RUSSELL'S CREEPY KISS
Awkward! The star’s red carpet Romeo act makes his leading lady squirm
Russell Crowe and Annabelle Wallis might have formed a close bond on the set of their movie The Mummy, but there’s no denying the actor got a little too close for comfort to his co-star at their film’s Sydney premiere last week.
Peaky Blinders star Annabelle, 32 – who has been dating 40-year-old Coldplay frontman Chris Martin since October 2015 – looked shocked when the Wellington-born actor, 53, crept up behind her on the red carpet.
“Russell suddenly appeared behind her and starting kissing the back of her neck,” a witness tells Woman’s
Day. “She appeared startled, and then moved away from him and into the theatre.”
The moment was made even more awkward by the fact the Gladiator star’s former wife Danielle Spencer, 48, was also there. Russell later confessed he was still attracted to Danielle, saying she was “hot as a pistol”.
Er,Er you can kiss this one goodbye, Russ – Annabelle’s beau Chris (inset, below) will be less than impressed!
