The King Of Pop Did Something Weird To Russell Crowe

Michael Jackson Prank Called Russell Crowe For Three Years
Michael Jackson was apparently a prankster, and Russell Crowe was one of his victims. In a new interview with The Guardian, the actor reveals that the King of Pop prank called him "for two or three f---ing years."

Kind of strange, don't you think?

Crowe explained: "I never met him, never shook his hand, but he found out the name I stayed in hotels under.

"It didn't matter where I was. He'd ring up, do this kind of thing, like you did when you were 10, you know. 'Is Mr. Wall there? Is Mrs. Wall there? Are there any Walls there? Then what's holding the roof up? Ha ha.'"

He added, "You're ...

Russell Crowe Wants Female Actresses To Act Their Age

Russell Crowe Wants Female Actresses To Act Their Age
Russell Crowe blasted older actresses who complain about a lack of good parts for their age group, in a recent interview with The Australian Women’s Weekly.

"The best thing about the industry I'm in, movies, is that there are roles for people in all different stages of life," he said.

"To be honest, I think you'll find that the woman who is saying that [the roles have dried up] is the woman who at 40, 45, 48, still wants to play the ingénue, and can’t understand why she's not being cast as the 21-year-old.”

While the actor doesn't feel that every actress behaves in this way, he critici...

But their love is star-crossed: she burns with a deadly form of consumption, and Peter has been marked for a much more violent death by his one-time mentor, the demonic Pearly Soames (Russell Crowe).

Peter desperately tries to save his one true love, across time, against the forces of darkness, even as Pearly does everything in his power to take him down-winner take all and loser be damned. What Peter ...

Russell Crowe Says Premature Criticism Of 'Noah' Is 'Absolute Stupidity'

3/26/2014 2:03pm EDT
Russell Crowe is a staunch defender of his upcoming film Noah, and he had some pointed words for critics attacking the movie before even watching it.

While talking with Good Morning America this morning, Crowe said, "We've had probably over a year now of very harsh criticism from a bunch of people who have put their name and stamp on an opinion that's not even based on the movie or seeing the movie, just an assumption of what it could be or how bad it could be or how wrong it could be in their eyes, which I think quite frankly is bordering on absolute stupidity, because now, I think, peopl...

Indonesia Is Latest Nation To Ban Biblical Epic 'Noah'
Indonesia is the latest country to ban Darren Aronofsky's Biblical epic "Noah," which stars Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly.

The nation is the latest in a growing list of Muslim countries refusing to show the film on the grounds that Noah was a prophet, and Islamic culture forbids the depiction of prophets in film and imagery.

Numerous Middle Eastern countries have already banned the film, including Bahrain, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.

Indonesia's censorship board voted unanimously to ban the film, which tells the story of the Great Flood and hits theaters on Friday.

Welcome to day two of 2014! Looking back in time 50 years ago, the year was 1964. Major events of that year included President Johnson being re-elected by a landslide over Barry Goldwater. The investigation of John F. Kennedy's assassination by the Warren Commission concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in the killing of the President. In the civil rights movement, three workers were murdered in Mississippi during the "Freedom Summer," and Anchorage, Alaska was hit by a massive earthquake.

In pop culture, Beatlemania had officially hit North America and on February 9 of that year, s...

The first trailer for Darren Aronofsky's Biblical epic Noah has arrived.

The film, based on the story of the Great Flood from the Book of Genesis in the Old Testament, stars Russell Crowe in the lead role. Noah is told by God to build an Ark big enough to hold two of each animal in the world -- even snakes as co-star Jennifer Connelly points out in the trailer. But some locals aren't too happy with what Noah is doing, and a confrontation ensues.

Ironically, the Oyster Bay, Long Island, set, which includes a full size Ark measuring 450 feet long, 45 feet wide and 75 feet tall and took thre...

Baby Superman Poops On Russell Crowe In 'Man of Steel'

In the movies, the role of Superman’s father goes to an actor often more legendary than the Superman himself. Marlon Brando played Jor-El in the original Superman: The Movie. In Man of Steel, we get Russell Crowe as Jor-El, the Gladiator himself sending his son away to earth. 

A father himself, Crowe shared stories of infant accidents from the babies who played newborn Kal-el. “On this movie, I got farted on first,” Crowe said. “That was okay. Pissed on, that was a little inconvenient, then the topper happened happened. Under those hot lights, it was after lunch, to be expected, and I got ...

While filming the upcoming Superman movie "Man Of Steel," each of the four babies chosen to play infant Kal-El relieved themselves on actor Russell Crowe.

Director Zack Snyder had to hire four newborns due to filming laws, and Crowe, who plays Jor-El, got a little more than he bargained for when shooting scenes with the little ones.

He told WENN: "I had a very interesting experience being a father on this movie... Unlike in my own experience as a father of two, I've managed to dodge all the p**s and the poo! I'm pretty slick with a nappy. But on this movie I got p**sed on, which was a lit...
