Winters went on to post several different looks, starting the hashtag #minimadonna on her various recreations.

“Since covid – casting and film business has been whack af. So I’m trying a new tactic. #hireme lol @madonna,” the actress captioned a video in which she is being given Madonna’s signature red lip.

Winters’ self-started campaign follows the news that Madonna will be directing and co-writing a biopic about her life alongside Juno screenwriter Diablo Cody.

“I want to convey the incredible journey that life has taken me on as an artist, a musician, a dancer – a human being, trying to make her way in this world,” Madonna said in a press statement.

“The focus of this film will always be music. Music has kept me going and art has kept me alive. There are so many untold and inspiring stories and who better to tell it than me. It’s essential to share the roller coaster ride of my life with my voice and vision.”
