Rebel Wilson’s Fun Russell Crowe Story

When I was around 12 or 13 years old, I was in an airport flying from somewhere to somewhere else (I’m not realizing that I should probably save this story for some sort of published memoir, as it is clearly too good to give away for free here, but I’ve already started typing and lord knows I have no delete key so I guess everyone will just GET THE GOODS!) and before I entered the plane, when I was sitting in the waiting area, I looked across from me and who did I see? THE DRUMMER FROM EVE 6. Whaaaaat! He signed my Eve 6 CD (which I had on me) and told me about an Eve 6 video that was coming out soon. He was very nice. Rebel Wilson’s story about meeting Russell Crowe is kind of similar, but also kind of different! From Page Six:

During a chat on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” last night, the brassy comedienne explained how she won the Nicole Kidman Scholarship while studying acting at the Australian Theater for Young People.

“Nicole paid for everything!” Wilson, 27, exclaimed. “An apartment, going to see Broadway shows…she doesn’t know about that.”

When Leno asked if she ever thanked Kidman, Wilson replied, “One time in Sydney I saw her having dinner with Russell Crowe and I go, “Ok. Now’s my chance. I’m going to say thank you.”

“But before I could say anything Russell Crowe just turns to me and says, ‘F–k off!’ just put my head down and walked away.”

Very cooooooool! Sometimes you think, ah, if you could just meet that certain celebrity you two would hit it off and be great friends/lovers. And sometimes you’re right! Russell Crowe + Rebel Wilson 4ever. Very very good story!
