Russell Crowe Tweets the Pope, Asks Him to Watch Noah

@RussellCrowe tweeted Pope Francis numerous times yesterday, begging him to watch his new film "Noah." Begging.

Inshallah, huh?

I love the hubris. I love that Russell Crowe believes himself capable of causing havoc in Pope Francis' world. Hmmm. Last I checked (which was actually just now) @Pontifex has 3.71 millions followers on Twitter while @RussellCrowe has 1.37 million followers. So I'm sure the pope won't mind the slight spike of interactions on his twitter feed.

And as if Pope Francis is sitting there hitting refresh on Twitter.

Pope's likely comment to news of this: "Russell Who?"

Sorry Russell, the pope can't hear you. He stabbed out his eardrums when he heard you sing in Les Miz. Sorry Russell, the pope will hit "The LEGO movie" and maybe "Ride Along" before he watches your little boat movie.

Maybe when Russell stops tweeting out his defense of abortion while calling circumcision "barbarism," I'll for one moment take seriously anything he has to say. To call taking a bit of skin "barbaric" but snipping the spinal cord of a baby in the womb a "choice" just seems a little dumb to me.

I do love the irony of all this. For years, the left has been ridiculing the Catholic Church as irrelevant. But now, when the movie "Noah" seems to be on the brink of being a total bomb who do they call? Yeah.

  1. "who do they call?"

    Holy "Ghost-Busters!" ;-)

  2. Can't wait to find time to get to The Lego Movie. But doubt if I will tweet @Pontifex about it. I didn't even bother to tweet him re: the Downton season 4 finale and "wasn't the actor who played the Prince of Wales perfectly smarmy."

  3. Ok, Matt, you ruined my day. I used to like Russell Crowe, but, yuck! No circumcision, but murder is ok? And Noah was worried about global warming. That's why I wasn't going to go to the movie in the first place. Terminal stupid.

  4. maybe when speaking to a Catholic gentlemen such as the Pope, one could use Catholic/Christian expressions. Not words from false prophets and their legions of sheep being led astray and into Satans awaiting mouth.

  5. What a sophomore! He's, like, you know, all thinky-like, and, y'know, totally, special, like, so he is SOMEBODY.

    Sorry, Russell, you're not John Wayne or Cary Grant. Heck, you're not even PeeWee Herman now.

  6. I hope the Pope has extra security owing to what has happened in the past when one mixes an angry Crowe and a phone - just ask the concierge in a new yawk hotel

  7. Didn't he throw a phone at someone in an hotel in NYC or was that Naomi Campbell or was it both of them. It was both of them but she has been accused ten times of assault and he only thrice...but never with each other.

  8. I stopped liking Russel Crowe when he flung a telephone at a busboy in an English hotel. assault and battery.

  9. Who let an actor tweet without a script in front of him?

  10. Hmmm, Hollywood vs. The Vatican in the media. Why do we have to fall into the cult of personalities in our generation? UGH.

    I shall probably see the movie, but it does not strike me as one which would be a priority for this pope.
