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.



Great mates: Mickey Castel­lano and Rus­sell Crowe.
