of directors. I've picked up some tips along the way. I've paid attention," she said.
