'Shall we do a downward dog later?'

I’ve got some yoga moves you can do in heels

Russell Crowe - to Amanda

Talking about his latest film and directorial debut The Water Diviner, Russell Crowe revealed that he still has a passion for acting and how he prepares for a role.

He said, “I started work in front of a camera when I was six years old, I’ve been making feature films and lead roles for twenty five years, and I understand the medium and have a profound and deep love for what I do for a living. And I know that sometimes comes across to people as taking myself too seriously, but it’s not, I just love my job. I try to create an energy around me on set where everybody knows they are allowed to be at their very best - the same way you do with your kids!”

The Water Diviner follows a father searching for the bones of his sons after WWI, only to discover that one of them has survived. As the POW camps disband and the Greeks invade Turkey, it's a race against time to find his last remaining son.

Before long talk turned to yoga, and downward dogs in particular, as Russell told Amanda he had some yoga moves she could do in heels. And when Phillip mentioned he felt a little left out, Russell replied: "You can wear heels too Phillip!”

Explaining his passion for rugby and turning down this year's Oscars for a game, Russell said, “I was supposed to present with Ryan Gosling… and I just had to say I’m sorry, I’ve got a previous engagement, I’m going to be in St Helen’s watching the match!”
