Russell Crowe says he's "finickity" when it comes to picking movie roles.

At the Hollywood premiere for his new thriller The Next Three Days, the New Zealand-born star admitted he found it harder to find parts he liked in Hollywood at the moments.

"It's sort of going through a strange little period at the moment, but that's alright you know," the actor insisted, referring to the number of superhero movies being made.

"It's not that I don't get lots to read, it's just that I'm a very finickity person!" he laughed.

In the new thriller, directed and written by Oscar-winner Paul Haggis, Russell plays a husband who takes extreme actions to try to free his wife from prison after she's accused of a murder.

"I don't actually go into it with a pre-determined list of things I want," Russell revealed at the special low-key screening.

"I actually wait for that white light to come down from the sky and I wait to be moved," he joked.

Making a gangster-style hand gesture, Russell teased: "I'm a really old fashioned bloke, I'm old school and proud of it!"

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

Your forceful personality makes people sit up and take notice of you. This is a great time to show off your expert knowledge. Demonstrating a command for facts and figures will result in a teaching or media position. Make sure you don't impose this air of authority at home. Your family won't appreciate being ordered around. You may be a superstar in intellectual circles, but you're just another relative on the domestic front. Don't bristle at your loved ones' irreverence. It's good for your ego.More
