Guy Ritchie Didn’t Have To Pull Punches With Madonna
October 12, 2002 – Chris Hewitt of the Saint Paul Pioneer Press chatted with Guy Ritchie about ‘Swept Away’, where he admitted Madonna had definite ideas about her character, and he agreed with most of them. “It was very easy, really. I get on with her really well, obviously, and she’s such a pro,” Ritchie said. “With her, I didn’t have to pull my punches like I might with someone else. I could say, ‘That thing you’re doing? Don’t do that.’ And as soon as the other actors see that you’re tough on one person, so to speak, you can transfer that to them.”
