If he didn't go far enough, I'd encourage him. But he and I were pretty much in agreement 90, 95 percent of the time.

Robert Downey Jr. thinks too quickly for Guy Ritchie.

The actor and director bonded over their vision for new movie 'Sherlock Holmes' but the filmmaker admits he occasionally took a while to understand his star's ideas.

Guy said: "I mean, Robert is a bit Sherlock Holmesian himself, so yeah, his brain works at 100 miles an hour. Actually his seems to work a lot faster than mine 'cause I don't always know what he was talking about.

"But yeah, so as long as I can understand what he's talking about then we were in agreement. It's just sometimes he can go a bit too quick for me to keep up, but no, I mean, it's funny."

The 41-year-old director said Robert bought something else to the set because he was always willing to improvise and throw things into the mix.

He told ComingSoon.net: "It just works. I mean, Robert and I had a collective agreement of who Sherlock Holmes was in that he's developed or evolved, but he and I always kind of had an empathy on who Holmes was, so if he went too far, I'd put the reins on him.

"If he didn't go far enough, I'd encourage him. But he and I were pretty much in agreement 90, 95 percent of the time."
