My wife got a call from the French Embassy. They knew I knew Madonna. The French have an organization, Aidez les Enfants Malades, that is similar to our ‘Make A Wish’ Foundation. They had arranged a tour of Hollywood for selected children and an actor had finked out and wasn’t available. They asked if we could contact Madonna to replace this hack. My wife called Madonna’s office. Madonna said, ‘Is two this afternoon too late?’
I’ll never forget that kindness.
Ironically, her last line in the Pepsi spot was ‘Make a wish.’
