Guy Ritchie recently sat down with Esquire and actually dished a bit about his feelings for Madonna. In the interview such varying topics as “love” and “retarded” were thrown around.
“She’s a manifester, if there ever was one,” [Guy Ritchie] says. “First-rate manifester. Madonna makes things happen. Put Madonna up against any twenty-three-year-old, she’ll outwork them, outdance them, outperform them. The woman is broad.”
“Broad,” I say, repeating the word of the day.
“And, of course, here you go: I still love her,” he says. He takes a breath, drives through a red light. If no one is ahead of him, Guy Ritchie does not typically stop. “But she’s retarded, too.”
It’s rocky getting a divorce, innit? I say.
“You can’t tell someone when they’re getting divorced that their pain is an illusion,” he says. “I’m f-cking telling you, I feel it, I’ve been through that. You have, too. No one can say you don’t feel that. That’s the illusion of the illusion. The biggest fundamental is, you need a little ignorance.”
