Russell Crowe is one of Hollywood’s greatest stars. However, while he is a mainstay in the entertainment industry all across the country and the world, it turns out that the actor hasn’t set foot on US soil in over four years. Apparently, notes The Daily Mail, Crowe hasn’t been back to the country for filming – or any other reason – since 2019.

According to reports, the Gladiator star currently spreads out his time between his farm in Nana Glen, Australia, and his apartment in the Australian city of Sydney. Crowe says that his American friends are often asking about a post-pandemic return to the US, however.

“My American friends are like ”what’s going on?”‘ Russell Crowe quips in a recent interview. Crowe adds that up until the pandemic he was making regular trips to the US. Between the years of 1992 and 2019 Crowe recalls, there was never a year where he did not make a trip to the country “at least twice”.

However, after Crowe’s last US film – the thriller Unhinged – the pandemic hit, changing Crowe’s regular routine. And, since then, the actor says, his schedule has not allowed him time to make another trip to the country.

“I haven’t been back since for a press tour,” Russell Crowe explains of his last visit to the States.

“I’ve been able to wrangle a way to do most of the press sitting here on the phone on the farm,” the star adds.
