Guy Ritchie's Downey support
A sombre looking Guy Ritchie was comforted by Robert Downey Jr. and his wife on Saturday (26.07.08).
The British film director, who is battling constant rumours his marriage to Madonna is in trouble, spent the afternoon with Robert and his spouse Susan at the lavish Beverly Hills Hotel.
A source told Britain's Daily Express newspaper: "Guy was having a low-key meal by the pool with the Downeys. He was eating slowly and seemed dispirited.
"Guy looked like he had a lot on his mind."
At one point during the meal, Susan leaned over the table and gave the filmmaker a hug.
Madonna is currently in New York rehearsing for her new 'Sticky and Sweet' tour, while Guy is in Los Angeles to promote his new film 'RocknRolla'.
Susan is one of the producers of the movie, which stars Gerard Butler and Gemma Arterton.
Guy and Susan will also team up again for a re-imagining of 'Sherlock Holmes', with Robert portraying the fictional British detective.
The 'Snatch' director has denied all speculation about a split from his wife, claiming his marriage "is fine".
