Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A galvanizing presence who earned Hollywood's highest acting accolades, actor Russell Crowe ultimately built a reputation as an A-list leading man. With an intense breakout performance as a racist skinhead in the Australian-made "Romper Stomper" (1992), Crowe established himself as an actor on the rise. Crossing the Pacific, he exploded off the screen as a violent 1950s police detective in "L.A. Confidential" (1997), announcing loudly to American audiences that he had arrived. Two years later, Crowe earned his first Academy Award nomination with a sterling performance as a tobacco executive trapped between telling the truth and protecting his family in "The Insider" (1999). But it was his turn as a Roman general in "Gladiator" (2000) that brought home Oscar glory. He was exceptional as schizophrenic math genius John Nash in "A Beautiful Mind" (2001), and followed up with acclaimed roles in "Cinderella Man" (2005) and "3:10 to Yuma" (2007). He also turned in fine performances in "American Gangster" (2007), "State of Play" (2009) and "Robin Hood" (2010). Crowe was an actor of extraordinary talent and range capable of delivering one acclaimed performance after another.
