Perhaps Madonna's daughter Lourdes gave her mother hydrangeas for Christmas?

The Material Girl's offspring had a small role in her mother's film, "W.E.," which opens in theaters this Friday. However, as the singer/actress/director told MTV, she ended up having to cut the scene from the film.

"There was a scene where [Lourdes] played Wally [Wallis Simpson] as a young girl. And I just kind of dragged her in at the last minute. It was quite unfair of me what I did and what I asked her to do," admitted Madonna. "But she was really great and then I ended up cutting her out of the film. Ruthless, I know. I said, 'Sorry babe, you're on the cutting room floor.' She took it like a champ."

Motherly! At the very least, this proves Madonna really won't pull any punches, even for her own children. Hopefully, Lourdes got something out of it, like, uh, free tickets to the Super Bowl?
