Flat whites and sensitive souls

Excerpt from Sunday Night interview with Mike Willesse:

“I’m extremely sensitive, and that’s probably where some of my negative stuff comes from,” Crowe tells Sunday Night’s Mike Willesse.

“I’m a little bit intuitive, so I know from a handshake whether somebody means me good or ill.

“And sometimes I don’t want to, once I know where they’re coming from I don’t want to play that game anymore.”

Shipping discount on biscuit tins and a bit of news

Great tip from reader Christine which I followed with success, paying less than half the listed shipping price:

Hi – to anyone who’s interested in buying a Water Diviner biscuit tin via Ebay and is put off by the high international shipping cost – you can halve this by asking the vendor to empty the biscuits out! Then all you have to do is to Google Anzac biscuits for the recipe, make a batch and refill the tin!

The Truth About Us features Russell Crowe and Mickey Castellano

2nd Update: Read more about the program and there is a video at the link with short snippets of Russell and Mickey.

Update – Message from Angela Pulvirenti at her Facebook page:

Sent Mr Russell Crowe a link to his episode last night. He is in the US filming with Ryan Gosling. He’s not afraid to be critical so it was a nervous wait while he watched…but then this text message “you know, that was really cool. Thank you”. Be still my heart.


Foxtel (Australia) television network Bio begins a new 30 minute segment  interview series, “The Truth About Us”. The first segment airs Decmber 1 at 7:30 EDT.

Episode one features Academy Award-winning actor Russell Crowe and his colourful onset costumer and dresser, 72 year-old New Yorker Mickey Castellano.

Friends and collaborators for almost 20 years, Mickey and Russell first met on the 1995 set of Virtuosity and from 1998 to 2010, Mickey travelled the world with Russell on every film he made.

“The Truth About Us was a truly enjoyable experience for me and an overwhelming one for my long time mate and costumer, Mickey Castellano. Mickey has never been interviewed before on any medium, let alone about his connection to me,” said Russell Crowe.

“He used to be so tough and edgy, but now, as Angela Pulvirenti captured so deftly in her interview, he is a lovely beating heart of emotion.”

Hoping this comes to YouTube or becomes somehow available for the rest of the world.

– thanks to Steph
