Statham's Debt To Ritchie

Movie action man JASON STATHAM owes his entire movie career to GUY RITCHIE, who gave him his big break in movie LOCK STOCK + TWO SMOKING BARRELS. Statham insists he would still be where Ritchie found him, a street seller, had Ritchie not taken a chance and cast him as a gangster in the British movie. The actor - now a Hollywood big-hitter - says, "Without him I'd still be working jewellery and perfume on the streets. It's not like I had further education or exams. "He's a complete inspiration. I love his movies and he's got great taste. If I do need to ask him a question, he'll give me his opinion and it's always a very valued one."
