Russell Crowe Got Jared Kushner's Help Playing Roger Ailes After Meeting at This Celeb's Birthday Party

Russell Crowe played the role of Roger Ailes, the former exec at Fox News, in The Loudest Voice, which aired last year, and now we’re learning how he prepared for the role.

“I remember when you were preparing for Roger Ailes, you were compiling all the information about him. How did you do that?,” Russell was asked by Nicole Kidman in a conversation with Variety.

He responded, “Well, that’s a funny thing. Because you tend to take advantage of situations that come up. You were in New York for Hugh [Jackman]’s birthday party, right?”

After Nicole responded that she was there, Russell added, “And Ivanka [Trump] came in. So that gave me the opportunity to have a very long conversation with Ivanka’s husband [Jared Kushner]. And he had a very direct relationship with Roger over their presidential campaign. Phone calls every Sunday. So it gave me that contemporary insight that the book could not give me.”

Nicole said, “I had no idea you met [Jared Kushner] at that party,” and Russell added, “Nobody else was talking to him.”
