British filmmaker Guy Ritchie believes that ex-wife, pop superstar Madonna’s acting skills have been unfairly written off.

Ritchie, who divorced the ‘4 Minutes’ singer after nearly eight years of marriage in 2008, claims her acting talents are unfairly written off because people struggle to imagine her as anything other than a pop superstar, Female First reported.

“If you ask me, I think she’s all right. I think she’s perfectly good. I just don’t think people can get her persona out of the way,” Ritchie said.

Ritchie directed Madonna in the straight-to-DVD movie ‘Swept Away’ in 2002, and despite the movie being blasted by critics, he insisted that he is proud of the work they did together.

“The whole thing is supposed to be ironic. It’s about a man that hits a woman. If you ask me, everything about it was rather interesting, but it was such a feral relationship between a man and woman and you just can’t get away with that in contemporary society.”

Despite public perception of Madonna, she won a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Eva Peron in ‘Evita’.
