Russell Crowe hopes for commercial result

Here’s a Huffington Post interview, originally from the press junket, reprinted to coincide with the dvd release of The Water Diviner – worth reading again for the many direct quotes:

“Here’s the thing, as an actor I used to think that I had the greatest job in the world.

“And then I did this. You know? And at this stage in my life this is, it really suits me to be doing this to you know but this is a gamble. This is the risk in play. It’s a three year process to direct a movie to this point now where it’s finally coming out and what’s on the line is essentially if I get a commercial result I buy my freedom. For 25 years I’ve been a gun for hire actor making lead roles and feature films and if Ridley Scott’s going to, wants to shoot in Morocco, we go to Morocco. If Darren Aronofsky wants to shoot in Iceland well, we’re going to Iceland. You know? I’ve got two boys. I’ve got an eight year old and an eleven year old and I need to be home more. So if I can wrest creative control, then I benefit in two ways. One is suits me now at this stage to actually run the show to make those creative decisions and also it means that my pre-production, post-production, the majority of any given year is going to be spent where my kids are so that’s the gamble but I need a commercial result.”

Greetings from Sydney, Australia!

I am travelling with my son Connor in Australia and at the moment we are back in Sydney after a week in Cairns. The Great Barrier Reef is endangered and may well disappear within our lifetimes so I urge you to go and see it and their rain forests if you can – we had a truly amazing experience there. Last night we were at ANZ Stadium for the game between the South Sydney Rabbitohs and the Newcastle Knights, and were honoured to be the guests of The Burrow. We did our best to learn the songs and sing loud and proud. It was a stunner of a game with the Bunnies back in their best form, all team members healthy and on hand to thump the Knights 52 to 6. Russell was present with Julie Burgess, mother of the mighty Burgess brothers – photos at Zimbio. Watch the match highlights and more at the official site of the South Sydney Rabbitohs

I have been posting the news at our twitter and Facebook accounts (see links to the right) which are easier for me to manage from my phone so my apologies for adding the news late to the website. In film news, Deadline says Russell is rumoured as being sought for a part in Kong Skull Island.

Also an interview with Mark Staufer, long time friend of Russell’s, back to when they were in a high school band together.

Russell is in L.A.

Apparently with the family and working with Carl Falk and Scott Grimes on the Crowe Doyle Songbook Volume VIII according to his post on twitter. The DT has photos of him at his favored cafe and with Charlie. Warning: Annette Sharp is still not over Russell beating her in that bike challenge.
