Jason Statham claims Guy Ritchie owes his money - for losing loads of games of chess. Dated: November 16, 2005 The tough guy actor, who has starred in three of the director's movies, has confessed he and Guy became obsessed with the geeky board game on the set of 'Revolver' - and Jason insists he always won. He said: "I played more chess with Guy on that set than I've ever played in my life. He owes me a lot of money because he lost so many times. And I need it more than he does!" Meanwhile, Jason believes he has a doppelganger who is dating famous beauties. The star, who used to romance Kelly Brook, claims he can't understand why he has been seen out with Pamela Anderson and Denise Van Outen when he barely even knows them. He revealed to Britain's Night and Day magazine: "I've never even said hello to Pam. The closest I got to her was being in the same room at a Vanity Fair party one year. "And then I hear about me and Denise at some Indian restaurant in southeast London. It must be my double! He's not getting any work doing the stunts for me, so he must be getting a bit of work filling in with the ladies."
