Russell Crowe Can't Take It!

| Filed under: Film FlickersRussell Crowe


He's such a diva!

Russell Crowe stormed out of a BBC radio interview on Wednesday when the host told him his Robin Hood accent sounded Irish.

"The accent you've given him (Robin Hood). There are hints to me of Irish, but what…. were you thinking in those terms?" questioned host, Mark Lawson.

"You've got dead ears mate, you've seriously dead ears if you think that's an Irish accent… B**locks," replied Crowe.


And even though the host tried to take the line of questioning elsewhere, Russell kept bringing it back to the accent.

"I'm a little dumbfounded you could possibly find any Irish in that character, that's kind of ridiculous anyway but it's your show," Russell continued. "No! I was going for an Italian (accent)… missed it? F**k me!"

Then he proceeded to walk out of the interview, adding, "I don't get the Irish thing by the way. I don't get it at all."

WTF?! Get over yourself, Crowe. You should be more concerned that no one wants to see an old ballz Robin Hood!

    So he has a 'hissy fit'. Movie must be bad.

  2. 2

    Whatever. I don't understand the casting of Russell Crowe as Robin Hood at all.

  3. 3

    so, this is supposed to be how he became robin hood? why is he like 50? His accent is the least of my worries.. i don't think i'll ever watch this movie. russel crowe is a little bitch anyways.

  4. 4

    movie sucks, he needs to retire

  5. 5

    From the clips I've heard, he's given Robin Hood a northern accent rather than a Midlands one … not heard enough to hear any Irish in the mix though. Won't be going to see the film to find out either - yawnsville.

  6. 6

    God he's such a tool.

  7. 7

    He just wanted to prove once again what a pile of douchy crap he is.

  8. 8

    Oh go fuck yourself Russell, your movies suck anyway.

  9. 9

    My mom is dying to see this movie… the older ladies must love him or something, but this movie looks like garb so whatever.

    As per usual you take things out of context. THIS is what was really said, and Crowe did not keep bringing the issue back on the accent:

    Russell Crowe has walked out of a BBC interview after swearing on air, whilst promoting new film Robin Hood.

    The actor was offended after being asked about his accent in the movie on radio show Front Row.

    After presenter Mark Lawson suggested there were hints of Irish in his voice, the notoriously grumpy actor said:

    “You've got dead ears mate - seriously dead ears if you think that's an Irish accent. Bollocks!"

    After being asked if he was going for a Northern English accent Crowe said: “No I was going for an Italian… missed it? F*** me.”

    He then walked out of the encounter and apparently “waved a cigarette” at the host.

    Crowe is known for his attitude but you just have it in for him Mario as you'd bagged this movie from the start. YOu're going to be proven wrong.

    FINALLY!!! Most of these high paid actors and actresses swear they can use whatever accent they want to in a period piece and get away with it! Just because someone noticed and mentioned it aloud(OH! THE NERVE!) they get all silly about it…and BTW a lot of GAY actors CANNOT play a straight role for the life of them a.k.a Robert Pattinsion, and that's MY opinion

  12. 12

    hahah but the accent sounds sexy still, even if it scottish or irish or whatever, american cant tell if its scottish or irish i dunno know what the heck im writing but whatevs

  13. 13

    Ooo, a little shaky on the impulse control…

  14. 14

    Didn't they do the "robin hood men in tights" already?!?!?

  15. 15

    Your a douche. Russell Crowe is awesome and hands down the best actor of all time so stop your ranting.

  16. 16

    Just saw "Robin" & it's terrible. Crowe is terrible in it. And the accent is some type of Aussie mumble. Go see "Iron Man 2" twice, go see "Babies", stay home a play Monopoly, but stay a long way away from Mr. Crowe's pathetic "Robin Hood".

  17. 17

    Re: TandM555 – YESSSS,agreed!!! I thought I was the only one who thought this after reading all the other comments. He was in 3 of my ALL time favorite movies, Gladiator,Cinderella Man,A Beautiful Mind. I agree he is a TERRIFIC actor……He is very much TALENTED!!!Hands down!!!

  18. 18

    Russell is very sensitive so of course he will get ants in his pants when the accent does not work out well especially when this movie is probably one that would bring his career back to the limelight and he also worked out to get in shape.

