The Sucker Punch actor stars in the Queen of Pop's new film, WE, and said it was surreal being directed by the music icon.

"She is definitely a formidable woman, she is such a determined and incredible woman that it never left my mind that this icon was directing us - yelling at me to make love better and things like that!" he said.

Oscar added: "Anything she ever asked for was always right on. And she's very funny, that's what I wasn't expecting, she has a great self-deprecating humour and wit. I loved it, I love her."

While his WE co-star Abbie Cornish had to Skype Madonna, Oscar - who plays Blue in Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch - had an easy-going encounter with the director in person.

"I was summoned to Madonna's 'lair', her house up in New York and met with her for a few hours. We just had a great conversation and off of that she hired me. It was awesome," he recalled.

The 31-year-old plays security guard Evgeni, who has a love affair with Abbie's character Wally Winthrop in the drama.

"It's a modern day [story] and Abbie's character goes to Sotheby's to see them auctioning off all of Wallis Simpson's memorabilia. I'm a security guard that works there that she ends up having a romance with," he revealed.
