Hollywood star VINNIE JONES offered director GUY RITCHIE advice on his love-life when he started dating MADONNA.
The soccer-hero turned actor counselled Guy on the set of SNATCH (1999), and warned him about the publicity they would attract.
Vinnie explains, "It's a bit like my wife going: 'It's all Vinnie this and Vinnie that and the wife of Vinnie Jones' and it's always going to be 'the husband of Madonna' and all that which is, I think, a hard pill to swallow. He's very much in love and love conquers everything like that. " (KMW/WNTRE/RP)
