Russell Crowe's Quotes

  • One of the most painful things of the L.A. Confidential (1997) character I played was that the author, James Ellroy, kept telling me that Bud White wasn't a drinker. I said, "Come on, this is 1953. He's a blue-collar bloke, a cop. You're telling me he doesn't sit around with the boys after his shift and have a beer?". And Ellroy says, "Absolutely not." So for five months and seven days, I didn't have a drink. It's probably the most painful period of my life.
  • [on winning the Best Actor Oscar] If you grow up in the suburbs of anywhere, a dream like this seems kind of vaguely ludicrous and completely unattainable. But this moment is directly connected to those imaginings. And for anybody who's on the downside of advantage, and relying purely on courage, it's possible.
  • It's not really what I'd call a movie. I was stunned that Miramax wanted to buy it. I mean it's really rude. It showed me in a really bad light. It's also shoddily made. It's cobbled together. [expressing surprise that a low-budget documentary of his band, 30 Odd Foot of Grunts, has been picked up for worldwide distribution]
  • [on meeting Robert De Niro] I felt this tap on my shoulder and I turned around and, you know that De Niro fellow? Well, he didn't say a word. He didn't say "Hello", "Good evening" or anything or "Hi, I'm Robert". He just looked at me and he nodded his head and he smiled. And he walked off.
  • You don't have to like an actor to do a scene with him. You don't have to like a director. But it's just better if you do. And I think, you know, you've got to begin that with respect.

The Life and Career of Russell Crowe

One of the biggest stars of today’s Hollywood, Russell Crowe is a talented actor, musician, and film producer who has managed to leave an indelible mark in the industry. Born on April 7, 1964, in Wellington, New Zealand, he is the son of two film set caterers who also worked in the hospitality sector. However, it was his maternal grandfather, a cinematographer, who kick-started his lifelong affair with cinema. Crowe’s family moved to Sydney when he was four-years-old, and he started acting early on, making his TV debut in an episode of Spyforce in 1972.

Early Life and Education

Crowe attended both Vaucluse Public School and Sydney Boys High School before returning to New Zealand with his family at the age of 14. Here he studied at Auckland Grammar School with brother Terry and cousins Martin and Jeff before dropping out of high school at sixteen to purse acting full-time.

Acting Career

After his first professional gig as Eddie/Dr. Scott in The Rocky Horror Picture Show in Auckland, Crowe appeared in several Australian theatre productions, including Johnny from Bad Boy Johnny and the Prophets of Doom. He got his first film break in The Crossing in 199, but it was Proof and Romper Stomper that finally sealed his reputation with multiple Australian Film Institute awards for both roles.

Crowe’s first major Hollywood film break came in The Quick and the Dead, followed by 1999’s The Insider, Gladiator in 200 leading to massive success and various Academy Awards nominations including “Best Actor” – an award he won for Gladiator.

Notable Salaries

With a successful acting career spanning well over two decades, Crowe has been able to rake in substantial paychecks. He earned $5 million for 200’s ‘Gladiator’. That same year he earned $7.5 million for ‘Proof of Life’. In 2001 he earned $15 million for ‘A Beautiful Mind’, while he was paid $20 million for ‘Master and Commander’ (2003). He went on to earn another $20 million for ‘Robin Hood’ in 201. Base movie salaries alone brought him well over $150 million within 15 years, which is something quite substantial even by Hollywood standards.

Music Career

Crowe discovered his passion for music long before he started acting and had already been performing under the stage name ‘Russ Le Roq” towards the early 80s; his music career continued in parallel to his acting career; he managed to juggle both passions without compromising one over the other. He has been associated with ’30 Odd Foot of Grunts,’ even featuring as a lead vocalist and an instrumentalist.

However, after 1992, Crowe decided to go solo, prompt him to collaborate Canadian musician, Alan Doyle, and launch a successful U.S. tour under the name ‘Russell Crowe & The Ordinary Fear of God.’ Then in 2017, he once again teamed up with Doyle to form a new band called Indoor Garden Party, which also featured Scott Grimes, Samantha Barks and Carl Falk, among others.

Personal Life

Crowe met his wife, Danielle Spencer, his co-star in The Crossing, and the pair wed on his birthday in April 2003. They have two children together, Charles, born in December 2003, and Tennyson, born in July 2006. In late 2012, they separated, and their divorce was finalized in 2018, with Crowe holding an art of auction, β€œThe Art of Divorce,” while his ex-wife had her announcement show named “Divorce – the Musical.”


Both Crowe and Spencer have supported charities very actively, including Roman Inc, a charity for disadvantaged children founded by Crowe’s employee Roman Osin.

Awards and Honors

For his role in Gladiator, he won an Academy Award and received nominations in that category for A Beautiful Mind and The Insider. Crowe is also one of the only actors to have three consecutive Best Actor nominations at BAFTA. He has been nominated ten times in the BAFTA Awards category for Best Actor and has won 4 of them.

Real Estate

Crowe bought an apartment in Sydney for $14 million and sold it for $26 million after reigniting his divorce journey. He also had the opportunity to get a few properties while being in Bordeaux, New South Wales and Coffs Harbor.

What is Russell Crowe’s Net Worth and Salary?

Russell Crowe has a net worth of $120 million, with all his work in the music as well as film industry. However, it’s not only his on-screen presence that has helped him rake in millions over the years. In May 2013, the actor held an auction where he making as-yet-confirmed millions by selling off numerous items from his personal effects collection, including rare artwork and musical instruments. Moreover, he has co-owned the South Sydney Rabbitohs, Australia’s national Rugby League and digital cinema servers (theater systems).

Finally, with new films and television series in works for 2021 and 2022, including a role in “Thor 4”, with his significant net worth, and involvement in other business endeavors, Crowe does not seem to be settled down anytime soon.
