In the early 2000s, Russell Crowe was indisputably one of the biggest names in Hollywood. He got his start on TV back home in his native Australia, first appearing as Kenny Larkin in a few episodes of the popular soap opera Neighbours. In 1990, he landed his first film roles in Prisoners of the Sun and The Crossing. But it wasn’t until starring as Maximus Decimus Meridius in the film Gladiator that he really made his mark stateside. After his performance in Gladiator earned him an Academy Award for Best Actor, he went on to appear in other critically acclaimed films like A Beautiful Mind and Cinderella Man.

But recently, it seems like Crowe has dropped off the map, and he’s simply not acting as much these days. Here’s why you haven’t seen him on the big screen, and why he probably won’t get back to his former status as one of Hollywood’s most popular actors.

You win some, you lose some — and some of the winners are losers! Here are ten Best Pictures that still leave me gobsmacked wondering why they got gold.

A Beautiful Mind: The Academy, when faced with more challenging fare, often goes deep middle-brow. Ron Howard’s air-brushed 2001 biopic starring Russell Crowe as Nobel Prize winning schizophrenic mathematician John Nash sidesteps the not-so-pretty spousal abuse. Nash reportedly assaulted his wife (prettily played by Jennifer Connelly) at a faculty picnic where he held her neck down under the sole of his shoe. Antisemitism was another ugly attribute – not to mention the illegitimate child and the public indecency.

6. Russell Crowe
Russell Crowe might have been involved in the movie that launched the Worlds of DC with Man of Steel, but his Jor-El didn’t even get a flashback in Batman v Superman – and that’s probably as close as he’s got to a sequel.

It’s not for lack of trying, though, as Crowe has appeared in the likes of Robin Hood and The Mummy, both of which were meant to lead to sequels before various factors got in the way. We’re holding out hope that Shane Black sorts out a Nice Guys sequel – or maybe Maximus will end up popping up in Gladiator 2?

But it seems his visit to ITV has given the Gladiator actor an idea for a new career path.

Crowe has been discussing becoming a judge with Got Talent mogul Simon Cowell after they enjoyed dinner together.

“Boy Erased” (Sept. 28)
In his 2015 suspense film “The Gift,” the actor Joel Edgerton proved to be a filmmaker of shrewd and stunning talent. For his second feature as a director, he turns to a subject that begs to be treated with dramatic honesty: the moral travesty that is “conversion therapy.” Based on Garrard Conley’s 2016 memoir, the film stars Lucas Hedges, the great young actor from “Manchester by the Sea” and “Lady Bird,” as the gay son of a Baptist pastor (Russell Crowe) in small-town Arkansas. Nicole Kidman plays his mother, and Edgerton is the conversion therapist against whom Conley gradually goes to war. —Owen Gleiberman

Gladiator star Russell Crowe prepared for his concert in Leeds tonight by visiting Yorkshire Tea.

The star dropped by for a tea break with his band, the Indoor Garden Party, on their way to perform at the historic City Varieties Music Hall in Leeds.

Oscar-winning actor Russell is well known for his appreciation of Yorkshire; the sport, the scenery and the tea; which meant our fair county was straight on the list when he planned his UK & Ireland tour with Indoor Garden Party to celebrate the release of new album, The Musical, which has topped the album charts on iTunes and Amazon this week.
