Crowe Slams Hollywood Greats

Movie hardman RUSSELL CROWE has slammed Hollywood greats ROBERT DE NIRO and HARRISON FORD for endorsing products in advertisements.

The Antipodean OSCAR-winner tells the American edition of GQ magazine he is disgusted by successful actors who top up their huge film salaries with foreign advertising contracts.

Crowe fumes, "I don't use my celebrity to make a living.

"I don't do ads for suits in Spain like GEORGE CLOONEY or cigarettes in Japan like HARRISON FORD. And on one level, people go, 'Well, more fault to you, mate, because there's free money to be handed out.'

"But to me it's kind of sacrilegious - it's a complete contradiction of the f**king social contract you have with your audience.

"I mean, ROBERT DE NIRO's advertising AMERICAN EXPRESS. Gee whiz, it's not the first time he's disappointed me. It's been happening for a while now."
