Russell Crowe: class act


Actor Russell Crowe was among dozens of callers around the world offering moral support to a Jewish school that was firebombed this month.

The star of such hit films as Gladiator and A Beautiful Mind phoned the principal and general director of United Talmud Torahs' elementary school in St. Laurent, UTT spokesperson Shelley Paris confirmed.

"He was very upset at what had happened," Paris said.

Crowe also pledged money to help rebuild the school's library, which was destroyed in the fire, The Gazette has learned.

Hooray for Lucky Jack! (A "Master and Commander" reference).

I met someone who knew Crowe on the set of "For the Moment", made in Manitoba before he became famous. He spent his time away from the camera trying to woo his married female co-star, which ruined the on-camera romance! Fortunately, he came up in the world.

Looks like the guy has class.
