ohhhhh...Mr Crowe......I say!

LOL!!! From a local newspaper source:


*FURIOUS Russell Crowe pinned a TV executive against a wall in a bust-up at the BAFTA Awards.


The burly Gladiator star exploded with rage because his Best Actor acceptance speech was cut by the BBC.

He hunted down the show’s director Malcolm Gerrie, 51, at the post-awards dinner, then:

SLAMMED him against the wall in a storage room at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel and

LAUNCHED a foul-mouthed tirade, calling him a c*** and a mother-f*****.

Crowe went nose-to-nose with Malcolm after a poem he read out at Sunday night’s ceremony was dropped from the BBC1 transmission an hour later.

Malcolm was warned by his pal Sting, who had been sitting at Crowe’s table: “Careful, Russell wants blood.”

Stunned Malcolm was then escorted into a sideroom by two of Crowe’s security men, where the actor was waiting for him.

The doors were shut and the minders stood guard as Crowe, 37, roughed him up.

Crowe first quizzed Malcolm about his previous work on the Brit Awards and The Tube.

Then he told him: “I don’t give a f*** who you are. Who on earth had the f***ing audacity to take out the Best Actor’s poem?

“You f***ing piece of sh**, I’ll make sure you never work in Hollywood.”

Sources told The Sun that Crowe was inches away from Malcolm’s face and jabbing him in the chest with his finger.

The New Zealander, also nominated as Best Actor at the Oscars,then kicked three chairs across the room before storming out.

Russell had read out an Irish poem called Sanctity by Patrick Kavanagh at the awards, at the Odeon cinema in London’s Leicester Square.


***************************
SANCTITY

BY PATRICK KAVANAGH

To be a poet and not know the trade,
To be a lover and repel all women,
Twin ironies by which great saints are made,
The agonising pincer jaws of heaven.

******************************************

But the ceremony over-ran and A Beautiful Mind star Crowe’s poem was left on the cutting room floor. Award-winners had been told to keep speeches short.

But Crowe — who had been knocking back tins of Victoria Bitter from a case of the Aussie ale — insisted on launching into verse.


After the party incident, hotel staff asked Malcolm if he wanted the police called. He declined.

Dreamworks, the film company behind A Beautiful Mind, and the BAFTA committee later apologised to Malcolm.

A source at the BAFTAs told The Sun: “He was very shaken. Russell just lost it and was furious that his poem was left out.

“He spent ages preparing his speech and someone phoned to tell him the poem wasn’t on TV.

“It was an over-reaction and Malcolm thought he was going to get belted. He can’t believe Russell took it so badly.

“It was all very sinister the way he was led into a small room and Russell was there waiting for him.

“Malcolm said it felt like something out of Gladiator.

“But he stood up to him and managed to defuse the situation.”



Malcolm’s production firm Initial said: “We think Russell behaved unreasonably. It is a live show and has to be edited quickly. Other speeches had to be cut as well.”

A host of stars at the BAFTAs post-awards thrash included Dustin Hoffman, Anna Friel, Sissy Spacek — who stumbled on her way out — and Fellowship Award winner Warren Beatty.

Hot-headed Crowe was in a booze-fuelled nightclub brawl in Sydney two years ago, in which he bit a chunk out of a victim’s neck and spat it in his face.

He was on a flight to Australia yesterday and unavailable for comment.

Now THAT is funnier than hell. It amuses me to no end when I hear that someone has used that line. I had a film professor that was once told by a high-ranking studio executive "You'll never work in this town again!" Yep, that is not a line from the movies -- people actually say it. heheh..

Well, that says it all.

It seems Mr. Crowe has become quite full of himself lately...methinks he needs a dose of reality...maybe his next film will bomb and he'll be reduced to doing cheap slasher movies. Karma can be a bitch Russ.

Must be a family trait. His brother has not been endearing himself to the locals by expecting the "star" treatment.I presume Malcolm Gerrie is smaller, definitely older, probably had glasses too.Gos russell, we can't take you anywhere!!
I for one would prefer to be in Rusty's good books.He is a big boy with a very brooding aura.Bit like the little girl with thelittle curl...either very very good or very very horrid.
He really would love to be a singer/poet but........
I personally think he should quit Hollywood and just come home,plant trees, make babies, play cricket and sing with his band at his pub.
Ta maddie, I love my Big russ goss

i agree. although its extremely humorous and amusing, I don't think Russell Crowe do something like that

Ever seen an Alice with a stem like that? Come to think of it, did you ever see an Alice??

As ludicruous as it does sound..Russell is known for getting into fights. He's been dragged out of a few pubs at home.
It sounds nutty but it actually wouldn't surprise me.

Lmao, well edited maddie! Its all over the news here, so dont be too hasty in giving him any benefit of doubt. I'm sure it happened, but that was prolly a little exagerated.

I love Russell Crowe 'cos he's the anti Tom Cruise. He should punch out more people in Hollywood.
