Russell Crowe Reunited With His ‘Gladiator’ Horse


>>Stephen: WE’RE HERE WITH
RUSSELL CROWE! ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

THIS?>>THIS IS TRUTH IN MEDIA,
LETTING YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT’S GOING ON IN CASE YOU FEEL A
LITTLE PERTURBED.>>Stephen: THE REASON I
EXPLAIN THAT IS YOU HAVE A LONG HISTORY WITH HER.>>I DO. WE TID A TV SHOW TOGETHER BACK
WHEN WE WERE LITERALLY KIDS, CALLED BRIDES OF CHRIST, ABOUT
THE CATHOLIC CHURCH. OH, LOOK AT THAT…>>Stephen: YES. AND SHE SAYS WHEN SHE MOVED TO
L.A. YOU USED TO CRASH AT HER PLACE SOMETIMES.>>I SLEPT ON HER COUCH A NUMBER
OF TIMES.>>HE STAYED WITH ME WHEN HE
FIRST CAME TO L.A. WHEN AUDITIONING.>>Stephen: HE CRASHED ON YOUR
COUCH?>>YEAH. HE OWES ME MONEY, ACTUALLY.>>Stephen: HE’S ON TOMORROW. CAN YOU TELL HIM?>>Stephen: YEAH, I’LL TELL
HIM. HOW MUCH IS IT?>>I FEEL LIKE JUST PUT SOME
MONEY IN THE POT, LIKE $25 OR SOMETHING FOR SOME GROCERIES.>>Stephen: SURE, I’LL GET IT
FROM HIM. DO YOU HAVE YOUR WALLET ON YOU?>>WELL, SHE CAME TO MY HOTEL
ROOM LAST NIGHT AND DRANK COPIOUS BOXES OF VERY EXPENSIVE
RED, I THINK I’VE GOT IT COVERED. ( APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: OKAY, GOOD. I FOUND OUT SHE’S NOT THE ONLY

REUNITED WITH SOME OF THE HORSES THAT YOU’VE RIDDEN IN YOUR
MOVIES.>>YEAH, I HAVE, YOU KNOW.>>Stephen: YEAH. LIKE HERE YOU ARE IN GLADIATOR.>>LET’S HAVE A LOOK. CAN I LOOK.>>Stephen: YEAH. THAT’S GEORGE.>>Stephen: THAT’S GEORGE? YEAH. SO MANY YEARS LATER, I WAS ON
ROBIN HOOD AND GEORGE WAS ASSIGNED TO ONE OF THE OTHER
CHARACTERS. BUT I HAD A LITTLE CHAT WITH
GEORGE, BECAUSE THIS WHOLE — THIS COMES FROM, I THINK IT
FEELS LIAM NEESON SAID THAT HE BELIEVED A HORSE HE WORKED WITH
EARLIER RECOGNIZED HIM, AND I RESPONDED ON SOCIAL MEDIA, WELL,
OF COURSE, YOU DON’T THINK YOU’RE GOING TO GO TO WORK OR
HOLIDAY AND OCOME BACK AND YOUR DOG DOESN’T RECOGNIZE YOU. SAME THING WITH A HORSE. IF YOU HAD A DEEP RELATIONSHIP
WITH A HORSE OR COW, FOR THAT MATTER, ALL ANIMALS WILL
REMEMBER YOU IF YOU’VE CONNECTED WITH THEM. I HAD A THING WITH GEORGE.>>Stephen: TEN YEARS LATE
THERE ARE HORSE RECOGNIZED YOU?>>OH, YEAH.>>Stephen: OKAY. AND I WENT UP TO GEORGE, AND
I SAID TO HIM, VERY QUIETLY, HELLO, GEORGE. AND HE SORT OF PUT HIS HEAD DOWN
AND SORT OF PUSHED INTO MY CHEST A LITTLE BIT. AND I SAID, DO YOU REALIZE, WE
WON THE ACADEMY AWARD? ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
>>Stephen: THAT’S NICE. AND CALL ME CRAZY, HE GAVE ME
EVERY INDICATION HE ALREADY KNEW THAT.>>Stephen: YOU STILL HAVE A
BAND, 30 AUGHT FOOT OF GRUNT?>>THAT DISBANDED BUT THANKS FOR
KEEPING UP. ( PIANO RIFF )
( APPLAUSE ) JUST A LITTLE COMEDY OF THERE,
STEVE. I JUST DID A LITTLE COMEDY. ( LAUGHTER )
>>Stephen: YES. THEN IT BECAME ANOTHER THING
AND ANOTHER THING. RIGHT AT THE MOMENT, I HAVE A
BAND CALLED INDOOR GARDEN PARTY. WE’VE JUST BEEN RECORDING IN
STOCKHOLM. BUT THE LAST TIME WITH INDOOR
GARDEN PARTY IS CALLED THE MUSICAL AND THAT’S ON iTunes
AND SPOTIFY AND THAT SORT OF STUFF. WHEN IT CAME OUT, IT WENT TO
NUMBER ONE IN THE UK. VERY BRIEFLY.>>Stephen: WH WHAT KIND OF MUSI
ARE WE TALKING?>>INDOOR GARDEN PARTY IS FIVE
PEOPLE, FOUR SIRNTION AND A PRODUCER. BUT ALL THE SINGERS PLAY
INSTRUMENTS AND WRITE AS WELL. SO THE ALBUM PLAYS MORE LIKE A
PLAY LIST THAN A TRADITIONAL ALBUM. BECAUSE THE VOICE AND THE
PERSPECTIVE OF THE BAND CHANGES SO DRAMATICALLY BUT THAT’S WHAT
WE LOVE ABOUT DOING IT.>>Stephen: DO YOU TRADEOFF
INSTRUMENTS?>>YES, WE SWAP THINGS AROUND
AND IT’S VERY FREE IN THAT WAY. WE TEND TO BRING GUESTS ON. SO YOU NEVER KNOW, WHENEVER YOU
GO INTO A GARDEN PARTY, WON’T BE THE SAME.>>Stephen: MIGHT BE A HORSE. IF IT’S A BIG ENOUGH VENUE. ONE WHERE WE’VE GOT TWO MEANS OF
EGRESS. ( LAUGHTER )
YOU BROUGHT UP THE HORSE>>STEPHEN: “THE LOUDEST VOICE”
PREMIERES JUNE 30 ON SHOWTIME. RUSSELL CROWE, EVERYBODY! WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH A
PERFORMANCE BY THE RACONTEURS.

