17 Tweets That Prove Russell Crowe is Either Way Smarter or Way Crazier Than You

By: Robert Kessler / May 27, 2013

Born on a faraway planet where phone tossing is a customary greeting, Russell Crowe was sent to Earth as a young child to make films for humans to enjoy. And while he has mostly succeeded at that mission, he provides far more entertainment on Twitter, where his attempts at human interaction often resemble the stream of conscious writing style employed by William Faulkner in As I Lay Dying.

Crowe often tweets about his workouts or the work he’s doing on his farm. When he has a movie coming out, he asks his followers when it comes out, rather than use, say, Google. However, just because he’s limited to 140 characters, doesn’t mean Crowe limits his tweets to one subject. They often dart around from thought to thought like a Gladiator, becoming difficult to follow. This does not make them any less fun. When Crowe isn’t spouting non-sequiturs at the speed of light, he’s waxing poetic about his favorite things: maps, namely.

These are 17 of Crowe’s best tweets.
