Russell Crowe AGREES With Adam Lambert Les Misérables Review

Well…

If you thought some eye-liner wearing ex-reality show contestant could insult Russell "I Was The Gladiator" Crowe and get away with it you were…. completely right!

A few days ago respected film critic American Idol alum, Adam Lambert, took to Twitter to tell his followers Les Misérables' "score suffered massively with great actors PRETENDING to be singers."

Crowe's revealed his own feeling about the musical flick after a fan (clearly trying to stir the pot) asked him how he felt about Adam's review, Russell kindly replied:

Oh daaang!

That sounds like Russell actually agrees with Adam!

We have a feeling Les director, Tom Hooper, is NOT going to be pleased to hear that — though, we're sure Russ isn't loosing sleep over it.

Like we said, he's the motherf*cking Gladiator! He can speak his mind as he damn well pleases!

    Well, this 'eye-liner wearing ex-reality show contestant' happened to tour with QUEEN last summer. So yes, he must really suck on what he's doing.

    Glad to see that! I hate seeing people hate on others just for an opinion. Glad Russell has some class

    Perez do you just post non-stories? From what Russell wrote he just said that the director wanted it more raw rather than super polished singers singing, which makes sense for a movie that has such dramatic and depressing context.

    It's like when you write titles like "Chris Martin cheating on Gwenyth with Keira Knightly" and then it's just about him reading a book. Really?

    Lambert is an ugly, screeching homo. His opinion is not relevant or insightful. It's not like he's got any real talent.
    .
    Re: Laura – Yes. But he can't sell a tour on his own, and Queen has been nothing since Mercury died. Lambert isn't fit to lick his decaying ass.

    Raw and real is EXACTLY what it was — actors acting and singing their lines. Not some sweet perfect performance. I agree with Russell and not with Adam, who's an idiot.

    Re: Pansy Hunter – Pansy, FYI, his Glam Nation international tour of 113 concerts sold out virtually every show.

    Re: fid – Couldnt agree more, taking Russells words out of context doesnt make it a story.

    You sound disappointed Mario? Why is that? Everyone knows you have it out for Adam Lambert. Did he turn you down?

    Personally, I LOVED the movie and in particular I think that Russell wasn't given nearly enough due for how amazing his performance was and the same goes for the actress that played Eponine. To me they were the two highlights of the movie. It was raw and gritty but that's what made the story such a great adaption

    Kudos to Russell for actually shoving Adam's comment in his face!! Learn how to read between the lines Perez. Russell praises the director of the movie and NOT Adam's comment!

    Re: irvinegirl – I guess you're the idiot since Russell and Adam agree with each other.

    I understand what Russell's saying. I think I prefer raw and real to over the top drama diva that could be toned down about ten notches.



  14. 14

    This is a very non-story. Russell is just agreeing that it wasn't a certain way but thats how it's supposed to be. I'm glad its raw and real, I wouldn't want to hear any of the songs any other way, 'A Little Fall of Rain' is sung while Eponine is dying, you can't polish that you need the raw emotion like in the show. To be able to act while singing with that power is true talent, I admire anyone that does it well.



  15. 15

    of course Russell wouldve liked his vocals sweetened because he sounded shittier than everybody else. Maybe he should ask to go on Glee where they always sweeten the vocals?

    Re: Lady Says
    …and Lambert agreed with you, Lady, about Eponine. His tweets also included ""Anne Hathaway as Fantine and Enjolras were the exceptions for me. Helena B Carter and Sasha B Cohen were great too. Eponine's voice was cool too…" and ended his convo with fans with "One more clarification: DO go see it for Anne Hathaways performance. It's was breathtaking." If Perez was going to try and turn this into a story he should have included more of the conversation…but then that would have changed the tone he was going for.

    Adam just set himself up to be critized if he ever attempts acting. Most successful actors are triple threats. Not every singer is a triple threat. They usually just excel at one thing. Kudos to the entire cast of Les Mis!

    Sorry do not like musicals so will not be watching.
    THey did this movie as a drama a few years ago with a good cast. Getting ready to go to bed early so will try and look it up tomorrow if I get a chance.

    Of course Russell agrees with Adam, he is not dumb and since the movie ad is: MUSICAL, Russell knows that great vocals matter hence he agrees with Adam, except for Anne the rest is so-so and yes, they bring the movie to a lower level.
    LES MIZ are noyhing new and all revolves around the music, this was a film to make money, sorry, my feeling is that more will come, jus wait, retro movies done with new actors.
    He should have left the play the way it was…perfect voices, just perfect.
    Way to go Russell for being true, does not matter if the director is happy or not, it's true what Russell and Adam say.

    Adam CAN sing, CAN dance and CAN act, did for many years, so yes he knows what he is talking about.
    Check your facts and go back 12 or 14 years of Adam's career, he did a paly with Val Kilmer, the critics only praised Adam, and on, and on.
    You think you know Adam but you are barely aware of his work.

    Re: Ha! – Adam's comments should never have been said. It's stunningly bad behavior for a performing artist to diss a colleague or competitor. Look at the misbehavior from Charlie Sheen when he was pushed out of "two and a half men": no comments from his colleagues on the show except about wanting to get to work. Nothing about Charlie.

    Adam's not behaving very well. If he wants to leave performing and become a critic, he can. But, professionally, he's best keeping his trap shut.

    It isn't about him being right or wrong. It's about him dissing other artists.

    Glad Russell had some class unlike some morons here and this wannabe "important", non-celebrity that is "Perez hilton" . Use your own name to begin with MARIO. Maybe then ppl would give start paying some attention to you.On second thought, even that wouldn't help. You will always be a loser anyway. And that's probably why Adam didn't fix you up with the guy you thought was cute at his party .Troll.

    Re: Victoria – Actually, I heard that he kind of wanted Adam to fix him up with one of his friends. Guess neither Adam nor his friend wanted anything to do with Mario. Who would ! :P

    The movie made my ears bleed. Les Miz, the stage play, is the best musical ever. As for the movie I agree with much of what Adam said especially regarding Hathaway - her acting was brilliant unfortunately my ears needed to hear Elaine Page. After 30 minutes of fingernails going down the black board, I couldn't take any more. The added production values just washed out the story. What the hell were people thinking in casting Jackman and Crowe, it would have made as much sense casting Stallone and Travolta
