Crowe to Journalist "Go Ride a Bike"

Crowe to Journalist "Go Ride a Bike"

Maybe it's because of his starring role as a fighter in Gladiator, but Russell Crowe doesn't take criticism lying down. In fact, when faced with an undesirable assessment of his fitness regime by Australian gossip columnist Annette Sharp, Crowe laid down a challenge — a 20-kilometer bike ride. Sharp didn't think Crowe should begin a bike ride with smoking and didn't approve of his mid-workout snack — three crispy tacos. Crowe didn't like her words; his Sydney rep called and left her this challenge: "Get on your bike. Russell wants you to go riding with him. Are you ready to die?" While Sharp, a mother of three, is no smoker, she's not a cyclist either.

The ride with Russell is documented in video, and it is actually quite charming. To see if she survived continue reading.

I love biking and think it would be a hoot to tour South Syndey with Russell. I'd pass on the smokes though, and probably only eat one taco. What about you?

That's exactly what I mean, lilxmissxmolly - but people are less likely to (publicly) criticize someone who eats ice cream post-workout than someone who smokes.

I just love the dig he has at Baz, though you'd think he'd be happy he didn't star in "Australia".

If someone eats healthy meals, and then a half gallon of ice cream after every meal, but they're healthy "besides the ice cream", they're still unhealthy. cigarettes are unhealthy and deadly. (obviously, i'm not a fan of smoking)

This is so fun. I am happy they could work their differences.

This was pretty fun to watch...and they both were good sports about the whole thing! As a former smoker, it's sometimes frustrating that people assume all smokers are more unhealthy than all nonsmokers. I'm not saying that smoking is healthy (obviously - I did quit for a reason) but some smokers can lead an otherwise healthy lifestyle.
