Russell Crowe was doing an interview with BBC radio yesterday to promote ‘Robin Hood’, when the host made the comment that Crowes accent in the movie sounded more Irish than English.
In case you haven’t heard, Russell Crowe is passive little lamb who doesn’t mind being insulted. “C’est la vie”, that’s Crowes motto.
Crowe said: “You’ve got dead ears, mate – seriously dead ears if you think there’s an Irish accent.”
Lawson then asked Crowe if the accent was meant to be northern.
Crowe replied: “No I was going for an Italian … missed it?”
He then walked out of the interview (and can) be heard muttering, “I don’t get the Irish thing by the way. I don’t get it at all.”
Well, I’d make fun of him but that Italian line was pretty good. Besides Crowe was Officer Bud White in ‘LA Confidential’. I don’t care what he does, that movie was awesome. Same with Ryan Phillippe and ‘The Way of the Gun’, or as it should be known, ‘The Greatest Movie Ever Made’. I don’t care who he’s sleeping with. He could bang my wife on our wedding day and I’d squeal, “OMG, Mr. Parker is banging my wife!!!”
