THE TRUTH REVEALED
THE pairings and names might not be immediately obvious, but that’s what makes new documentary series
The Truth About Us all the more appealing.
The series features some bigname Australian celebrities being interviewed alongside a close family member, friend or collaborator who may not have their name up in lights, but has been an important part of their lives.
And that’s what makes these pairings all the more precious.
The 10-part series kicks off tomorrow night with one of the biggest names in showbiz – Russell Crowe – alongside his on-set costumer and dresser, 72-year-old Mickey Castellano.
Crowe and the New Yorker have been mates and worked together for almost two decades, since meeting in 1995.
For more than a decade, Castellano travelled the world with Crowe for every film the Aussie made.
The show is all the more valuable because it’s Castellano’s first-ever interview. Over the next 10 weeks, The Truth
About Us and Angela Pulvirenti will shine a light on other celebs and their treasured relationships – Jimmy Barnes and Michael Gudinski; Maggie Beer and Stephanie Alexander; Claudia Karvan and Reverend Graham Long; Kat Stewart and writer/ director/actor Ailsa Piper; Tim Farriss and Chris Murphy; and Guy Pearce and musician Tim Neal.
