Hugh Jackman & Russell Crowe: who would you rather (for the holidays)?

Here are some new photos of Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe at the Sydney premiere of Les Miserables today… or yesterday… or tomorrow? At some point. Don’t ask me to figure out the time difference. I think it was “today”. I know you ladies will continue the long-standing fight about Hugh and how cute he is and whether or not he would be into you, and while you’re yelling about that, I will grab Russell Crowe and take him to my special place (“Bone-ville”). I know, he looks like a chubby, middle-aged d-bag, but I’m still into it. RUSTY 4 EVA.

So I thought I would take this opportunity to wish everybody merry Christmas and happy holidays. All of us here at Celebitchy hope that you stay safe and warm and happy, and that nothing cracked-out happens. If you are in the club and Lindsay Lohan walks in, just leave. The last thing you need is for your face to “accidentally” get in her fist’s way. Be careful while driving and try to get some Christmas Dong. I really am thinking of flying to Ireland to try to put a big red bow on THIS ONE.

Happy Holidays!

-Kaiser, Agent Bedhead and Celebitchy

    Seriously, is that even a question? Hugh is heavenly. Russell, as someone said on this site last week, looks like a homeless dude who’s been given a bath and a suit for the evening.

  2. Shannon says:

    Hugh!!! Is there even a question??

  3. Christine says:

    Seriously! A tall, handsome, super well-built guy (Hello, Wolverine! lol) who can sing. Or a beady eyed, paunchy, years past his heyday fellow with anger issues…Let me think hard about this one.

  4. lori says:

    Rusty looks more and more like a boiled potato. Gawd I love spuds.

    • I Choose Me says:

      Bwahahahaha. Ok your comment made me chortle for a good minute or so.

      Did you see him (Rusell) in The Man with the Iron Fists? He was sooo much fun in that movie and just based on this one scene, he looks like he really know what to do with his mouth. ;D

  5. SofiaR says:

    Hugh! That man floats my boat.

  6. Miss Kiki says:

    Hugh Jackman has a face carved by angels, Rusty on the other hand makes me want to gag.

  7. Aubra says:

    Hugh Jackman of course!!! Russel is looking like Uncle Fester or Curly from the Three Stooges

  8. Samantha says:

    That’s a no brainer on my part,Hugh for sure!!!!

  9. the original bellaluna says:

    Hugh, all day, EVERY day, ALL DAY LONG. Like the house is on fire, and the Malayan thing is an actuality.

    Nuff said. I digress….

  10. Chickie Baby says:

    Dang skippy on RUSTY 4 EVA! Get in line, sister. I’ll fight you for him.

  11. Maria_Spain says:


    ill pass from this 2 and take some fassdong plzz 8)

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Ha ha..YES! Count me in for Fass also.

      I will say that Hugh wins this particular battle easily though. But let’s face it-he doesn’t have much competition in ol’ Rusty. I love how Hugh always seems so happy, like he’s genuinely enjoying the ride. He always seems to show so much gratitude (take note, K-stew).

  12. Isa says:

    I’ll pass
    One is always grumpy and the other one is gay 😜 oooopss

  13. Isa says:

    Have you guys notice how hugh Jackman’s head is so small for his body? Beetlejuice

  14. Cubfan34 says:

    Russell his hair will grow out.

  15. phlyfiremama says:

    Garrett Hedlund~while all you other Celebitches are fighting for Hugh, I will snatch this delectable morsel up!!! Mwahahah…

  16. Talie says:

    Speaking of Lindsay…I do feel like she will pop off one last time for 2012 some time next week.

  17. lucy2 says:

    Yeah, like THAT is a tough decision.

    Happy and safe holidays to everyone!

  18. KellyinSeattle says:

    Neither for me; I’m still holding out for Mr. Banas. I call dibs; since you’ll want him , too, maybe we can work out a timeshare agreement.

  19. Red says:

    I used to think Russell, when he was Gladiator and then he faded into his entitled, ridiculous ways. Now, it’s Hugh, Hugh, Hugh. Not only because he’s handsome on the outside but even more beautiful on the inside.
    HOWEVER, if there is indeed a Fassbender under the Christmas Tree, then it’s Irish all the way. Sigh.

    Merry Christmas to you all, and thanks for the fun gossip throughout the year.

    Christmas request? Please NO more Kardashians.

  20. Memphis says:

    Is this a trick question?

    Russell lost his hotness years ago… Plus with his over inflated sense of self he would probably be a selfish lover.

