Major strife on the set of Nottingham! I added the exclamation mark to make this all seem very exciting. It was a waste, though, because I know absolutely nobody cares about the shiz going down on some bunk ass movie set. All you really need to know is that Russell Crowe is a big phat idiot (literally) who has a big phat ego, and that he is a hater of Hobby Horsies.
Yeah! So Russell started demanding shiz and acting like a blubbery monster: He didn’t like the script (so he ordered a re-write that was basically all about him), and he didn’t like Sienners around because she made his arse look phat or something. Alas, got booted (she was to have been Maid Marian). Says a source: “It is a mess. Russell never lost the weight. . . and so the love scenes between him and Sienna would have been laughable. He’s so old and fat and she’s so young and gorgeous. It’s just . . . gross.”
Some sap from the studio wouldn’t give credence to the ‘Russell antics’, but they did have the guts to acknowledge the fact that Sienners was “released”. Yes, released back into the wild where she can gallop in the meadows with all the other unemployed hobby horsies.
