“The umbrella word is ‘relentless’ – that’s how you make a feature film,” says Crowe. “If you don’t have an individual energy that matches what’s required by the nature of your undertaking, well mate, you’re just not going to get there. You have to be relentless – on everything, about everything, on a day-to-day, hour-to-hour basis.”
The Water Diviner added to its AACTA wins with Best Film (co-winner with The Babadook) and Best Supporting Actor Yilmaz Erdogan. Congratulations to Russell, Keith and all the cast and crew! Video of Ryan Gosling crashing Russell’s satellite feed from L.A. below:
The Water Diviner is nominated for 8 AACTAs including Best Picture and Best Lead Actor. The main awards will be held Thursday (Australia time) and the international awards will be in Los Angeles this Saturday.
Perhaps most impressive, though, is Sixty Loft, the hotel’s best suite. The two-storey residence includes a living room with an L-shaped velvet sofa, a four-poster bed, a fireplace as well as a private balcony in addition to a rooftop deck with sun loungers, offering unobstructed views of the city, including of the Freedom Tower and the Empire State Building. So impressed was Russell Crowe upon seeing this space, Sixty Soho’s manager would later tell me, that he expressed interest in purchasing the loft for himself. Fortuitously, though, it remains available for bookings.
“Matthew was presented with a watch by Russell Crowe, which the actor had chosen himself with black frame and silver dials to match Matthew’s hair colour.
It was a thank you to his team for their service. Another of the team got a gold watch to reflect his brash colourful character, and another got a watch with large numbers to improve his understanding of time.”
– sounds like Russell. Thanks and a zing all in one.
Russell tweets about his upcoming visit to South Korea:
I’m off to South Korea on Saturday. My first time. Who’s got the intel on Seoul? I wonder if anyone in South Korea knows I’m coming…
Who is seeing @WaterDivinerANZ this weekend ? Looking forward to screening it in South Korea on Monday night, 5000+ at premiere screenings
Souths fan Kerry Harrison lobbied for her company and won official match sponsorship of the World Club Challenge clash between Super League Grand Final champions St Helens and NRL Premiership winners South Sydney Rabbitohs. The match will be held February 22 at Old Trafford in Stretford, England. “If Russell Crowe is there he’ll be sitting with us and we’ll definitely have to get a picture!” she told the In-Cumbria Weekly.
‘Russell and I had a chat before I started working on Terminator and he was just preparing me for the sacrifice you have to make when you get in to ‘leading men’ stuff,’ he said. ‘He emphasised the importance of discipline – what you need to be prepared to give up and throw yourself into.’
“I’m always working on ideas for new songs and albums. I recently wrote the title song for a forthcoming Russell Crowe film called Fathers & Daughters. What inspired that song was the theme of the story, which is a father daughter relationship. I have three daughters and was very moved watching the powerful performances between Russell and Amanda Seyfried. It struck me on a deep level and the song is written as a letter from a father to a daughter.”
