Jason Gray-Stanford worked with
Crowe in two movies, Mystery, Alaska, and A Beautiful Mind,
and here is what he says:
worked with him twice now, and I've had an exquisite time both
private guy, he's a family guy. He
loves his farm and his family and his friends."
the naysayers out there who believe that Russell is that gruff
character, that speech (Oscar Acceptance speech) summed up a lot of who
truly loyal, incredibly generous, quite humble and has so much
integrity. Those qualities
are why I respect him so much.”
"I wish I
could be as honest as he is."
If these words are the qualities you are
looking for in an actor, Crowe can’t help himself but show these qualities on the screen.
So next time you hear fans jeer at
Crowe, or read any negative story about him, there is always more than one point of view.
Consider his interview with Jay Leno to promote A Beautiful Mind. They talked about this reporter who printed a story about the
cows that hurt one of Crowe's farm hands. Crowe was able to tell his side, that in fact, his cows are not
violent but “over-cared” for, and they don’t have horns so they
couldn’t have rammed anyone. So
at least in this one instance, Crowe was able to give his side of the story.
