Russell Crowe fussy about roles

Russell Crowe reckons he's fussy about choosing film roles

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!"

You're tired of giving away your precious talent for a pittance. Stand in your own defence. If you don't, nobody else will.More
