Mads recently received the not so flattering award "guldkrukken" from a Danish gossip magazine. The award refers to his somewhat bad temper when it comes to the press. The magazine pointed out that Mads has gone from a Danish TV darling to an angry old man who refuses to be interviewed or have his picture taken if it's not on his terms. Whether or not Mads received this award because he sued the magazine for half a million Dkr. is unknown.
