Russell CroweBorn Russell Ira Crowe in Wellington, New Zealand, on April 7, 1964, at age four Crowe moved with his family to Australia, There he frequently went to work with his parents catering film shoots - and on the set is where the young Crowe was said to have eventually caught the acting bug.

Today recognized as one of the leading Hollywood actors in such blockbusters as A Beautiful Mind and Gladiator, Crowe began his professional career in such Australian-produced films as The Crossing in 1990, following up with a critically praised performance in Proof in 1991.

The following year, worldwide attention was given to what is now recognized as an early trademark, "Crowe intense" performance as a skinhead in Romper Stomper.

It was actress Sharon Stone who later championed Crowe's move to Hollywood, and who appeared opposite the rising star in The Quick and The Dead in 1995, which eventually lead to his breakthrough performance in L.A. Confidential two years later and, finally, an Oscar nominated performance for The Insider in 1999.

boxer James Braddock in Cinderella Man, and as a schizophrenic mathematician in A Beautiful Mind.

In 2000, Crowe achieved superstar status with a riveting performance in the summer blockbuster, Gladiator - almost single-handedly reviving the once-dead 50's Roman epic genre. He also gained millions of new fans around the world and, in the process, triumphantly won the Oscar for Best Actor in 2001 for his performance.

His multi-layered portrayal of a schizophrenic mathematician John Nash in A Beautiful Mind also netted Crowe a Golden Globe award and an Oscar nomination for Best Actor the following year.

In 2004, Crowe appeared in the epic sea adventure, Master and Commander and later was nominated again for Best Actor at the 2006 Oscar Awards for his performance in Cinderella Man.

In September 2007, Crowe appeared with actor Christian Bale in the western drama, 3:10 to Yuma and was a main contender at the 2008 Academy Awards for his performance in American Gangster, co-starring Denzel Washington. The actor's other notable film projects include the lead role in Robin Hood (2010), and as Inspector Javert in the musical Les Miserables in 2012.

In his most recent movie project, Crowe plays the title role in the Biblical epic, Noah, released in 2014.
