Madonna was snapped in a series of unfiltered photos while hanging out with Julia Garner, the star of her canceled biopic.
The “Material Girl” singer, 64, was photographed with Garner, 29, on Sunday at photographer Steven Klein’s birthday party at Journey NYC in downtown Manhattan.
The intimate bash took place in the 360 Room, where guests “dine in a virtual Zepplin traveling over New York City, through volcanoes, underwater, and into space.”
An insider tells Page Six that the entire restaurant space was reserved for the photographer and his friends.
Madonna has been a longtime pal of the photographer and they have worked together many times over the years.
“It is rare to meet another human who is tuned in to your frequency,” she told Vanity Fair last year. “That is why our collaborations are often disturbing but always epic.”
Meanwhile, Garner had been set to star as the “Vogue” singer in a biopic that Madonna scripted and was slated to direct.

The “Ozark” star was said to have beaten off some stiff competition for the role including “Litte Women” star Florence Pugh, “Euphoria” starlet Alexa Demie, actress Odessa Young and singer Bebe Rexha. The women vying for the coveted role were required to attend a hardcore boot camp-like session to see whether they had what it takes, according to Variety.
“I’ve had an extraordinary life, I must make an extraordinary film,” the “Like a Virgin” singer said in July last year. “It was also a preemptive strike because a lot of people were trying to make movies about me. Mostly misogynistic men. So I put my foot in the door and said, ‘No one’s going to tell my story, but me!’”
But plans were scrapped earlier this year.
The film’s pre-production was halted at Universal Pictures reportedly due to Madonna’s preparations for a massive world tour called the “Celebration” tour.
The tour, which was announced in January, will celebrate the Queen of Pop’s four-decade career and will take her to 35 cities around the world.
It kicks off on July 15 in Vancouver, moves on to North America, and then ends up in Europe before concluding on Dec. 1.
“I am excited to explore as many songs as possible in hopes to give my fans the show they have been waiting for,” she said in a statement to Page Six.
The “Evita” star has been in the news of late for not just her tour announcement but for her appearance.
During her appearance at the Grammys in February, she quickly became a viral topic after fans remarked on how different her face looked.
Days after the uproar, Madonna slammed the trolls and wrote that she was “caught in the glare of ageism and misogyny That permeates the world we live in.”
