Aside from getting lost while kayaking, Russell Crowe is also offending the good folks on the set of his new movie Noah. Unfortunately for his co-workers, Russell is basically stinking up the place for his form of method acting. Gross, right?
He is trying to properly get into his character, so hes’s been refusing to wash his funky self during filming. He’s playing the titular role of Noah in the movie and wants to fully grasp his biblical character. Reportedly, his lack of showering and deodorant use isn’t going over too well with the other people on the set.
A source said, “He’s been experimenting with skipping showers, which something he did on Gladiator as well, to get an appropriately gritty look. He has to look like a very old, very weathered man for this movie but you don’t want to be inhaling when he walks past. He reeks! All of this is combining to make a potpourri of foulness, and everyone is counting down the days until the project is done!”
Ewww. So gross. He does realize that the viewers at home can’t smell him, right? You’re supposed to shower — that’s part of why they call it acting.
