You can do many things in life, but never EVER suggest that Russell Crowe’s accent for Robin Hood has a smack of Irish to it. That’s what one unfortunate reporter for the BEEB did, and it unnerved the actor so much that after two minutes of stewing, he simply stormed out of the interview, still muttering about the Irish tones of his accent. Personally, if anyone can pull rank about such things, it’s a British reporter for the BBC, but that’s okay, Russell. We like it when you throw tantrums. It’s far more entertaining than anything you’ve put out there recently. And besides, who cares about bad press? It’s not like anyone’s gonna go see Robin Hood anyway.
Listen to the interview above.