    • Trashaddict says:

      Dunno about after the foreplay but if you’ve ever watched Russell’s kissing scenes, it sure looks like the ladies are enjoying themselves. But it is kind of sad how the over-the-top hotness dies for everybody, eventually. I suspect with Russell, at least after the sex and the looks are gone you’d still have something interesting to talk about.

  21. Newyorking says:

    My first thought too, do you even need to ask? Hugh any day all day! Russell can go back to being homeless at the subway stop he came from.

  22. Lisa says:

    I’d climb Hugh like a tree. Serious question, does Russell drink? He’s got alcohol and hangover breakfast bloat.

  23. Jane says:

    Hugh! What’s not to like? And I don’t think he is gay.

  24. themummy says:

    At one time I’d have been all hot and bothered just at the very idea of having a go at Russell Crowe, but now he looks like he is made of dough, and is also a basset hound. Until very recently I always thought Jackman just looked proportionally weird and that he wasn’t very handsome (although I loved him as an actor), but for some reason in the last month or so he’s suddenly hot to me.

    I’m so sad that Crowe circa Gladiator was a passing fluke and nothing more. Booo! He was insanely hot. Makes me definitely want to take care of myself because if he can go from *that* to *that* in just a few short years I’d better be extra careful.

  25. mia62 says:

    Definitely Russell, not for as much his looks as his intensity. Hugh on the other hand has always pinged my ‘aydar. Even in his Wolverine days, yes he was nice to look at, but I could never think of him as sexy cuz I just assume he plays for the other team. Never, ever had that feeling about Russell.

  26. Slim Charles says:

    Russell looks like Curly of the Three Stooges.

  27. exxo1111 says:

    Sorry – Russell forever for the intensity – Hugh is just good-looking

  28. grumpychick says:

    Russell looks like a thumb with a face to me.

  29. Vee says:

    Hugh! A thousand times over and over HUGH!

  30. Samantha says:


    I think Hugh Jackson is the smarmiest person alive. Also, closeted, for some reason. Like anyone would care if he came out.

  31. Starlight says:

    Russel still the best. I want to see him again with Kim Bassinger LA Confidential part 2 pls.

  32. I Choose Me says:

    I’ve said it before I’ll say it again Russell all the way, anytime, any day. I don’t care if he’s fat, I still wanna hit that.

    Rhyming not on purpose. :)

    Happy Holidays to all the awesome ladies of Celebitchy. Kaiser, CB & Bedhead).

    Shout out to Original Kitten, Eve, J.eyre, Miss (Dooliloo) Kay, cmc, Amelia, QQ, the original bellaluna, camille and MIN76.

    Thanks for the giggles, the snark and the often thoughtful, insightful posts on topical articles. Hugs to all!

  33. vic says:

    Russell Crowe for the win. HJ is a gay man.

  34. RobN says:

    Even if Hugh is gay, which I doubt, I’d take handsome, happy, singing gay guy over mean, drunk and doughy a-hole every time.

  35. 'SUP? says:

    Jackman 4eva! Crowe was so darned sexy back in his Gladiator day….he was the hottest…but hey age is not forgiving…snif :*(

  36. Renee Booth says:

    Anyone who thinks Russel Crowe is attractive needs their head checked! So Hugh for sure!

  37. Claire says:

    Give us a side of Eric Bana, Ryan Kwanten and Adam Garcia with that order!

  38. Shane says:

    Sorry to let the ladies know… Hugh is gay. And so is his wife. I know its controversial but it is the truth.

    • MB says:

      Umm, who the hell cares? The question is: Who would you rather? I think anyone with fully functioning eyes, ears and sense of smell would choose Hugh over Russell.
      Hugh Jackman is super handsome and a very nice guy. Russell Crowe is a fugly jerk. There is no contest.

  39. A says:

    Hugh all the way, although Russell ten years ago was gorgeous.

  40. Dredz says:

    Didn’t Russel turn down the role in “Australia” opposite Nicole? Thank God… Hugh is the real saving grace of that movie (and the cinematography). Nicole’s overly botoxed face ruins it for me.

    • Libby says:

      Russel. Because his hotness isn’t about his appearance (especially not in a photograph), it’s about his inherent badassery and masculinity.

    • Therese says:

      If I may go off on a tangent, I agree with you about Nicole Kidman and Australia, but I think it is more than a
      botoxed face. I never thought she was that good an actress. Just got some good parts, and was pretty good in some of them, but she was going on reputation. I think of her as a little girl playing dress up. I think that people blame her face for what was already there. I also blame Baz Lurman. I think he could have directed her better. Her singing Somewhere Over the Rainbow was horrible. Should have been cut. Hugh is smart enough to get the right nuances in there, but I don’t think she is. Still a shame about her face. Merry Christmas to you all.

