2As of 2014, has appeared in six films that were nominated for the Best Picture Oscar: L.A. Confidential (1997), The Insider (1999), Gladiator (2000), A Beautiful Mind (2001), Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003) and Les Misérables (2012). Of those, Gladiator (2000) and A Beautiful Mind (2001) are winners in the category.
3He, Marisa Tomei, Marcia Gay Harden and Adrien Brody are the only actors to win an Oscar without being awarded for the same performance in none of its predecessor awards (Golden Globe, Critics Choice Awards, SAG and BAFTA). Marisa Tomei and Marcia Gay Harden were not even nominated for those awards for their performances in My Cousin Vinny (1992) and Pollock (2000), and Crowe's only award for Gladiator (2000) before the Oscar was the Critics Choice award.
4He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6801 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on April 12, 2010.

7Quit smoking for the sake of his newborn children, but subsequently relapsed.
8Was the original choice for the role of Stonewall Jackson in Ron Maxwell's Civil War epic, Gods and Generals (2003). Crowe was interested at first but later dropped out. The role went to Stephen Lang instead.

13Friends with University of Michigan head football coach Lloyd Carr.
14Is a huge fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs of the NHL.

17Has starred in five movies in seven years (1997-2003) which ended up being nominated for an Oscar for Best Picture. (L.A. Confidential (1997), The Insider (1999), Gladiator (2000), A Beautiful Mind (2001) and Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003)). Gladiator (2000) and A Beautiful Mind (2001) won. A similar achievement was done by William Hurt in the 1980s, he starred in five movies nominated for Best Picture in only six years between 1983 and 1988 but none of them won.
18His earnings in 2001 were estimated at $15.4 million by "Business Review Weekly".
19Was considered for the role of Aslan in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005) and its ensuing sequels.
20Was director Oliver Stone's dream choice for the title role in Alexander (2004).
21Two opportunities of working with fellow Australian and good friend, Nicole Kidman, have fallen through. In 2005, they were set to star in Jocelyn Moorhouse's Eucalyptus, which fell through due to disputes over the screenplay. And in 2006, Crowe dropped out of Australia (2008), Baz Luhrmann's long-gestating romantic Outback epic, due to a disagreement over a cut in Crowe's salary.
22Nearly finalized a deal to reunite with director Michael Mann on Collateral (2004), but scheduling conflicts with Eucalyptus, a doomed film project, prevented him from taking the role, which later went to Tom Cruise.
23The role of James J. Braddock (Cinderella Man (2005)) is his personal favorite.

27Turned down the role of Sgt. Norm "Hoot" Hooten in Black Hawk Down (2001) due to scheduling conflicts.
28Turned down the role of Aragorn in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy since filming on The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) would coincide with Ron Howard's A Beautiful Mind (2001). However, Crowe really loved the idea of filming a movie in his home country, New Zealand, for an extended amount of time.
29Despite liking the script very much, turned down About a Boy (2002).
30Was among the guests at Nicole Kidman's and Keith Urban's wedding
31A Beautiful Mind (2001) is ranked #93 on the American Film Institute's 100 Most Inspiring Movies of All Time (2006).

34He attended Vaucluse Public School in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney for part of his Infants and Primary Education in the 1970s.
35His next album (tentatively titled "My Hand, My Heart") is produced by Alan Doyle, lead singer for the Canadian band, Great Big Sea.
36Is friends with Richard Tognetti, who gave him violin lessons for Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003).
37When his wife was pregnant with his first child Charles, he gave up drinking alcohol with her.
38His former band, 30 Odd Foot of Grunts, used to cover a song by Newfoundland band, Great Big Sea. While filming Cinderella Man (2005) in Toronto, Crowe met Alan Doyle, lead singer of Great Big Sea. The two ended up composing several songs together, working in Toronto and Australia, and Doyle produced Crowe's 2005 album "My Hand, My Heart".
39Once he was cast as Bud White in L.A. Confidential (1997), he read in the book that his character was the largest cop on the police force, off-putting for him due to his medium-sized frame (just under 6 feet). To capture a "big guy" presence, Crowe lived in a tiny flat in which he could barely fit through any of the doors. This experience, he said, made him come to the set feeling like a giant.
40Premiere magazine ranked him as #49 on a list of the Greatest Movie Stars of All Time in their Stars in Our Constellation feature (2005).
41Good friends with Nicole Kidman. She also mentioned him in her Oscar acceptance speech when she won Best Actress in a Leading Role for The Hours (2002).
42Ranked #97 on VH1's 100 Hottest Hotties
43Was accepted into the prestigious drama school, The National Institute of Dramatic Arts (NIDA), in Sydney.
