Washington, Dec 26: Madonna has revealed that she loved 'It's A Wonderful Life' so much that she wished actor James Stewart was her real father while growing up.
The pop diva admitted that she always makes time to watch the Christmas-themed classic during the holidays, and it always takes her back to her childhood.
"I love the message of it; I think it's so beautiful," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
"I grew up wishing that Jimmy Stewart was my father.
"The story of wanting it all and having it all and then losing it all and then realising what's important, it's like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz - 'There's no place like home'.
"It's kind of corny and cliche but, to me, it's a classic story that stands the test of time.
"I love it. I cry every time I see it," she added. (ANI)
