Russell Crowe Was Too Fat For Movie Role

October 30, 2007 / Posted by:
Ridley Scott told Russell Crowe that he was too fat for a role in "Body of Lies." Ridley ordered Russell to drop 30 pounds in order to play the role of a CIA boss.
Ridley said, "I've shot with Russell for the past five weeks. That's why he's so sturdy-looking at the moment. He's losing weight. He was 30 pounds overweight to do the part."
First Ryan Gosling was too chunky for a movie and now Russell? Finally Hollywood is telling the dudes they need to lose a few instead of picking on the women all the time.
I went to see "The Devil Knows You're Dead" this past weekend with Phillip Seymour Hoffman and although I love him I don't want to see all his kibbles n' bits! Kibbles 'n bits with extra gravy! He has a sex scene with that hot bitch Marisa Tomei and his gut is like laying on her ass while he's hitting it from behind. I go to the movies to escape reality!
While we're talking about weight-loss, has anyone tried that diet shit Alli ? I want to try it, so I can be bikini ab-ready for Christmas ( don't ask). I want to try it, but if it makes your kidneys fall out, count me out! Wait, how much do kidneys weigh?
Here's Russell at a screening for "American Gangster" last night.
