LONDON - Hollywood actor Russell Crowe has revealed he hates celebrity culture and considers it an “unfortunate byproduct” of his acting career.
The star who is married to singer-and-actress Danielle Spencer has no interest in being famous and thinks society’s obsession with people in the public eye is detrimental to the movie-making industry.
“Some people believe celebrity is a power that should be used. Ultimately, your dollars are more powerful. I’m famous for making movies. Celebrity just happens to be an unfortunate byproduct of what I do. Whatever used to be called mystery, you’re not allowed to have that anymore,” contactmusic.com quoted him as saying.
“So there’s a whole bunch of blank space that’s filled in with stuff that fills up pages of newspapers. Which is not real, and you know it’s not real, and I know it’s not real. And readers don’t really care because that’s what they’re interested in.”
