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”.
