25 Actors Who Are Crazy In Real Life

Russell Crowe

The actor famous for playing bruisers like Maximus (Gladiator) and Officer Bud White (L.A. Confidential) unsurprisingly has an off-the-charts temper off set as well. He’s been linked to a number of brawls and otherwise violent altercations, but none more infamous than the 2005 incident that saw him chuck a telephone at a hotel concierge who refused to help him place a phone call.

And speaking of phone calls, a DreamWorks biography titled The Men Who Would Be King reveals how Russ decided to deal with a producer he felt was short-changing his assistants on Gladiator. He dialed dude in the dead of night, and opened the conversation with: “You motherfucker. I’ll kill you with my bare hands.” Needless to say, said producer hung up within seconds and asked to be removed from the film.
