Ryan Murphy recalled lying about his birthday for a chance to interview Madonna for a movie.

He was advised to not reveal his true star sign to the queen of pop by fellow producer Tom Rosenberg.

Murphy is a Scorpio, born November 9th, and Madonna allegedly does not like Scorpios.

He used his mother’s September birthday instead of his while talking to Madonna.

According to the director, Madonna noted that he was a Virgo, even though it was a lie.

Murphy had to interview Madonna for the movie, “The Next Best Thing.”

He eventually got fired from the film because one of the stars, Rupert Everett, didn’t like his script.

Everett criticized the writing for being entirely “about Madonna’s character.”

Madonna has previously refused to work with a Scorpio, DJ Guetta, seemingly after learning of his star sign.
