Russell Crowe has a hilarious reaction to questions on Gladiator 2

The senior actor recently attended the Karlovy Vary Film Festival in the Czech Republic and addressed the media for a Q&A session. As per the reports by Variety, Russell Crowe, who was answering the questions of the media, got visibly annoyed when the journalists asked him about Gladiator 2. However, the actor lightened the situation with a hilarious reaction, which left the journalists in splits.

“They should be fucking paying me for the number of questions I am asked about a film I am not even in,” snapped the actor, to the much amusement of the media representatives. “It has nothing to do with me. In that world, I am dead. Six feet under. But I do admit to a certain tinge of jealousy, because it reminds me of when I was younger and what it meant for me, in my life,” he explained. 

Russell Crowe is excited about the sequel

The actor, however, admitted that he is indeed excited about Gladiator 2, and believes that the film is going to be spectacular. “I don’t know anything about the cast, I don’t know anything about the plot. I am dead! But I know that if director Ridley Scott has decided to do a second part of the story, over 20 years later, he must have had very strong reasons. I can’t think of this movie being anything other than spectacular,” stated Russell Crowe in his chat.