    He wants everything perfect!!

    The fans will be his critics after watching the movie…. time will tell….

  19. 19

    some folks are always mad and they make amazing big deals out of nothing.
    When they appear nice the anger is boiling underneath.

  20. 20

    Yes, I know he is a actor that receives a high salary and all that crap. But he is human. He has been all over the world doing his job by promoting his movie. Probably tired and honestly, if someone questioned my work that I gave 100% to - I would mostly likely do the same. So - way to go Russell!

  21. 21

    Perez, you are an idiot. I was on the set a bit of the time and he worked very hard on the accent (no I am not a relative). It is not Irish at all. The interviewer was an idiot to even say that. It seems like these people purposely try to get Russell into a confrontational situation so he can speak his mind and then the newscaster gets press. The movie is wonderful, the cast is great, sets and costumes amazing.. Could jealousy play a part in your slamming him. Why don't you meet him first and then judge.

  22. 22

    what are u talking about perez? ITs freakin Ridley Scott and one of the best actors in the business! Who wouldnt want to see this???

  23. 23

    Crowe is like a bad old dirty diaper with a mouth. This other dude, too fat and old. Come on HOllywood!!!!

  24. 24

    Re: gramtoofive – Stroke it… and call it a night.

  25. 25

    re: poosie Whatever

  26. 26

    While Crowe was once a phenomenal actor, that was 10 or 15 years ago. The last 4 or 5 "films" he put out have REEKED. And Robin Hood at like 45?! C'mon now, where is his oxygen tank, and Diapers. Ridiculous casting for a HORRID and BORING yawnfest, waste of $$!!

  27. 27

    Crowe sucks it hard! He'll never top Kevin Costner. Who wants to see an ugly over the hill fat wrinkled middle aged Robin Hood anyway? He had the orginial casted Maid Marion fired because she made him look old and fat. Get botox and loose 50 lbs you has been.

  28. 28

    Re: gramtoofive – Why doesn't Perez meet him first before judging him?! Yeah, these "celebrities" are always making themselves available for their fans, much less spending enough time with them to really get a chance to get to know them. Get real.

    He plays Galdiator over and over and .. you know

  31. 31

    russel is having a good wank as we speak

  32. 32

    Mr. Lawson was lucky there weren't any telephones around

  33. 33

    Wow, you guys are all such idiots. If you actually LISTENED to the radio interview you'd know that the interviewer was trying to push Crowe's buttons. Surely an Englishman would be able to distinguish the difference between an Irish and Northern English accent. He was trying to fuck with Crowe. Saying the accent, which was a very specific one, is one that it's not, when you are in full awareness of what it actually is, is in its entirety an insult. So what if he succeeded to get Crowe mad, at least we know that Crowe doesn't keep his emotions bottled up inside. And he didn't STORM out, he got up and left, after waving goodbye. He had ever right to do so.
    And uh, bee tee dubbz, he didn't fire Sienna Miller if any of you watch what are called "full interviews". He actually had no say in the matter. So much for that.

    Over reacting to an undiplomatic, snarky little host who won't make in his life what Crowe makes for one film, is beneath Crowe. Russell cares about his work, and he bit at the bitchy bait. I'd watch him if he sounded chinese, alright?

  35. 35

    I don't like the short, fat ego bitch. He needs to leave and go far far away.

  36. 36

    When is everyone going to wake up?!?!?! Russell Crowe is an ASSHOLE. I cant believe people still want see his movies after he beat a hotel employee with a phone.

  37. 37

    Watthafukeva…This man gives good movie and I'd pay to go see him in flicks cuz yeah,he brings it. Gladiator was epic as this probably will be too..

  38. 38

    When I saw "Robin Hood" today there were a LOT of people in the first showing. Must be all those unemployed people looking for jobs thanks to your presidet Barry. Fuck you, Mario! You wish you could have a hissy fit. I hope Russell bitch slaps you. We all know how much you cry when you get slapped. I bet the BEP's manger laughs everyday at how much he made a grown man cry.

    Russell Crowe is a great actor. What have you ever done to be famous for, Mario? Oh that's right, nothing. You're only "famous" for ridding other people's coatails with your snarky comments and wanting to fuck John Mayer. You're a sick disgusting pig who can't handle a harmless bitch slap. You're so pathetic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  39. 39

    eh….. lets tlk bout d elephant in d room.. whats wrong with the irish thing???

