Russell Crowe - Ray Winstone Left Russell Crowe With Sore Ribs On Noah Set

Russell Crowe was left with bruised ribs on the set of Noah after fellow Hollywood hardman Ray Winstone repeatedly elbowed him in the chest.

The pair stars in the upcoming Biblical epic and Crowe has previously told how he developed hypothermia during the tough shoot as he was filming in freezing water for hours at a time.

Now it has emerged it was not the only health issue Crowe suffered during filming, as British actor Winstone took joy in striking him in the ribs during a fight scene.

Crowe tells British magazine Event, "He's acting royalty, that man. All the way back to Quadrophenia and Scum. We did this fight sequence where Ray is lying on top of me - and there's a bit of weight to Ray - and every time we did a take, just prior to 'Action!', he would drive an elbow into my ribs. I said, 'Mate, why are you doing that?'. And he goes, 'Because you're younger and I'm old and you should know to look out for a bloke like me.' It was great."
