Russell Crowe - Security Blunder Almost Kept Crowe From Oprah Show

RUSSELL CROWE almost missed his appearance on OPRAH WINFREY's huge show at the Sydney Opera House on Monday (13Dec10), after security guards failed to recognise him.
The Gladiator actor was one of the superstars who helped Winfrey celebrate her mammoth TV talk show at the famed venue after she took filming Down Under earlier this month (Dec10).
But he could have been left watching at home after bouncers wouldn't let him through the gates - because they didn't have him on their guest list.
During filming, he told Winfrey, "I walked here and just went up to the gate, but the security guy wasn't sure what to do. It wasn't on his running sheet."
The TV titan replied in an Aussie accent, joking, "There's a guy out here who says he's Russell Crowe."
Crowe went on to sing a rousing performance of Peter Allen's I Still Call Australia Home alongside Hugh Jackman, Olivia Newton-John, Nicole Kidman and her husband Keith Urban.
