Everyone is getting in touch with their inner Duttons from Yellowstone, including Oscar-winning actor Russell Crowe.
Russell Crowe is known for starring in thought-provoking movies. In many of his films, he plays a character who battles between what the world says is the law and what he knows deep within himself is right. Movies including A Beautiful Mind, The Gladiator, and Cinderella Man, have all achieved both critical and commercial success.
And now, he’s unleashing his inner Outsider with a recent social media post. He shared photos of himself riding horses on his Twitter account. Along with the photos, he wrote, “A lifetime of loving horses. That’s all.”
Russell Crowe Has ‘Fallen in Love’ With Every Horse He’s Worked With on Set
Russell Crowe is actually quite the cowboy himself. In addition to starring in films like “3:10 to Yuma,” Crowe also spoke out about the bonds that humans form with horses. He responded to a story about Liam Neeson claiming that a horse recognized him.
In 2018, actor Neeson claimed that a horse from his movie The Ballad of Buster Scruggs recognized him from another movie they worked on together. During an interview, Neeson shared how he knew the horse recognized him.
“You won’t believe it. I’m saying this horse knew me. He actually remembered me from another Western we made a while back,” said Neeson. “I love animals. When we worked together before I took special care of him. I fed him treats. Gave him apples.”
Neeson said that when the horse saw him again on the set of the new movie he was filming, the horse “whinnied when he saw me. And pawed the ground.”
Nonbelievers made fun of Neeson’s claim. But Russell Crowe quickly stepped in to defend his horse-loving friend.
“This is absolutely true,” wrote Crowe in a Tweet. “There’s a horse George who I gave the speech in the forest in Gladiator on. Years later he was on the set of Robin Hood and we would have a chat every day. Same with the white horse Rusty in Robin Hood we chatted again on Les Mis. Lifelong friends.”
But Russell didn’t stop there. As fans started replying to his tweet, he continued to reply to their comments. To one fan, Crowe said that he’s “fallen in love with most of the horses,” he’s worked with.
Russell Crowe wrote, “You know Rose, I’ve fallen in love with most of the horses I’ve ever worked with. It takes a certain temperament to be a great movie horse, but believe me they know when it’s showtime and that they are in show biz. The best Horse Masters value their contribution beyond money.”
In conclusion, Russell Crowe loves horses. And if anyone is brave enough to challenge the Gladiator, good luck.
