Guy Ritchie Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Guy Stuart Ritchie was born on 10 September 1968 in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, England, and is one of the more respected people in the film industry. He is mostly known as a film director who has created films including ‘Snatch’ (2000), ‘RocknRolla’ (2008), ‘Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows’ (2011) among others. He is a nominee for an Academy Award.

So just how rich is Guy Ritchie? It has been stated that Guy is one of the richest people working behind the scenes of the industry since the overall amount of his net worth has reached over $100 million, accumulated during a career now spanning more than 20 years. Additionally, Guy Richie has also increased his net worth as a pub landlord and businessman since the middle of the 1990s.

Guy Ritchie Net Worth $100 Million

Guy’s education was unremarkable, as he was expelled from school allegedly because of his drug use. Guy indicates it was because he was lazy, which was not helped by his dyslexia.

The beginning of Guy’s career was a short film entitled ‘The Hard Case’ (1995) which so impressed Trudie Styler that she invested money into the first feature film directed and written by Guy Ritchie. In 1998, Ritchie debuted with his feature film ‘Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels’ starring Jason Flemyng and Dexter Fletcher. The film received positive reviews from critics and won an Edgar Award for Best Motion Picture Screenplay. Moreover, it was financially successful as the box office grossed $28 million, while the film budget was only $1.35 million. Guy’s net worth was starting to rise.

The next film directed and written by Guy Ritchie was entitled ‘Snatch’ (2000) starring Benicio del Toro, Dennis Farina. This film was also very successful, as the box office grossed the budget more than eight times. The third film which was directed and written by Ritchie received negative reviews, but it has earned a fortune. ‘Swept Away’ (2001) starring Madonna has increased Guy’s net worth the most as the box office grossed $598 million dollars while the budget of the film was just $10 million.

Other films that were written and directed by Ritchie and have increased his net worth were ‘Revolver’ (2005) starring Jason Statham, Ray Liotta, and ‘RocknRolla’ starring Gerard Butler and Tom Wilkinson (2008). Moreover, Guy Ritchie has added to his net worth directing the films ‘Suspect’ (2007), ‘Sherlock Holmes’ (2009) which was nominated for an Oscar for the Best Art Direction and ‘Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows’ (2011) which was nominated for Saturn Awards and Teen Choice Awards.

Guy also produced and directed videos starring his then wife Madonna, including “What it Feels Like for a Girl”(2005) and “Star”, neither of which gained critical or box office success.

In addition to being a talented director and screen writer, Guy has produced several films including ‘Mean Machine’ (2001) starring Vinnie Jones, David Kelly and directed by Barry Skolnick, and ‘RocknRolla’ (2008). Ritchie recently directed ‘The Man from U.N.C.L.E.’ co-written by Lionel Wigram and Guy himself and starring Hugh Grant, Armie Hammer and Henry Cavill, and is now filming “The Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur”.

In his personal life, Guy Ritchie married Madonna in 2000; they have a son and an adopted son, however, the couple divorced in 2008 with Madonna adding at least $80 million to Guy’s net worth in settlement.  Ritchie married long-time partner the model Jacqui Ainsley in July 2015; they have three children together.

#Quote
1 (On why he cast Madonna in Swept Away (2002)) Because she was cheap and available.
2 [on claims by Madonna's brother that he's homophobic] You'd be hard pushed to be a homophobe and marry Madonna!
3 Creatively, we like the same sort of things, so it just makes sense to work together. (on working with wife Madonna)
4 As I get more and more involved in the child's world with Rocco [his son] I'm getting interested in making a film for children.
5 I'd like to work with the missus, but there's nothing in the pipeline at the moment.
6 The English countryside is the most staggeringly beautiful place. I can't spend as much time there as I like, but I like everything about it. I like fishing, I like clay- pigeon shooting. I am not involved in any 'issues' because it's too sensitive for me - or my wife - to get involved. Every time we express an opinion it becomes a whole thing in itself. And the whole purpose of living in the countryside was to get away from hundreds of people. My wife fell off a horse, and suddenly there are hundreds of people around.
7 I'm not politically motivated. I used to be - passionately. I used to be very Left wing. Then I went very Right wing, and now I rest somewhere in the middle.
8 I am relatively familiar with getting a good old rumping from the critics. In some cases, the critics just didn't like the film - fair cop. Others, I think, didn't understand it.
9 We are not that flash, me or the missus. In fact, we are quite low-maintenance.
10 I can understand that the whole world is interested in my wife. That's even why I married her.

#Trademark
1 His films often feature characters who seem unstoppable and near-indestructible (e.g Boris the Blade from _Snatch (2000)_, the Chechnyans from _RocknRolla (2007)_, and Dredger from Sherlock Holmes (2009)).
2 Frequent use of humor in violent scenes
3 Frequently employs the use of high speed photography in action sequences
4 Often casts musicians (Sting, Goldie, Madonna, André Benjamin, Ludacris).
5 Often works with Jason Statham, Mark Strong and Matthew Vaughn
6 Numerous plot threads which intersect and assist in each other's payoffs
7 Frequently uses narration