44On June 7, 2006, he formed a partnership with Australian businessman Peter Holmes a Court to buy a controlling stake in his favorite sports team, the Australian NRL team South Sydney Rabbitohs.
45(January 29, 2004) Dislocated his shoulder while training for his upcoming boxing movie, Cinderella Man (2005). The injury delayed filming for two months.
46He was awarded the Australian Centenary Medal in the 2001 Queen's New Years Honours List for his services to Australian society and Australian film production.
47Jodie Foster considers him a very good friend.
48He wrote a song about Jodie Foster called "Other Ways of Speaking" with his band, 30 Odd Foot of Grunts.
49Took violin lessons in preparing for Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003) because his character, Jack Aubrey, played the violin several times during the movie.
50Son-in-law of actor Don Spencer.
51Met spouse, Danielle Spencer in 1989 when they co-starred in the film The Crossing (1990). Their co-star of the film, Robert Mammone (The Matrix Reloaded (2003), Matrica. Revoliucijos (2003)), was one of Crowe's groomsmen at their wedding.
52Ranked #30 in Premiere magazine's 2003 annual Power 100 List.
53Discovered by British actor and musical director/writer Daniel Abineri, who gave Crowe his first professional acting role in a New Zealand tour of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show". Abineri later awarded Crowe the title role in his first stage musical, "Bad Boy Johnny and the Prophets of Doom", which premiered in Melbourne in 1989.
54Following his involvement in a brawl in a London restaurant, Russell stated that he was under a lot of stress and announced that he was going back to Australia to relax and spend more time with his father and his longtime girlfriend singer, Danielle Spencer. [November 2002]
55Ranked #28 in Premiere magazine's 2002 annual Power 100 List.
56When Crowe's acceptance speech for his Best Actor award during the British Film Awards was edited, Crowe shoved the producer of the show, Malcolm Gerrie, against a wall and cursed at him, telling him: "Who on Earth had the... audacity to take out the best actor's poem? I'll make sure you never work in Hollywood." He later issued a full apology.
57His ancestry includes English, German, Irish, Maori, Norwegian, Scottish, Swedish and Welsh. Russell's paternal grandfather was from Wrexham, Wales. Russell's maternal great-grandmother was Maori, and as a result, he is registered on the Maori electoral roll in New Zealand.
58Has indicated an interest in taking out Australian citizenship due to the amount of time and energy he spends Down Under (keeping his New Zealand citizenship as well).
59Proudly displayed his grandfather's British Honours medal (MBE) while making his Oscar Winner speech in 2001.
60(August 16, 2001) He and his band, 30 Odd Foot of Grunts, performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992).
61He 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.
62Has starred in three films based on articles from Vanity Fair magazine. The Insider (1999) was based on a story by Marie Brenner named "The Man Who Knew Too Much". Proof of Life (2000) was based on the article "Adventures in the Ransom Trade" by William Prochnau. A Beautiful Mind (2001) was originally published in Vanity Fair as an excerpt of Sylvia Nasar's book about John Forbes Nash.
63(September 5, 2000) Suffered a shoulder injury, which will require surgery, while filming Jodie Foster's Flora Plum. It is uncertain if the film will have to be recast.
64Russell's rock group is named 30 Odd Foot of Grunts. They played their first American concert following Russell's success in Gladiator (2000) in Austin, Texas in August 2000. The tickets for the concert were selling for over $500 on e-bay.com.
65Dropped out of high school.
66Owns a 560-acre farm in 7.5 hours North-West from Sydney.
67After filming Gladiator (2000), he and some friends took a 4,000 mile motorcycle trip around Australia.
68Tried a music career as a rockabilly singer sporting a large pompadour hairdo, playing under the name Russ Le Roq. Titled his first single, "I Want to Be Like Marlon Brando". Later admitted that he had never even seen a Brando movie when he wrote and recorded the song. Ironically, he went on later to play Jor-El in Man of Steel (2013), the same character that Brando iconically performed in Superman (1978).
69First lead role when he was 25.
70Lost his front tooth playing rugby when he was ten. Never got it fixed until, at the insistence of the director for The Crossing (1990), who paid for it out of his own pocket.
71Cousin of former New Zealand international cricketers Jeff Crowe and Martin Crowe.

#Quote
1[Speaking to Mark Lawson about his character in Robin Hood (2010)] You've got dead ears, mate. You've seriously got dead ears if you think that's an Irish accent. Bollocks. I'm a little dumbfounded that you could possibly find any Irish in that character.
