Guy Ritchie Too Drunk to Remember Son’s Speech at Wedding
Guy Ritchie, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels director, wed his long-term partner Jacqui Ainsley at their sprawling estate in Salisbury, England on July 30, 2015, and his son Rocco, from his previous marriage to pop superstar Madonna, gave a speech at the reception.
The newlyweds, who have five children – Rocco and David from Ritchie’s marriage to Madonna, as well as Rafael, Rivka and Levi from their own relationship – tied the knot in front of Hollywood stars including Brad Pitt, Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer. David Beckham also attended the nuptials, and Ritchie – who offered the soccer star parts in two of his recent movies – admits he was impressed with Beckham’s acting ability.
He says, “I think you go steady, don’t do too much. It’s a bit of fun and he’s very good at it.”
Ritchie also revealed that Tom Cruise was originally lined up to play U.S. spy Napoleon Solo in his recent The Man From U.N.C.L.E. remake, but after the deal fell through, the part was offered to Superman star Henry Cavill. The director says, “I like the Cruister. Deal-making in Hollywood is tricky and somehow the deal didn’t work out.”
