My desk is near a couple of executives who really enjoy celebrity gossip. Earlier, they were discussing how Russell Crowe apparently told some journalist that when they were shooting The Quick and the Dead (by the way, a totally underrated film! grouchy, alcoholic Sharon Stone! grouchy, spiritually-troubled Russell Crowe! Gene Hackman!) Leonardo DiCaprio kept talking about, ah, how he had not yet known the loving embrace of a woman.
The amazing part of the conversation was how the one executive went off on a tangent about how if she ever met Russell Crowe, she was totally not going to tell him anything personal, because look what happens! (She wasn’t being funny.)
I find this delightful! Can you imagine?
THINGS RUSSELL CROWE MIGHT SAY ABOUT YOU IN INTERVIEWS IF HE WERE TO TALK ABOUT YOU IN INTERVIEWS:
*Sometimes throws out old Tupperware containers found in the back of the fridge instead of being responsible and washing them out.
*Unacceptably high level of “So, Australians, you’re all descended from convicts!” jokes.
*Would like to visit Alaska, but have intense fear of bears.
*Likes Justin Timberlake songs, tried to convince Crowe of redeeming artistic value.
*Still hung up on perceived slight by Stan in Shipping in January of ’05.
