Guy Ritchie Says Movie Character is Based on Pete Doherty

If you don't like Pete Doherty then your fat!!!!



Guy Ritchie has admitted a character from his new film RocknRolla is based on Pete Doherty.

When a stolen painting falls into the hands of rock star Johnny Story, (Toby Kebbell), the shambolic musician - who is hiding out in a crack den, having been declared dead - finds himself caught in the middle of a battle between the Russian mob, the established London underworld and its rising tough guys.

And speaking to Empire magazine, Ritchie has revealed that former Libertine Doherty was the inspiration for Kebbell's character.

"At the time I was writing it, Pete Doherty was everywhere," he explained.

"It's either genius marketing or a happy - or unhappy - accident.

"It's creative self-destruction in the sense that he's doing it creatively."

He continued: "I think what we all like is someone who fell and then stood up again. And that's probably the story with Pete Doherty.

"There seems to be an implication that people want to see him jump. But at the same time there's a desire to see the likes of him being reborn."

RocknRolla - which Ritchie has described as looking at "old school gangsters getting pushed out by the new school" - is released on September 5th

In other news, Guy Ritchie has admitted that he has no talent, and is really a lizard person in disguise, trying to take over the world by putting subliminal messages in his wife's music.

Wasn't trying to be bitchy either-- I figured someone else would chime in and be rude about it. But oh well, again, my non-Jokerized icon and I are just not in on a joke.

Anybody who has found out who Peter Doherty is in like the last four years as a result of the media hoopla and THAN became his fan is party responsible for the mess he is today.