2[from his 2002 Oscar acceptance speech] When you grow up in the suburbs of anywhere, a dream like this seems kind of vaguely ludicrous and completely unattainable. But this moment is directly connected to those childhood imaginings. And for anybody who's on the downside of advantage and relying purely on courage, it's possible.
3[on Oliver Reed] He drank himself to death. He sat on a bar stool until he fell off it and carried on drinking... lying in his own piss and vomit, he continued to drink till he passed out. What did the tabloids say he drank on the day he died? Something like thirty beers, eight or ten dark rums and half a bottle of whiskey. In the end, he created such a weird energy around him that no one drinking with him cared.
4[1997, on perfecting accents] I was too kind of brave and proud to want a dialect coach because I thought that showed weakness in my armor. But then you just learn it's a more efficient way of doing it. A dialect coach is really important because it takes a certain technical responsibility off your shoulders. Otherwise, it would be very disruptive, because you've got to focus on the internal life of the character. The language is easy if you're not focusing on it, you know.
5[1997, on L.A. Confidential (1997)] You go into these movies to play an American, you know. That's part of the fun of it for me. I can be an Australian in Australian films.
6(July 2010) Do the maths - I have been smoking for 36 years, I would continuously lie to myself about how much I smoked. I was smoking 40 on an easy day, but on a day when I would be up at 4am and still up at midnight, then it was 60-plus and it just got to the point where my body was telling me I had to stop.
7[on studio demands for a sex scene in Gladiator (2000)] I'm sorry boys, but it doesn't suit the character. We can't be avenging the death of the wife and child, and stop for a bit of nookie along the way. I'm sorry, it's not gonna happen.
8[on theatre] Every now and then I get sort of romantic about it. But I've also got that cynical part of me where, when I read somebody saying, "I'm going back to the theatre. I'm going back to my roots," I'm like, "Oh, can't get a job, hey?".
9People might say I'm uncompromising but really I am just a very straight-shooting man. If you look me in the eye and shake my hand I expect you to keep your end of the f***ing bargain. I do. It's simple.
10[on spirituality] I think there's a karmic cycle, which is very, very obvious: you run around acting like a dick, and you get your ass kicked. The world just works that way.
11He was a gentle, beautiful man, a fine actor, a loyal friend. I feel deeply for his family - on the passing of friend and fellow actor, Heath Ledger.
12[on an upcoming remake of the Robin Hood story] If you go back into the mythology, you get Robin the Beheader, who would chop off your head and your hands, take your money and keep it. So we'll have a look at that.
13In wars, no one wins, everyone loses. There are no heroes, there's only dead people. Movies can really change things and... it becomes an educational process and I think that's the healthiest way of attacking anything. That's what I'm looking for.
14[on what attracts him to prospective films] I respond to the call that says, "It's 185 A.D. You're a Roman general. You're being directed by Ridley Scott." That's something my imagination can get a hold of.
15[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.
16[on turning down the role of Morpheus in The Matrix (1999)] Well, The Matrix - I just didn't get it. I couldn't get past page 42. That world was just not interesting to me.
17I just didn't want to work on that movie in the type of environment that was being created because of the needs of the budget. I do charity work, but I don't do charity work for major studios.
18I'm a virtuoso in my job in that there's not an actor I can't go into a scene with and be absolutely confident that, whatever is required of my character, I can do it.
19[on The Passion of the Christ (2004)] Well if what I've heard about it is fair dinkum that he spent $25 million making a movie that's shot in Aramaic and Latin and he's intending to release it without subtitles, I think he's got to get off the glue. What's the point of making a movie where people can't understand what's going on? I don't understand that. If you want it for reality or whatever, I think, "Wow, what an amazing idea," but also what a waste of time if nobody can get what the point is. Well, if we know the story, if we know it that well, why did he bother making it again? Mr. Gibson, get off the glue!
20Dani was three weeks early last time, she gave birth just a few days after she was chased down the street by four photographers. Nobody cares, particularly the photographers, nobody cares to focus on what that is. She was just walking down the street with her girlfriend and they rushed her - four of them all surrounded her. So she panicked and slipped and all this sort of stuff. If I'd been there that would have been a really serious situation. I tell you right now, they will be tarred and feathered if they hassle my pregnant wife again.
21I'd move to Los Angeles if Australia and New Zealand were swallowed up by a huge tidal wave, if there was a bubonic plague in England, and if the continent of Africa disappeared from some Martian attack.
22I don't do ads for suits in Spain like George Clooney or cigarettes in Japan like Harrison Ford. And on one level, people go, "Well, more fault to you, mate, because there's free money to be handed out." But to me it's kind of sacrilegious - it's a complete contradiction of the f**king social contract you have with your audience. I mean, Robert De Niro's advertising American Express. Gee whiz, it's not the first time he's disappointed me. It's been happening for a while now.
