His fans don’t think he’s fat, but it’s his weight issues that are causing all kinds of drama on the set of his new movie, Nottingham.
Russell’s Robin Hood revival, has already faced some major setbacks, with him requesting a new director, and demanding script re-writes, and now all the nonsense has forced Sienna Miller out from playing Maid Marion.
Shooting was put on hold from February to April and Miller decided to leave the movie.
Apparently it had to do with the weight gain Crowe aquired for his role in ‘Body of Evidence’ and how he never dropped the pounds in time to play both the Sherif of Nottingham and Robin Hood.
A Nottingham insider claims, “It is a mess. Russell never lost the weight he put on for ‘Body of
Evidence’ – and so the love scenes between him and Sienna would have
been laughable. He’s so old and fat and she’s so young and gorgeous.
It’s just . . . gross.”
Buzz in Hollywood is that they are now looking for an actress that’s a little older and heavier to match up with Russell a little better.
