Guy Ritchie is convinced his relationship with pop singing star Madonna completely changed his life, because it catapulted him into the public eye. The movie maker was relatively unknown when he began dating the superstar in 1998, shortly after the release of his first full-length film, "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels." And Ritchie admits that he was only just starting to adjust to life as a celebrity when he embarked on his new relationship, and the he was unprepared for the level of attention that dating a superstar like Madonna brought with it. He says, "I'd been with (Madonna) for two years before (we got married). That changed my life more than anything in my career because she is hugely famous.It has an enormous impact on the life of whoever she is with. Enormous. An unimaginable impact. "I had just had a hit movie, and then this other thing came along that completely trumped it."

Filmmaker and director Guy Ritchie is breaking his silence over reports his marriage to pop singer Madonna is in trouble, insisting everything is just fine.The famous couple have been under intense media scrutiny in the past few weeks, amid rumors they are on the verge of a divorce. Madonna has also come under fire for her close friendship with famed baseball star Alex Rodriguez, with the sportsman's estranged wife alleging she had an "affair of the heart" with Rodriguez. However, appearing at the San Diego International Comic-Con event in California on Thursday, director Ritchie appeared happy and content, reports asked by reporters whether things are going well in his marriage, he replied, "As far as I'm aware of."Ritchie is currently busy promoting his upcoming action film "RocknRolla," which was filmed in his hometown of London. He openly chatted about viewing the British capital through the eyes of Madonna, who moved from the U.S. to the U.K. when the pair wed in 2000. He said, "I was born there and I've seen it change and I know a great deal about it, I'm invested. I live vicariously through my wife, so I was once a spy and now I've become a tourist, and it's much more fun to live in London as a tourist than it is as a spy."Someone told me the definition was a spy always looks for the bad stuff, and a tourist always looks for the good stuff. So that makes it easy, being married to an American."

Madonna arrived in Malawi without husband Guy Ritchie yesterday. The singer - who travelled with daughter Lourdes and adopted son David - has been reportedly rowing with Guy about her plans to adopt again. The director was expected to join his wife, but stayed in London to look after their six-year-old son Rocco. Friends of the couple say the 48-year-old singer made a series of "tearful phone calls" begging Guy to be with her when 18-month-old David is reunited with his father today. A source told Britain's Daily Mail newspaper: "Madonna was furious, telling him to reschedule his work commitments because family comes first. But Guy wouldn't budge. He thought the trip had disaster written all over it. They were both very hurt over the way their adoption was criticised and Guy thought it was too soon to be going back with a film crew." It is alleged the couple have been arguing since David's adoption, and tensions increased when Madonna spoke to Guy about adopting again. The source added: "Guy went ballistic. He thinks they must spend more time going through the process. Madonna thinks his attitude is unsupportive." Madonna - wearing sunglasses, a wide Panama hat and combat trousers - and 10-year-old Lourdes visited a farm project in one of the country's poorest areas yesterday. They spent two hours chatting to hundreds of villagers at Millennium Garden - which teaches people how to grow their own food. The pair were shown around the irrigation system and Lourdes challenged local children to a water fight. Madonna and Lourdes were presented with flowers and bracelets, before driving back to Kimbala Lodge. Madonna is expected to stay in Malawi for a week and will visit several orphanages, sparking reports she is to adopt again. Her spokeswoman has denied the claims, insisting she is helping to establish a new health care centre.