  1. Stephen for the love of all that is… SHUT UP and let your guest speak!! I get you have a job to do but damn man..

  2. Born in New Zealand in sixty-four

    A hot-headed actor named Russell Crowe

    He loves to act but he loves one thing more

    Fightin' Round The World!

    He fights his directors and he fights his fans

    It's a problem no one understands

    If there's two things he loves it's fighting and

    FIGHTIN ROUND THE WORLD~

    Makin' movies, makin' music and

    FIGHT-INNN' ROUND THE WOOOOORLLLLLLD!

  3. Russel is a Great actor, but he has one of the best Voices in show business. I could listen to him read a dictionary.

  4. Colbert should learn to know his subject ask his questions and then shut up and let his guest talk, funny that would then be a chat show!

  5. To all that say russell is aging… so what!!!! do any of us look the same as we did when we were younger??? Good on ya Russell,, and horses DO remember people,,,,,brilliant actor, much respect!!!

  6. Russell Crowe is turning into Orson Welles. He would be great in a biopic of him, he's the spitting image.

  7. Dude, you may be a hell of an asshole in real life (at least that's how social media and gossip shoes portrait him), but if you do have that kind of relationship with a horse…respect…

  8. Russel you must visit the Peel Fresco live jazz bar. Every night is how you dercribed your music. In Hong Kong

  9. I write what I
    write only because, knowing what can free people from suffering and
    corruption of soul, cannot be silent.  Lev Tolstoy The Law of Love
    and the Law of Violence

  10. Lies cover the cruelties of life, cruelties cause spreading
    of the lies, and both grow like a snowball.  Lev
    Tolstoy The Law of Love and the Law of Violence

  11. For everybody trash talking Colbert for interrupting, I'm not sure it's fair. First of all, his question about it being ten years added something to the story and helped make the end better. Secondly, Mr. Crowe did finish his point. Finally, the job of an interviewer is to make the guest look good, and not let them ramble on… Maybe that's NOT what Mr. Crowe was doing here, but Colbert has to be in the habit of keeping things snappy. No guest wants to leave a boring impression to the audience.

  12. colbert used to be smart and witty, now he's just another media drone
    kimmel used to make parody stuff, now he's just another drone too
    then there's the other kid who bangs his hand on the table every time he fakes laughs, he should've stayed on SNL

    I fucking can't stand their faces now, they're so fake.
