Hollywood star Russel Crowe likes to travel in Europe. Legendary one of the posts by the "Gladiator" actor, who shows him with his family in front of the Colosseum in Rome: "I took the kids to look at my old office."
The 58-year-old has not yet made any films set in Germany, but he still spent a few days on vacation in the Federal Republic – including trips to Cologne and Munich. And the New Zealander drew a very positive balance of his visit: On Twitter, he listed five things he loves about Germany before saying goodbye. The actor was fascinated by the autobahns, he was also pleased to see many smiling faces and praised the English of the Germans. He also liked the landscapes between the cities, the architecture and the pubs.
Not only tourists can be found there, but also many locals, said Crowe, who also visited Rome, Paris and Bruges on his European tour this year. He even tried some German sentences on Twitter – and publicly searched for a fan to whom he had promised a photo.
In the famous Munich Hofbräuhaus he had taken pictures with a brass band and promised the musicians that he would send them to them. That didn't happen, however, because Crowe had to leave while the band was still playing. So he tried to sell the photos on social media. And that was also successful: users pointed out that it was Helmut Schranner and his Holledauer Musikanten. Shortly thereafter, Schranner responded to the actor's post: "Thank you very much, I got the photo."
Crowe had previously posted posts from Cologne and Nuremberg. In Cologne he visited the cathedral and became acquainted with Cologne music. In Nuremberg, the Oscar winner (best actor 2001 in "Gladiator") immersed himself in German history when he looked at the Palace of Justice, where the trials of leading figures of the Nazi regime were held after World War II. "Goodbye everyone," Crowe said goodbye from Germany and promised: "I'll definitely find the time to come back, there's so much to discover here."

Watch the video: Actors keep slipping into new roles. In order to portray the different characters convincingly, the actors should be changeable. But does that also apply to the highly paid stars among them?
