Crowe slams at Bono and others

Crowe Slams Celebrity Campaigners


Russell Crowe has launched a scathing attack on A-list charity campaigners including Bono and Sir Bob Geldof - because he believes they only want publicity. The Antipodean actor regularly donates to charity outside of the glare of the media spotlight and urges other stars to give quietly without publicly martyring themselves. He says, "I do my bit to improve the world but I think it's very important to get things done on the quiet. I'm sick to death of famous people standing up and using their celebrity to promote a cause. If I see a particular need, I do try to help. But there's a lot that can be achieved by putting a cheque in the right place and shutting up about it."

Why is Russell Crowe then telling everyone about how he gives to charity, if he thinks people should shut up about it??

I guess the only way to get publicity is to throw temper tantrums and phones at people.

Maybe he's angry because his own music career hasn't taken off yet.

we must all remember that Russell Crowe most likely articulated his opinions by painting on a cave wall somewhere and then the media picked it up off the wire and ran with it.

We're talking about a man who threw a telephone at a hard working hotel concierge...in the moderately distant future, he shall discover fire.

Didn't the concierge then immediately try to sue the pants off Crowe for getting a tiny cut on his cheek? He certainly was working hard

If there's three things Crowe's good at, it's acting, looking hot, and getting a rise out of people (in that order).

Russell is entitled to his opinion. I don't even know if that was aimed at Bono et al, the quote is only talking about how he deals with it... and not about anyone else. Quiet giving and not showboating is a big part of Russell's upbringing in the antipodies.