  40. 40

    no shit, i thought it was Irish too when i saw the trailer LOL

  41. 41

    This actor is one of the best! Gladiator was incredible. Don't talk shit if you don't have an academy award to back you up

  42. 42

    Maybe if you were not so bloated people would want to come see your movies again. Get a grip Russell. You are not creating an atom bomb. You are simply an actor. Win some and lose some. Get over it. Cut out the food or alcohol or whatever it is that is giving you that extra bloated look. Not attractive for a movie star. Also, maybe you are losing fans due to your attitude. Did you ever consider that Russell? Get off your high horse. They will not be nominating you for a Nobel Peace Prize any day soon. You act. You read lines that other smarter people write for you!

  43. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: Toosmart – He's always been a good sized man. He's a big, athletic mesomorph (body type) with a larger, roundish face. Always was. Bloat? How do you know? Middle age weight gain, maybe a bit. Women mostly think he looks pretty good, and men wouldn't beak off at him in a dark alley.

  44. 44

    The new Robin Hood looks stupid. A fat middle-aged Austrlian should NOT be playing Robin Hood. Secondly, I'd be happy to have an Irish accent. lol

  45. 45

    Good for him. That was an ignorant comment. Crowe spent a lot of time in Pittsburgh last year. (I forget why) People really liked him. He was just like a normal guy rambling around town, going to football games and arts festivals. All the accounts of people running into him were very positive. Unlike Sienna Miller, who got bad press every time she opened her mouth or set foot out of the door. And Sienna is from a small town north of Pittsburgh.

  46. 46

    i heard it it was hilarious. it wasnt even that big of a deal. im northern and abroad i get told i sound irish, obviously to me they sound nothing alike but i guess to untrained ears they might

  47. 47

    The truth hurts. The truth is this guy cannot act for shit. How he won an oscar is beyond me…

  48. 48

    alright people, enough with the "russell crowe is fat" or chunky or bloated or whatever other unnecessary adjectives come to mind. he's a real mad. he gained weight for a MOVIE entitled BODY OF LIES in which his character was supposed to be fat. so really, you're giving him a compliment when you say that, cause it just proves how seriously he takes his work. any other actor would have put on a fat suit. russell crowe is the real deal.
    secondly, who the fuck else would be better than russell crowe for robin hood? he is a heroic figure who is 100% committed to all the good he does; just as russell is. forget obtaining 1 oscar, he deserved one for the insider, a beautiful mind, master and commander, and cinderella man too. he;s humble enough not to dwell over the fact that he doesn't have more. he's happy with his one oscar, unlike many other actors who spend their careers chasing the academy award and the academy award alone. russell crowe does it for the love, not the glory.
    ps, he practically wrote the script for robin hood, having read a near 100 books on the subject. watch some interviews instead of assuming shit.

  49. 49

    looooooooooooooove him he is perfect and i dont blame his response he was being pushed and bullied and also HELLO ..does anyone remember kevin costners accent in robinhood..LMAO sometimes he had one sometimes he didnt!!! hysterical!! I LOVE RUSSELL CROWE I am his biggest fan!!!

  50. 50

    russell crow seems to be very open to meeting people, fans or not. He and the Merry Men were all over Rome singing and meeting fans and from the comments on the internet and you tube, they said he couldn't have been nicer. It seems no one talks about the nice things he does, only the bad. I guess a lot of you have never had a bad day and are always wonderful. More power to you.

  51. 51

    he's a good actor but he's been freaking out for the past couple of years! tone it down, man!

  52. 52

    Russel mon cher…. you started in Neighbours for a reason. Good to see that over the years your 'acting' skills are still as wooden as ever

  53. 53

    I am sure Russell Crowe will be available for rehab after hearing his numbers. Crowe is NO Robin Hood. Robin Hood finishes No. 2 after Iron Man 2. Iron Man 2 was released weeks ago. Crowe looked terrible, he was no hero, and audiences are sick of him. Sign him up for Celebrity Rehab.

    If you listen to the audio, the interviewer was kind of being a jackass basically calling Russell out on doing a shitty job and acting & screwing up the accent. I might have gotten a little offended too if I were him…
