Russell fans are stepping up to defend him at both of "Jerry's" blogs. Have a look and leave a comment.
When interviewed, one notices that Russell Crowe's demeanor is relatively flat; his facial expressions usually look rather dull-almost depressed. Very little smiling behavior; his facial muscles are not used. Many of his statements sound arrogant and sometimes hostile. His language is also flat-not very expressive. His voice is monotone; no inflection or emphasis on his words like newscasters do to enliven the informational copy they have to read. On the whole, if this is the way he behaves socially and at work, you would not expect him to have many friends. In fact, he has a reputation for being "difficult, aggressive, and hostile" at work and elsewhere.If you have seen him in movies like 3:10 to Yuma, and Gladiator, you remember how persuasively diverse his affect was-how convincing his personalities appeared. You might say, "Well of course he changes himself and comes across as any type of personality he chooses; he is getting paid to do so." Your argument is that the consequences for him to behave-to act, are extremely positive and that is why he takes the trouble to do so.
