Russell Crowe mulls retirement

Russell Crowe, the famous Hollywood actor, is considering retiring from acting and public life when he turns 60 in April 2024. 

The Hollywood star, 59, revealed at the 57th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic, that he’s considering retirement, per the Daily Mail, citing a Variety report.

Crowe, the outlet writes, made note of growing old in the business and contemplated the next step in his career.

He has been in the acting business for the past four decades and has a long list of successful movies under his belt. However, he has revealed that he is pondering whether it’s time to call it quits on the industry that made him famous. Crowe has not yet decided if he will retire or continue working, but he has mentioned that he will take Ridley Scott as his role model, who is still discovering new things in his work. Alternatively, he may just stop and fade into obscurity.

Crowe has shared that he is in a period of his life where he is questioning who he is when he looks in the mirror, and he has thought a couple of times that maybe his best option is just to get on a plane and get out of here.

The Gladiator star won the Crystal Globe during the opening ceremony of the festival. 

The Beautiful Mind star owns a 400-hectare farm in Nana Glen, and divides his time between this rural estate and his home in Sydney.

The Oscar winner shot to fame playing Maximus in the 2000 epic Gladiator, directed by Ridley Scott.

He’s also known for other films like Ron Howard’s A Beautiful Mind (2001) and Man of Steel.
