Mandy Gonzalez: With Madonna, it was super coolby ZaCK, www.absolumentmadonna.fr
The New York Times asked several actors to reminisce about their own brushes with celebrity greatness, including Mandy Gonzalez who once met Madonna when she was a little girl…
“I was about 9 years old. I got this job in a Pepsi commercial tied to Madonna’s “Like a Prayer” video. The idea was that she was in this Pepsi studio, but she was thinking back to when she was a kid. I was in a birthday party scene.
They had me wear this horrible tomboy outfit, while all the other kids got to wear dresses. I remember Madonna came in to see all the kids.
I was really shy, but she singled me out and held my face and said, “Doesn’t she look like somebody?”
It was super cool.”
