>My first reaction when I saw this headline was to think, “Was Crowe drunk when he did the interview?” But, let’s suppose that Russell Crowe was sane and sober for this one. We all remember him talking about a kidnap threat back when he was up for an Oscar for Gladiator. There were little to no details released, at least that I can remember.
So, then I wonder…why are the FBI protecting him? He’s not an American. Shouldn’t that be the Australian FBI’s job? Or were they just protecting him while he was in the US for the Oscars? That I can understand.
What I don’t understand is how come the FBI takes a threat from Al-Qaida against Russell Crowe seriously, but not ones about flying planes into the World Trade Center and other buildings? Wasn’t this threat against Crowe BEFORE September 11th? I’m getting all riled up again. I need to go do some filing or something else mundane to calm down.
