Personal Quote:

[on his selectivity of his next film] With the Lord of the Rings, if I did that I couldn't have done A Beautiful Mind, and I just had to do A Beautiful Mind. You can't do it all, and the people who try to usually end up not being able to focus at a certain level after a while. I mean, if I'm going to drink a bottle of wine, I drink a really good bottle of wine. See more »

Trivia:

He turned down the role of Logan/Wolverine in X-Men (2000) because he did not 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 is not his cup of tea. See more »
