Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

OUT­SPO­KEN ac­tor Rus­sell Crowe has told fe­male star­lets to stop MOAN­ING about not get­ting enough roles.

The Noah and Les Mis­er­ables star, 50, reck­ons ac­tresses should ac­cept they’re get­ting old and take jobs ac­cord­ingly.

“Meryl Streep will give you 10,000 ex­am­ples and ar­gu­ments as to why that’s bull­shit – so will He­len Mir­ren.

“If you are will­ing to live in your own skin, you can work as an ac­tor. If you are try­ing to pre­tend that you’re still the young buck when you’re my age, it just doesn’t work.”

“I heard of an ac­tress, part of her ne­go­ti­a­tion was get­ting the num­ber of kids she was sup­posed to have less­ened. Can you be­lieve this? She lived in a cold cli­mate and there was noth­ing to do but for­ni­cate. Quit ar­gu­ing, just play the role!”
