David Harbour recalled her long-time crush had asked him to audition for her film W.E. because she found him sexy.
Per PageSix, Stranger Things star said on Jimmy Kimmel Live! revealed he was approached by a casting director who cryptically asked him to do a "top-secret movie read-through" in a room at the St. Regis hotel, where all would "be revealed," adding "I was like, 'This is really weird and creepy,'" he recalled.
The 47-year-old said the casting director told him that a director had watched his 2008 movie Revolutionary Road and liked it.
"'You have a sex scene in it, and they thought you were sexy,'" he recounted.
The Black Widow star added, "And so, all weekend, I was literally thinking about Ridley Scott and Martin Scorsese,"
"I show up at St. Regis, and I get in the room, and there's a bunch of other New York actors there, and in walks Madonna, who's directing this movie. The first thing that flooded over me, I was like, 'Wow, Madonna thinks I'm sexy,'" he recalled.
Harbour called it a "truly harrowing, exciting experience" because he'd had a crush on the pop star since seeing her Open Your Heart music video in 1986 when he was 11.