  41. Christina says:

    I am not sure how there is even a question?? Hugh, obviously. I do not even care of he was gay. He is gorgeous and seems to have a great personality as well. I prefer him when he looks like Wolverine, but I will take him anyway I can get him! To me personally, Russell Crowe is gross. Gross, bloated and stumpy looking. Even when his body was in better shape, I have never liked his ruddy ,jowly face. BARF.

  42. YvetteW says:

    I think I would rather go out for drinks with both of them and watch the other ladies make their moves!

  43. Dahlia1947 says:

    Omg Hugh 4 sure! I loved Russell in L.A. Confidential (sor hot!). He was sexy, and vulnerable in that one, so yes veey hot! And of course he was steaming in Gladiator n Robin Hood, but it just ain’t happenin’ here! Sorry!

  44. Nan says:

    I never found Hugh appealing UNTIL I saw this post and compared him to Russell. NO comparison! haha!
    HUGH HUGH HUGH HUGH HUGH HUGH for me. Russell? Just, no.

  45. ramie says:

    Hugh is GORGEOUS!!! You can have Rusty AND Fassbender AND Cumberbatch AND a few other unmentionables in exchange!

  46. Snowpea says:

    What? It’s not even a question Christina?

    I think Russel is hot, cheeky, masculine, intense and would be crazy in bed.

    Hugh, on the other hand, is effeminate and nice and not sexy. I don’t even find him handsome. His head is tiny and his body is grossly inflated (I saw him having coffee the other day in Sydney and its even more noticeable in real life).

    See why it’s a question? People see things DIFFERENTLY!

  47. Katherine says:

    I remember Russell still being hot in Proof of Life – not sure the year. He wasn’t bad looking in that awful A Good Year. So he was able to muster up the hot for a while after Gladiator.

    Here he looks like an aged Bud White. Not a great look. While I can certainly see Hugh’s attraction he just doesn’t do it for me. So for me, I think I have to wash my hair tonight. ;)

  48. carlino altoviti says:

    Russell needs to lose some weight and go to a gym to recover a good shape.

  49. Nina says:

    Never been hot for Hugh, but I must admit he looks very dashing in these photos. Russell, who is probably closer to my type, looks pale and doughy here. So, my answer is neither one… I’m saving my holiday hoo-hah for the gorgeous, super sexy dudes from STRIKE BACK!!

  50. Melissa says:

    I only really found Hugh hot as Wolverine. Russell, here, isn’t that great. However circa 1992 in his Hando days…hoo boy :p

  51. xoxokaligrl says:


    I’m getting tired of seeing caps on actors teeth.

  52. Tuxedo Cat says:

    Hugh no contest. Before I knew Russell was so nasty there might have been a chance, but def Hugh.

  53. CC says:

    Hugh all the way. Russell looks like a Russet Potato.

  54. FirstTimer says:

    Hugh! Always a perfect gentleman.

  55. KS says:

    Hugh Jackman always seems like such a genuinely nice guy….the story on here about his wife was great, and all Hugh fans should go check out the Daily Mail pics of him goofing off with airport staff. Knowing someone famous is actually down to earth makes me a huge fan.

  56. Fran says:

    Is this a trick question? russell looks like a walking toe in these pictures…

  57. Meanchick says:

    Jackman absolutely! I’d also take Crowe, who would have to wear his Gladiator costume and say things like, “Are you not satisfied?!”

  58. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    I choose neither! My hubby is way hotter than either of these 2 ;) .

    And Happy Holidays to my fellow Celebitchy ladies :D .

  59. CuteC says:

    Hugh. Russell looks like a Russet potato.

  60. Ginger says:

    Merry Christmas and Fassy dreams to you!

  61. Tiana says:

    Well, since Hugh, cute & nice as he is, is a known gay man with a beard for a wife, I’ll take Russell any day of the year.

  62. Ashley says:

    Doesn’t matter what you think, looking at the IMDB profile for both of them, I see Russell has been making over $15 mill since 2001 but Hugh just recently has started to make that kind of money. So, best looks and best body sometimes does not bring the best money in.

  63. debsa says:

    Russel Crowe should never stand beside Hugh…handsdown Hugh…

  64. patricia says:

    For me, the only one of these two that I have heard almost non-stop gay rumors about is Hugh. I’m wondering what all the gay talk is about. I could care less of either one is gay, as long as I get the performance I pay for at the box office. And that is for Hugh and Russell.
