Robert Downey Jr. plays matchmaker for Guy RitchieJune 19th, 2009 - 11:57 am ICT by ANI
Washington, June 19 (ANI): If sources are to be believed, actor Robert Downey Jr. is trying his best to get Guy Ritchie hooked up with someone.
The Oscar winning actor became friends with the director while shooting for his film ‘Sherlock Holmes’.
“Robert and Guy became close friends during the filming of ‘Sherlock Holmes’ while Guy was going through his painful divorce from Madonna,” Contactmusic quoted a source as telling National Enquirer magazine.
“Robert kept telling Guy that what he needed was a new girlfriend to help him forget his troubles. But Guy wasn’t ready then,” the source added.
The two friends often go for night-outs together in U.S and U.K. where Downey lets no opportunity go to introduce Guy to women.
“When Guy and Robert see an attractive woman, Robert introduces himself and follows up with, ‘Have you met my friend Guy? He is wonderful!’ ” the source revealed.
The ‘Chaplin’ star with the help of his wife has also made a list of women his friend can date - apparently, Jennifer Aniston and Cameron Diaz top the list.
The 40-year-old helmer has been linked to a few women after his break-up with Madonna, including, Elle Macpherson and Jemima Khan. (ANI)
