Russell Crowe's Father Has Died - Read His Touching Tribute

Russell Crowe is mourning the death of his father John, who passed away on Tuesday (March 30) at the age of 85.

The Oscar-winning actor revealed that his dad died in Coffs Harbour on the New South Wales north coast of Australia.

“I arrived back in the bush last night. Today, although the sun is shining and the torrential rain has abated, this date will forever be tinged with sadness. My dear old man, my beautiful dad, the most gentle of men, has passed away,” Russell wrote on Twitter.

He continued, “I’m posting this because I know there are people all over the world who’s heart he touched and who’s ribs he tickled with his sparkly eyes and his cheeky attitude to everyone, and everything, and this is probably as efficient a method as any to pass on the news.”

Russell was just photographed at a rugby game with the cast of Thor: Love and Thunder, days before it was revealed that he’s joining the cast.
