Russell Crow Slams Robert De Niro And Others

RussellCrowe.jpgThis is just disgusting. Don’t get me wrong, Russell Crowe (love him or hate him) is EASILY one of the best actors alive today. This man has acting chops that could cut down a forest. But no matter how good you are, you’ve gotta show some respect to the greats that have come before you or are even still in the game.

The happy go lucky folks over at Contact Music give us this little nugget:

Movie hardman RUSSELL CROWE has slammed Hollywood greats ROBERT DE NIRO and HARRISON FORD for endorsing products in advertisements.

The Antipodean OSCAR-winner tells the American edition of GQ magazine he is disgusted by successful actors who top up their huge film salaries with foreign advertising contracts. Crowe fumes, “I don’t use my celebrity to make a living.

“I don’t do ads for suits in Spain like GEORGE CLOONEY or cigarettes in Japan like HARRISON FORD. And on one level, people go, ‘Well, more fault to you, mate, because there’s free money to be handed out.’

“But to me it’s kind of sacrilegious – it’s a complete contradiction of the f**king social contract you have with your audience.

“I mean, ROBERT DE NIRO’s advertising AMERICAN EXPRESS. Gee whiz, it’s not the first time he’s disappointed me. It’s been happening for a while now.”

Holy crap. Crowe, you’re a deadly wicked actor… BUT SHUT YOUR MOUTH! You don’t go around dishing out disrespect to legends of the business. I don’t care if it is what you really think… shut up. Fine, say you don’t like actors endorsing products… that’s fair enough. But DON’T bring people’s names into it. Talented or not, if you don’t shut up you’ll get blacklisted.
