By a coincidence of timing, Madonna’s W.E. is coming out around the same time as her former husband Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes 2.
Movieline.com asked Mr. Ritchie if he thinks that the filmmaking impulse in any way influenced Madonna during their time together. "I don’t know, she’s always been interested in film," Guy says. "Actually, I sort of encouraged her to be interested in film and she used quite a lot of my crew on her film."
"I haven’t seen her film and I haven’t read her script so it’s hard for me to comment, but I wish her the best with it."
Guy also wanted to come back to what he lately said about his marriage with Madonna, when he described it as a soap-opera. "I think most people’s marriages are like soap operas so I don’t know if I’m unique in that sense, to a degree, but I suppose it was exceptionally operatic. [Smiles] But then as I say I suppose everyone’s is at some point or another."
