But at lunchtime, they sat down with LondonNet to discuss their favourite filming spots (the top level of Wembley Stadium), the merits of Roman Abramovich (whom Guy hears is “a very nice jack”) and the director’s plan to make as many movies as possible over the next decade.
As you can imagine, an afternoon with Guy, Gerard Butler, Thandie Newton, and five other co-stars can get a little…interesting. See if you can match these quotes with the stars who said them.
1. Guy Ritchie, a.k.a. Mr Madonna
2. Gerard Butler, starring as gangster One Two
3. Thandie Newton, who plays corrupt accountant Stella
4. Toby Kebbell, acting as rocker Johnny Quid
A. I starved for seven days. But my body looks wicked, I think.

C. I think there’s a lot of similarities between Glasgow and cockney London. There’s a lot of similar characters, but just different accents.
D. I have a friend of mine that had his banks eaten away by crayfish. It’s an issue, and I’m starting a campaign.
