Fame Pictures put together some of the photos in this amusing and touching retrospective of Madonna and Guy Richie’s nine year relationship. Some of the photos are kind of telling and may give vague clues as to whichever dynamic they had going on in their relationship, which many of you are speculating about. It’s hard to tell what went on behind closed doors, but it’s easy to see that as Madonna’s star got brighter by sheer force of will Guy’s just sort of dimmed. It was like he threw his hands up and became Mr. Madonna. That was due in no small part to the bomb of a movie he made in 2002, Swept Away, starring his wife. After that things were never quite the same for Guy’s career. At least Madonna swore off acting after that film.
Ritchie is currently directing Sherlock Holmes in London while Madonna remains in NY.
