Giuliana Rancic has conducted many interesting interviews with Hollywood A-listers, thanks to her job as an E! News reporter. However, there is one person whom she recalls as being really mean to her.
“There have been a lot of awkward ones. Oh, I know… duh! Russell Crowe!” Rancic recalled. “[He] was so mean to me. Oh hey, Russell, what’s up?”
“I had been at E! for a year, and I literally was like, ‘I’m gonna go easy because he’s pretty tough. And so I said, ‘Are you excited to be here tonight? Your big movie premiere?’ And he goes, ‘I’m contractually obligated to be here. What’s your next question?'”
However, Rancic decided to continue the interview and see if she could extract anything meaningful from Crowe.
“Um, isn’t it wonderful seeing all the fans?” Rancic asked. But Crowe clearly was not in a good mood that evening because the Giuliana & Bill star recalled the terrifying moment, saying to Cohen, “And he goes, ‘That’s your second question?’ And he goes, ‘1, 2, you’re through!’ And walked away.”
That sort of behavior won’t win you any friends, Crowe.
