Guy Ritchie describes his ex-wife as 'retarded' but confesses he still loves her

It's a brave man that crosses Madonna, but ex-husband Guy Ritchie must be used to dealing with her.

Now the director could be receiving an irate phone call after describing the Material Girl as 'retarded'!

Guy and Madonna divorced nearly a year ago and he has rarely spoken about his ex-wife.

But Guy has just opened up about marriage to Madonna.

'Madonna makes things happen. Put Madonna up against any twenty-three-year-old, she'll outwork them, outdance them, outperform them. The woman is broad,' he says.

He also confesses that he still has feelings for Madge.

'Of course, here you go: I still love her,' he admits during an interview with Esquire magazine. 'But she's retarded too.'

Perhaps luckily for Guy, he doesn't explain exactly how Madonna is retarded...

The director is currently promoting his latest movie Sherlock Holmes starring Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law.

Meanwhile, his ex-misses is said to be house-hunting for her toy boy lover in New York.

Madonna has reportedly told her estate agents to search for a £1.7m flat for Jesus Luz, within walking distance of her own home in NYC.

The singer, 51, is not ready to move in with Jesus, 22, but is planning to give him his own apartment, reports The Sun.

'Em is buying Jesus an apartment in New York... She is financing everything but Jesus will own it once it's been found and bought,' a source told the paper.

It may not be retarded, but that does sound a little over-the-top. Can't she just get him a DVD box set like we do for our other halves?!
