Russell Crowe is Considering Retiring from Acting after 40 Years


After a remarkable four decades in the acting industry, Hollywood star Russell Crowe is contemplating the idea of retiring.

The 59-year-old actor shared his thoughts during the 57th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic, as reported by Variety.

Reflecting on his age and considering the next phase of his career, Crowe openly discussed his contemplation.

He described the moment when you look in the mirror and ask, “Who the f**k is that?” Speaking to journalists at the festival, he shared, “I am in that period now.”

The renowned actor then pondered his options, drawing attention to 85-year-old director Ridley Scott, who continues to discover new aspects of his work as he grows older.

“I will take Ridley Scott as my role model: he is still discovering new things in his work. Or I will just stop and you will never hear from me again,” Crowe admitted. “I haven’t decided what it’s going to be. These are two very valid choices.”

Aside from contemplating retirement, Crowe may also be considering a step back from Hollywood as he focuses on his relationship with Britney Theriot.

The couple attended the Karlovy Vary Film Festival together, with the 31-year-old by Crowe’s side as he received a significant honor during the opening ceremony.

Crowe was presented with the Crystal Globe, a major recognition of his talent and contributions to the industry.

In recent months, he and Britney have been inseparable, embarking on travels around the world. They were spotted together in May during Crowe’s Indoor Garden Party Tour in Sydney, where Britney even served as a backup singer during one of his performances at The Bridge Hotel.

Russell and Britney frequently travel between Sydney and Coffs Harbour, where Crowe is currently building a $400 million film studio known as ‘Aussiewood.’

In addition to his urban home in Sydney, the actor owns a 400-hectare farm in Nana Glen, where he spends his time between the rural estate and the city.

Their romance, which had long been rumored, was officially confirmed when they were spotted sharing a kiss on the tennis court in November 2020. It is believed that Crowe and Britney first met on the set of his 2013 film Broken City.

Throughout his illustrious career, the Oscar-winning actor rose to fame for his iconic portrayal of Maximus in the epic 2000 film Gladiator, directed by Ridley Scott. He is also recognized for his roles in other notable films such as Ron Howard’s A Beautiful Mind (2001) and Man of Steel.

As Russell Crowe contemplates his future, fans and industry insiders eagerly await his decision, hoping that his extraordinary talent will continue to grace the screen or, if he chooses to retire, appreciating the legacy he leaves behind.
