Russell Crowe Ordered to Shed the Fat For Robin Hood Flick

No one wants to see fat rolls in tights on the big screen!

The UK's Daily Mail reports that thesp Russell Crowe has been told by acclaimed director Ridley Scott to slim down for his role as the sheriff of Nottingham in the forthcoming Robin Hood film.

Scott will be the guy at the helm of the Robin Hood movie.

The British director is credited for making tubster Crowe a star by casting him in Gladiator, a role that won him the Best Actor Oscar.

An insider revealed, "Ridley is one of the only directors on earth who could ask Russell to slim down. He's hoping by the time March comes around that Russell will have shed some pounds."

Who doesn't want the return of Gladiator Russell?!

Sluttyienna Miller is probably relieved to hear this news.

As we've mentioned previously, SlutSlut will play the role of Maid Marian in the film.

If she's on board we're sure there's going to be lots of steamy, sexy scenes.

Bet she wasn't looking forward to getting mashed by the hefty Russell!

    GLADIATOR!!!! OH HE WAS SO HOT IN THAT!!!!



  2. 2

    I really hope his hotness will come back!



  3. 3

    God I hope he can come back from what he has become. His nutritionist, personal trainer and his cook have a lot of work to do…or to undo.



  4. 4

    He still looks sexy :)



  5. 5

    GORDO!



  6. 6

    Let him play Friar Tuck, he was a fatass!



  7. 7

    Nothing will compare to Kevin Costner's glorious English accent in Prince of Thieves! Slutty cannot be Maid Marian-ugh! Maybe Friar Tuck or something would be more suitable…

    Dear oh dear.

    Firstly, its Maid Marion. Not Marian.

    Secondly why would Maid Marion be getting it on with the Sheriff of Nottingham? It was Robin Hood she was getting frisky with in legend.

    Get your British folklore correct, Perez! x

  35. 35

  36. 36

    God, this dude is so f***ing GROSS! He is fugly…nasty lookin' mess.



  37. 37

    Wow, I was really looking foward to this movie, but now I find out Sienna Miller will be in it. I think I will pass this one by. Good luck, Russell, I have a feeling you may need it. And If I were your wife I would keep a very close eye on you.

And If I were your wife I would keep a very close eye on you. Sienna seems to enjoy the conquest, then leaves her nasty havoc everywhere.

    ANOTHER robin hood movie!?! God people, come up with new ideas, please! Robin hood has been done to death!

    Re: ellesdee…you're absolutely right. No one can replace Alan Rickman as the sheriff. However, the BBC has a version of Robin Hood which is wonderful and Keith Allen is the sheriff of Nottingham. He plays the part superbly and give Rickman a run for his money!



  41. 41

    He's still a rockin stud and can fuck my furry ass anytime. Woooof to a real man!!



  42. 42

    Wasn't this the same hypocrite who made disparaging comments about how much fatter American women were than Australian women at a concert one night a couple of years ago? Typical asshole

    But wasn't it Ridley Scott who told Crowe to pack on the pounds for that last movie? Looks like there's an awesome chubby chaser fantasy going on between them.



  44. 44

    Yum, I'm sure that hefty Crowe mashes a gal quite nicely.



  45. 45

    Gross, I bet he smells like a tramp's overcoat



  46. 46

    *yet another* robin Hood film? Hasn't that been done several times already? The one with Kevin Costner was good.



  47. 47

    Crowe was already a star BEFORE Gladiator. It was his star power that they were using to sell Gladiator. He had already made a name for himself after L.A. Confidential (one of the best period movies ever! IMHO.) Anyhoo, he does need to lose weight. I am glad to see a male star get told to drop some weight once in a while. It always seems to be women that get dissed for weight problems the most.

    Umm, Maid Marion DOES NOT mess with The Sheriff of Nottingham. If he's playing that part, the Sheriff is a bad guy who wants Marion, but cannot have her. Is Russell the Sheriff or Robin Hood?



  49. 49

    Excuse me? This isn't news from a legit paper, it's from a gossip column that runs in the Mail. Crowe has been steadily losing weight since he gained for Scott for his Body of Lies role. He talked about it in interviews from November.

    hes not even that big, leave off perez



  51. 51

    ICKY POO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  52. 52

    Crowe's wife will put the ix-nay on any sex scenes, particularly with somebody like Sienna Miller…bet on it



  53. 53

    Oh yeah I'd bang the hell out of Gladiator Russell!
