Personal Quote:

I do my bit to improve the world but I think it's very important to get things done on the quiet. I'm sick to death of famous people standing up and using their celebrity to promote a cause. If I see a particular need, I do try to help. But there's a lot that can be achieved by putting a cheque in the right place and shutting up about it. See more »

Trivia:

He turned down the role of Logan/Wolverine in X-Men (2000) because he didn't want to play another similar role to the Maximus from Gladiator (2000), which he just completed. Crowe felt the characters were too similar by having the same animal totem - the wolf, and thought the movie was a cartoon, which it isn't his cup of tea. See more »
