Russell Crowe is furry & in costume as Biblical ‘Noah’: would you hit it?

Here are some new photos of Russell Crowe in costume on the Brookville, NY set of Noah. Yes, THAT Noah. Of Ark fame. The film is being directed by Darren Aronofsky, and it also stars Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins (as Methuselah), Ray Winstone, etc. So, this is Russell in period costume, with some kind of grizzly beard. Would you hit it now that it is single? GAH. I hate to say it, but I still would. I don’t want to marry it or anything, but I would roll around with it for a few nights. I think I just like the fact that Russell looks like a man who enjoys a good meal. In my pantalones.

Anyway, as we found out this week, Russell is single now. He and Danielle Spencer separated at some point, possibly as early as May or June. Danielle may or may not be boning some dude from the Australian version of Dancing With the Stars. I should note… all of the stories about the separation have pretty much come from Danielle’s side. Russell still hasn’t said anything about anything. And The Enquirer has a theory!

Jealousy ruined Russell Crowe’s marriage to Danielle Spencer – but now she stands to reap a fortune from their split! Russell never got over Danielle stepping out with her hunky DWTS partner in late June, sources say.

“Russell’s ego couldn’t handle it,” said a source. “In his mind, it was perfectly OK for him to spend time away from home – working, hitting the bars with his mates, and carousing until all hours. But when Danielle was spotted out with another man, it was a totally different matter. Russell hit the roof!”

Now, the divorce will hit Russell hard in the wallet, with Danielle likely to walk away with up to $25 million and another $3 million apiece going to their sons.

The source says: “Danielle has long suspected that Russell has had flings while he’s working, but she turned a blind eye. But when she was out with someone else – no matter how platonic the situation was – Russell boiled over. And that was it!”

The Enquirer also says that when Russell gave Dani a “passionate kiss” publicly after she had been photographed out and about with her DWTS partner in June, “it was all for show… by that time, theirs was a marriage in name only. Russell had buried himself in his work, doing a number of films back to back, and Danielle rarely saw him.” Sure… I can sort of believe all of this. Russell seems like the kind of guy who would expect to act however he wanted, but when his perfect little wife wanted to have a drink with a friend, suddenly he was like “OMG CHEATER I HATE YOU DIVORCE.” But God knows. I take it as a good sign on Russell’s part that he hasn’t issued any statements. It gives me hope that he’s dealing with this separation with some amount of grace, and he’s not going to go out and attack the mother of his children.

    Would I hit it? Good god no!

    I honestly do think that when women say they fancy Russell Crowe, they don’t actually mean that. What they really mean is that they fancy Maximus Decimus Meridius in his sexy leather togs. But that was what? 12 years ago? Russell hasn’t been hot for a long, long time.

    • Cherry says:

      That’s just a matter of taste, you know. I, for one, would not kick him out of my bed. Look at those big strong arms! Yum.
      Also: LMAO@ ‘I just like the fact that Russell looks like a man who enjoys a good meal. In my pantalones.’

      • Amelia says:

        This will probably sound really strange, but although I wouldn’t hit it, I’d definitely take a hug off it. He looks like he could give a good hug 🙂
        And no, that’s not a euphamism.

      • Cherry says:

        I get it, Amelia. He looks comfortable.

  2. Kimbob says:

    No….I definitely would not. No…never. I never thought Russell Crowe could look like that. Ugh.

  3. dee says:

    RIP Gladiator era Russell Crowe

  4. Chellez says:

    I just came off the stunt unit of this production. His stunt double is in way better shape, which had us laughing.

    My mouth dropped when I saw the Ark; imagine Aronofky’s interpretation of the bible with “a Lord Of the Rings element”, as he said. This will be epic.

    • Amelia says:

      That’s really interesting to know, I love all these insider stories 🙂
      I’m a bit curious knowing that there are stunts in this film. Genuinely, when I first heard about this film I thought it would be them bobbing about on an ark for a few months.

    • RuddyZooKeeper says:

      OK, now I’m curious and excited. Wonder what the rating will be.

  5. little-red says:

  6. dooliloo says:

    Hit it with a phone yes!

    • Chicagogurl17 says:

      Hysterical! Thank you. I don’t dislike him but his anger is def a problem.

    • Belly says:

      Give him a couple of extra belts with that ugly stick too.
      Gah, he repulses me. The thought of hitting that – ugh, I’m nauseated.

  7. Deanna says:

    I love him.

  8. Micki says:

    ehm, no, not even when he was a gladiator

  9. mk yarwood says:

    No, too violent. If he were nicer, maybe.

  10. Sookie says:

    I’m going to be the voice of dissent and say that yes, I would hit it!

    • Melly Bee says:

      I’m with ya’, Sooki! There is a whiff, however tiny, of the Gladiator in these photos.

      • RuddyZooKeeper says:

        Unfortunately, there looks to be a whiff of something else as well. Just take a deep breath of fresh air before diving in!

  11. Lucy says:

    Not now or ever.

  12. carol says:

    chris powell needs to help this man shed 50

  13. Ellie66 says:

    Maybe after a lot of booze and sedatives.. Lol!

  14. Natalina says:

    OMG he’s sooooo sexy, yes I would hit it…again and again and again

  15. Chickie Baby says:

    Uh…YEAH, I would hit it. You have to ask? The Russ Lust never fades.

  18. hannah says:

    biblical Noah looks very non biblical noahish

    • mommak918 says:

      Haha…yess maybe I’m wrong but I thought most people wore dresses those days.

      I love the Noah’s Ark story….I’m sure this will be waaaay off the mark.

  19. Ming says:

    The Deadliest Catch has a new Phil Harris.

  20. mln76 says:

    He reminds me so much of Gerard Butler who instinctively grosses me out….and he is also violent so absolutely not.

  21. judyjudy says:

    He looks like my bff’s dad. So NO would not hit.

  22. ZigZagZoey says:

    He has always been arrogant, nasty and overrated imo….

  23. Madpoe says:

    Was Noah a wrestler?
    Is Crowe paying Noah?
    I’m confused

  24. XOGAMI says:

    YUCK! No wonder his wife left him!

  25. j.eyre says:

    I don’t think I can answer “yes” to a ‘hit it’ question when the biblical Noah is referenced within. I just think there would be repercussions of a, well, of grand proportions.

  26. Samantha says:

    When I caught a glimpse of that first picture,I just knew that I had to comment and the answer is HELL NO!!!!!!!!Give me Hugh Jackman any day.

  27. Annie says:

    Well, he’s got the “biblical” look down pat facially, the only trouble is that Noah wouldn’t have worn pants.

  28. Str8Shooter says:

    Oh HELL no! God he is so freakin’ gross! And a total ahole on top of it.

    There are some people you want to see fail cuz they’re such jerks to everyone else. He more than fits the bill.

  29. cc says:

    Zach Galifinakis????

  30. darth says:

    I wanted this guy so bad in Gladiator that I even saw the movie more than once. Can’t stand to watch it now. And I’ve since realized that it was more the costume/character that was so hot, because he’s never really had all that great of a body when you really look at him with his clothes off, and his face is average at best.
    Then you throw his horrible personality and attitude problem into the mix and suddenly he’s not sexy at all.
    Glad he’s getting old and his career is drying up. He finally has an excuse to be as grumpy as he is.

  31. Amy says:

    Gross. No. I’ve never seen the appeal of this guy.
