Russell Crowe's Meeting with the Pope Turned Down by Vatican

Russell Crowe's Meeting with the Pope Turned Down by Vatican

Russell Crowe hits the blue carpet for the premiere of his new film Noah on Monday evening (March 17) at the October Cinema Theatre in Moscow, Russia.

The 49-year-old actor was seen looking much more casual in a blue shirt and jeans earlier in the day while attending a photo call.

Russell was hoping to have a meeting with Pope Francis this week while bringing the movie to Italy, but Paramount Pictures was not able to schedule a meeting as the Vatican thought that his “appearance in St. Peter’s Square could disrupt and complicate the event because he is such a well-known star,” according to THR.

What’d he want to talk to him about? Maybe something could have been scheduled privately? It’s a missed opportunity for certain, but not surprising.

If the things written about Crowe are correct, he’s one of the most arrogant characters around today. Why in the world would the Pope want to waste his time with this fellow? There are decent people who contribute to the welfare of their fellow man and actually deserve the Pope’s time.

@Lizzie:
Yup, like Putin.

Crowe doesn’t seem like a movie star anymore. He looks like anyone’s hubby. If they expect to continue appearing in films, actors should take better care of their appearance and not let themselves get too pudgy.

@Lizzie:
Wow, and no one can grow and mature over time? I mean as we grow older, wiser, more self-aware we wish to live a deeper life. And why can’t people forgive anymore? He’s made his amends and has moved forward, why can’t you? Gheeze.
