Crowe Celebrates Hollywood Star With All Night Drinking Session
Russell Crowe celebrated the unveiling of his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last month (Apr10) by enjoying an all-night drinking session with his wife.
The Oscar winner was awarded the 2,404th star in Hollywood on 12 April (10) and his plaque was placed on the sidewalk in front of the Kodak Theatre, where the Academy Awards are held.
But instead of marking the honour with a civilised lunch, Crowe asked organisers to host a bash for his family - and the Gladiator star was still partying with wife Danielle when the sun came up the next morning.
Speaking to British talk show host Jonathan Ross, Crowe says, "We made it into a great day. Luckily for me my kids are old enough now so they got to enjoy the experience... So we had a nice day with them. They usually have a luncheon. We said, 'Well, we'd rather have a p**s-up (drinking session) at night time than a luncheon during the day.' So the studio organised that.
"My wife and I - and it's a long time since we've done this - we were still sitting outside with a vodka in hand at seven o'clock in the morning... That's why I married the girl. So it was fun."