23I 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.
24I had a good laugh when Clooney tried to compare doing ads for suits, a car and a drink to what I do as a musician. An endorsement is about money. My music is from the heart.
25I believe if you take on characters for a living you can't make yourself into an icon in order to sell a pair of shoes.
26After The Insider (1999), I know the exact chemical compounds in a commercial cigarette, but I've been smoking since I was 10. I know it's terrible, but I am a great fan of irony.
27I'm at the bottom of a well. I can't communicate how dark my life is right now. I'm in a lot of trouble. I'll do my best to solve the situation in an honorable way. I'm very sorry for my actions. I will spend the rest of my life if it takes it, trying to make it up with my wife. I'm pleased that my son isn't able to compute what's going on at the moment because that would be a heartbreaking thing. One thing that I don't want to do is imply that I'm trying to make out it's somebody else's fault It's not, I know it's my fault, I've got to face up to it and deal with it. I'm not trying to be pessimistic, I'm just looking at what the situation is - it's a seven-year jail sentence.
28[on Oliver Reed] Mate, he did that to himself. I have little time for the Oliver Reeds of this business. I'm not pleased that he's gone. In fact, I never had a drink with Oliver, because I didn't want to encourage him. I'll go for long periods without a drink. When I'm on the farm by myself, it's not something I even think about. But I'm not afraid to have a beer in front of a studio executive. That doesn't make me a wild man.
29When I arrived in Sydney, I spent 22 weeks in this $50-a-week place with just a bed, a cupboard and the toilet halfway down the corridor. For the first time my parents were some distance away. I did a lot of thinking and realized I appreciated what my father had instilled in me. People think that because there is a dole there they should use it, and there are a lot of ways to misuse the system. I believe in singing for my supper. I'll never accept a grant because what I do should be able to be founded purely on free enterprise.
30[on Robert De Niro] He has disappointed me many times over the past ten years, with his performances in substandard movies.
31I'm still excited by it. I still love the process. I want to make movies that pierce people's hearts and touch them in some way, even if it's just for the night while they're in the cinema; in that moment, I want to bring actual tears to their eyes and goosebumps to their skin. That's what motivates me, and it may sound strange but if you're not focused on the audience, why are you bothering to make a movie?
32The older I get, the crotchetier I'm going to get about that integrity. I don't think, just because you have the public's attention, it's now a prerequisite for you to completely sell out your moral center. I don't think that's okay. If I ever stop being the guy that can answer your question straight and look you in the eye and give you my opinion, then I should stop making films.
33If there's anything about someone's life that's important enough to make a movie about it, I have to take responsibility to get all of it right. It's a huge responsibility.
34I'd like to play passionate women, but no one will let me.
35I always say I've given 24 insufficient performances and I'm looking forward to the time in my life when I'll do something that I think is good. There's always stuff you can do better, stuff that maybe you didn't uncover enough. But if you do something that you truly believe is perfect, then that's got to be the last movie you do.
36All that stuff, this public persona of me - let's call him "the wild man" - that is not helpful. It doesn't make me more of a box office draw. It's the quality of my work that makes people want to go to my films.
37You don't have to like an actor to do a scene with him. You don't have to like a director. But it's just better if you do. And I think, you know, you've got to begin that with respect.
38[on meeting Robert De Niro] I felt this tap on my shoulder and I turned around and, you know that De Niro fellow? Well, he didn't say a word. He didn't say "Hello", "Good evening" or anything or "Hi, I'm Robert". He just looked at me and he nodded his head and he smiled. And he walked off.
39It's not really what I'd call a movie. I was stunned that Miramax wanted to buy it. I mean it's really rude. It showed me in a really bad light. It's also shoddily made. It's cobbled together. [expressing surprise that a low-budget documentary of his band, 30 Odd Foot of Grunts, has been picked up for worldwide distribution]
40[on winning the Best Actor Oscar] If you grow up in the suburbs of anywhere, a dream like this seems kind of vaguely ludicrous and completely unattainable. But this moment is directly connected to those imaginings. And for anybody who's on the downside of advantage, and relying purely on courage, it's possible.
41One of the most painful things of the L.A. Confidential (1997) character I played was that the author, James Ellroy, kept telling me that Bud White wasn't a drinker. I said, "Come on, this is 1953. He's a blue-collar bloke, a cop. You're telling me he doesn't sit around with the boys after his shift and have a beer?". And Ellroy says, "Absolutely not." So for five months and seven days, I didn't have a drink. It's probably the most painful period of my life.
