Russell Crowe Refused To Participate In A Q&A For “The Loudest Voice” Because He Didn’t Like How The Host Talked About Roger Ailes
The first of several projects about the late Fox News CEO and alleged sexual harassment PSA villain Roger Ailes is finally upon us. Showtime’s miniseries The Loudest Voice, aka the Russell Crowe one and not the Nicole Kidman/Charlize Theron/John Lithgow one, premiered last night. Earlier this week, Russell was scheduled to appear at a Q&A about the show in New York with the rest of his castmates. But according to Page Six, Russell had no As for those Qs, because he threw a temper tantrum over how Roger Ailes was introduced to the audience.
No, that headline does not imply that Russell Crowe (giving mid-life crisis Kris Kringle above) had the runs, it means he was Aussie levels of pissed off that someone had the audacity to suggest that he actually read for a part. This time it was Deadpool 2 creator Rob Liefeld on the receiving end of that Russell Crowe fury (take a breath, Azealia Banks, he’ll get back to you in a minute). Digital Spy says that Rob shared a heartwarming Twitter morsel about being the latest to receive the wrath of Russell while speaking on a Las Vegas Comic-Con panel promoting Deadpool 2.
It looks like Azealia Banks has been pretty busy on the internet recently, and for the first time in a long time, it’s not because she ran someone off Instagram. Unfortunately, her online activity is the result of a messy situation. Back in October 2016, Azealia attended a party with rapper RZA at Russell Crowe’s hotel suite in Beverly Hills. An allegedly drunk Azealia was thrown out after getting violent with other guests. Azealia’s side of the story was that Russell ejected her from the party by choking her, spitting on her, and calling her the n-word.
Russell was never charged, but Azealia isn’t done. She wants to sue Russell. The only problem is, she doesn’t have the money to spend on a lawsuit. General public and random internet strangers, this is where you come in.
When the sexual assault allegations against Roger Ailes came out two years ago, it painted a picture of a guy you might have actively avoided like a trash can full of rotten ground beef. But today it’s looking like people can’t get enough of the late Fox News chairman’s story. Charlize Theron is playing Megyn Kelly in a movie about the Roger Ailes sexual assault scandal. Another Roger Ailes project in the works, and this one will star Russell Crowe as the corpulent creep.
The mystery of who dropped $7,000 for Russell Crowe’s leather Cinderella Man jockstrap at auction has been solved. But before you go thinking John Oliver is some kind of weirdo who really wanted Russell Crowe’s jockstrap for a “personal” collection, it’s not like that. It will soon be making its way to one of the last remaining Blockbuster stores in Alaska.
Russell Crowe’s divorce from his wife of nine years, Danielle Spencer, is close to being finalized. So he celebrated by selling a bunch of Russell Crowe swag through Sotheby’s Australia, according to People. Included among the memorabilia was his leather jockstrap, which went for $7,000. And believe you me, that jockstrap has seen some AK-SHUN. Those nights when Russell wasn’t kicking Azealia Banks out of hotel room dinner parties or trying to murder hotel clerks with phones, he was down at the Ramrod making all the (uncut) power bottoms gasp with his beefy majesty. If that leather jock could talk! Wait – wut? Oh, it was the leather jock he wore in Cinderella Man? Oh, ok. Nevermind. The jury will disregard that Russell Crowe as leather-daddy fantasy.
