CROWE’S PRIME KK PRAISE
HOLLYWOOD megastar Russell Crowe has backed the political resurgence of failed NSW Labor premier Kristina Keneally after her announcement that she would contest the federal seat of Bennelong.
The Sydney-based actor took to Twitter to declare Ms Keneally was an “asset” who could eventually become a prime minister.
“You are an asset to this city and the country,” he said.
“Tireless, selfless, old school politician, progressive thinker it’s a good combo ... KK 4 PM down the track?”
Crowe, who sent the Tweet directly to Ms Keneally yesterday, has been critical of the Turnbull government’s handling of the Manus Island crisis, labelling it a “nation’s shame”.
