In a recent interview with Variety to celebrate Gladiator‘s 20th anniversary, Russell Crowe opened up about his friendship with Joaquin that started when they worked on the movie together.

“There were a lot of people in that strange journalistic habit who wanted to just poke that fire and kept asking Joaquin about his brother and then about his relationship with me because we have that in the film,” Russell shared with the site, recalling the press tour that took place.

He added that “he just said something along the lines of, ‘Look, Russell treated me like a brother’ and it just hit me in a really heavy way.”

“The last time we got together we had just bumped into each other in a corridor and it was then followed by six or seven hours of just throwing away whatever it was we were supposed to do that day and just being in each other’s company,” Russell added.
