Russell Crowe Thinks Older Actresses Should Stop Whining About The Lack Of Female Roles In Hollywood

“To be honest, I think you’ll find that the woman who is saying that [the good roles for women have dried up is] the woman who at 40, 45, 48, still wants to play the ingénue, and can’t understand why she’s not being cast as the 21-year-old. … Meryl Streep will give you 10,000 examples and arguments as to why that’s bullshit, so will Helen Mirren, or whoever it happens to be. If you are willing to live in your own skin, you can work as an actor. If you are trying to pretend that you’re still the young buck when you’re my age, it just doesn’t work.”

Ugh, can someone please throw a phone at Russell Crowe‘s head, because he really needs to STFU. In an interview with Australia’s Women’s Weekly, the temperamental actor opined about how the best thing about Hollywood is how many roles there are for every stage of life — including for women, so don’t listen to what all those whiny broads are saying! Nevermind the fact that studies have shown that women are grossly underrepresented in Hollywood, with approximately 30 percent of the speaking roles in film in any given year; nevermind the many, many, many respected female actresses who have complained about the lack of roles for women, in particular older women; nevermind, say, this statistic which indicates that the majority of all female roles are for 21 to 39-year-olds — Russell Crowe says there are TONS of great roles for women of all ages! Russell Crowe presumes to speak for Meryl Streep and Helen Mirren, two of the best known older actresses who still manage to find work! Russell Crowe knows all! Keep reading »

Russell Crowe Waxes Philosophic On Circumcision

“Circumcision is barbaric and stupid. Who are you to correct nature? Is it real that GOD requires a donation of foreskin? Babies are perfect … I love my Jewish friends, I love the apples and the honey and the funny little hats but stop cutting yr babies … I will always stand for the perfection of babies, i will always believe in God, not man’s interpretation of what God requires … last of it, if u feel it is yr right 2 cut things off yr babies please unfollow and f**k off, I’ll take attentive parenting over barbarism.”

Russell Crowe gets Twitter-happy on the issue of circumcision. Tell us how you really feel about it, Russell. Your Jewish friends with the funny hats are dying to know more about your hardcore circumcision beliefs. This morning Russell released a half-assed apology for his foreskin outburst saying, “[I] wasn’t intending offense, certainly wasn’t intending to provide fodder for lazy journalists. I can’t apologize for my heartfelt belief … I have a deep and abiding love for all people of all nationalities, I’m very sorry that I have said things on here that have caused distress … I realize that some will interpret this debate as me mocking the rituals and traditions of others. I am very sorry.” This lazy journalist accepts your apology based on your deep and abiding love for me. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
