Tough guy actor VINNIE JONES will not attend the wedding of his great friend GUY RITCHIE and pop queen MADONNA.
The footballer turned Hollywood star is among Guy's closest pals. But Hollywood chiefs are refusing to allow him time off from filming his latest movie SWORDFISH because it would cost the studio millions to rearrange shooting.
Vinnie, 35, says, "I'm very disappointed I'm going to miss the wedding - it will be the party of the year." (TM/WNTSU/PDD)
