Russell Crowe lashes out at late Gladiator co-star Oliver ReedMay 8th, 2010 - 4:52 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 08 (ANI): ‘Gladiator’ star Russell Crowe has confessed that he never got along with his co-star Oliver Reed, insisting he never had a ‘pleasant conversation’ with the actor who “drank himself to death”.
Reed was known for heavy boozing, that prompted a serious heart attack halfway when he was shooting the Ridley Scott epic in Malta in 1999.
And Crowe admitted that he has only handful of happy memories of his time with Reed, bringing one occasion back to mind when the drunk actor took to fighting with strangers in the street.
“I never got on with Ollie. He has visited me in dreams and asked me to talk kindly of him. So I should… but we never had a pleasant conversation,” the Daily Express quoted him as telling GQ magazine.
“I have seen him walk down the street in Malta drunk as a lord and just hit anybody he got near to - even a man walking with his children. I just found that to be - not impressive.” (ANI)
