Crow Slams Luhrmann For Non Payment

RUSSELL CROWE has slammed fellow Australian BAZ LUHRMANN for failing to pay for stables the actor built for him. Horse riding enthusiast Crowe set up the stables on his ranch near Sydney for Luhrmann's forthcoming outback epic Australia - and was secretly hoping the move would secure him a role in the movie. But Crowe failed to land the role and was left to foot the bill for the newly assembled stables. He says, "I was going to be in that film and I was happy to build the stables. But the way things turned out we didn't do it together - and no one's paid me." Australia stars Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman.

HUGH AND DEBBRA...

I am a fan of Russell Crowe who has been fortunate to have been offered good scripts and used them well. It is unfortunate there was a disagreement between Baz and Russell which resulted in Russell not landing the role and it was offered to Hugh Jackman.In the circumstances if Russell was building stables for the film he should have had a contract to cover himself. After all if Baz could not use the stables as he had to replace his original choice you can hardly expect him to pay. It may be better if they talked and see if they could work something out rather than complaining in print ?However, I am an avid fan of Hugh and I think he is a superb actor - his talents are amazing, he is handsome and his personality and behaviour are beyond reproach. He has charisma and a wonderful sense of fun. He has more than proved himself on film and the stage for top directors to hand him top class scripts which they know will be exptertly handled with all the emotions required.
