Russell Crowe at 18

I was looking at interviews Germaine Greer gave when she was promoting her book "The Beautiful Boy" some years ago, and found these quotes:

[quote]Andrew Denton: You said in an interview with the 'Sydney Morning Herald' a couple of years ago, "A woman of taste is a pederast %E2%80%94 boys rather than men."

[quote]Germaine Greer: Yeah.

[quote]Andrew Denton: What do you mean by that?

[quote]Germaine Greer: Well, boys are beautiful, see, they're not beardy and singlety.

[quote]Andrew Denton: What are%E2%80%A6 What's%E2%80%A6?

[quote]Germaine Greer: My favourite example of this, by the way, is Russell Crowe. When Russell Crowe was 18, he was the most winsome, lovely creature. Now he's this sort of puffy, shambling, baggy, belligerent%E2%80%A6 He's completely different. The charm has evaporated completely.

And from another interview:

[quote]GERMAINE GREER: We're talking about the fact that there is a time in a man's life when he is not yet a man and not still a child, where he maybe more likely than any other time at his life, he may be very, very beautiful. If you look at Russell Crowe today, can you remember what he looked like when he was 18? He was gorgeous.

[quote]JANA WENDT: So you prefer the 18-year-old Russell Crowe?

[quote]GERMAINE GREER: I think so. And I think any woman of taste would prefer the 18-year-old Russell Crowe.

So, does anyone have a picture of this mythically beautiful 18-year-old Russell Crowe?

Just go to show ya.

Even people who appear to stand for freedom, liberation and iconoclasm can be idiotically bogged down in traditional notions of what is hot. Of course, its fine for her to prefer young stuff but to generalize her taste to good or refined taste is egotistical, closed-minded and, given that she subscribes to a hegemonic aesthetic, downright patriarchal.

This made me think of Jason Patric in Lost Boys. He was breathtaking in the movie, looking right on the cusp of manhood. And once he reached it and lost that boyish look he wasn't as hot.

No, she's not, at least not from most women's perspective. A boy is just that...a boy. A straight woman is looking for a MAN.

'Winsome and lovely' are not attributes that really get the motor running for anyone past the hearts, unicorns and Hello Kitty age.

R10, there is a famous kiss-and-tell story about Russell that was doing the rounds. Apparently, in the "heat of battle" he started exclaiming "Go, Russ, go!", doubtless to urge himself on to greater exertion.

Why do so many women who politically challenge what's seen as a typical male and societal obsession with young nubile women and the lack of erotic respect for mature women, feel the need to hypocritically emulate those it by not only exalting male youth but by also denigrating mature men?

A true benchmark of liberation, Germaine, would be rebelling against patriarchy by acknowledging that mature people of both sexes can be sexy.

Because young people are by and large more attractive than old people, r37.

Is it fair? No. Is it nice? No. Is it PC? No.

But it's the truth, and spouting a bunch of feminist anti-patriarchal malarkey or making an effort to say nice things about the attractiveness of older women (or men) or pointing out an attractive mature person won't really change that.

Young people are more beautiful than old people. Accept it and move on from there.

Poor Germs. It's interesting only in the fact that she says is now considered taboo for gay men to say, and gay media doesn't dare print it.

For example, see the long interview in the latest issue of the Swedish fashion mag Bon, with Karl Andersson talking about his boy publishing ventures: ostensibly an art project provoked by Paglia. Gay media today, apart from perhaps Butt, wouldn't dare dream of printing such an article.

I'm a woman and I agree with her, although I've never expressed my views to anyone before. It's not true of all men, of course - many of them need time to grow into their looks, but that is true of many women as well. Generally, though, I resent society's expectation that women are supposed to find old men attractive, and I resent having men who have long lost their looks (if they ever had them to begin with) thrust upon us as "sex symbols."

"spouting a bunch of feminist anti-patriarchal malarkey or making an effort to say nice things about the attractiveness of older women (or men) or pointing out an attractive mature person won't really change that"%0D %0D You're missing the point. It's right and proper, and healthy, that young people find other young people attractive. Youth and beauty do go together - what is repulsive about Greer, however, is she's in her 70s and still mooning over adolescent boys. That is sick, that is warped, that is disturbed, and a sure sign of what a flaming narcissist she is (as if any more proof were needed). %0D %0D And - in general - my experience is that old people Greer's age who continue to obsess over teenagers and twentysomethings & insist that it's "normal" are invariably people in a state of arrested development emotionally. Of course it's normal to celebrate the beauty of youth, but it's also normal for people, as they age, to start finding other people attractive who are in their age range. Greer evidently doesn't, and she's proud of that fact, and she also insists that it's a sign of a superior intellect that she thinks like she does. She acts like a male chauvinist asshole - only in reverse - and then expects people to praise her for it. %0D %0D But she's still an idiot. The only reason she thinks like this is she can't fathom a relationship based on anything other than mere voyeurism. By her logic, nobody should get involved with anyone else at all, they should just look at porn all day - or if you have a partner, you should simply trade them in as soon as they pass their 25th birthday, and simply find another 18-year-old, go another seven years, then dump them and go again. That is the logical conclusion one should draw from Greer's argument. %0D %0D The other thing she doesn't mention, or doesn't notice, is that Russell Crowe really did get better looking in his 30s. Sure, he doesn't look too great now, but he really was not that great looking as a teen. There are guys (and girls) who are at there most stunning on their first cusp of adulthood, but Crowe wasn't one of them. And oftentimes those beautiful Adonises - like Jude Law for example - age rapidly and lose their looks very fast. They peaked young and the bloom went off the rose early.

Watch the movie "The Sum of Us." It's the one where Crowe plays a gay man, quite nicely too. He was adorable. If he doesn't look the same now as he did decades ago, so what? I don't think he gives a damn about what Greer or anybody else says about him.

r52 is right - Crowe was his hottest circa Gladiator. Ten times more appealing than the "Le Roq" era.

For what it's worth, I'm female, 42, and have never been attracted to teenagers. I started dating men that were 10 years older than me (at least) by the time I was 19.

Now when I see an 18 year old boy I admit to appreciating the beauty of their physique. But I'd rather watch female porn for kicks and fantasies and keep on sleeping with my "old man".

You missed all chapters of the book. Kurt Cobain was gorgeous, he died gorgeous and unhappiest. Marilyn Monroe was gorgeous and died miserably and unhappiest. The list is long. Nothing is more gorgeous than ageing with the beloved one. Russell Crowe was smart enough to leave LA; Instead of ending 6 feet under with OD, AIDS or writing scripts where all sleep with all in some huge gorgeously hideous Roman orgy. He got 2 gorgeous kids in gorgeous Sydney with gorgeous peaceful cows. Happiness is gorgeous.

Some people mature nicely, even outstripping youth. Also lots of ugly ducklings go through an awkward phase.

It's interesting how we pine for our lost youth and beauty, but if you ask most adults if they would want to relive their late teens, the vast majority say, "no way." For me it was such a time of angst and unhappiness that I would never want to go back there.

In australia, a 'singlet' is what I think americans call a tank top or undershirt, and the British call a 'vest'.

For a very long time, many working class blue collar men in oz would wear a navy blue singlet, usually navy blue short shorts (often called 'stubbies' - not to be confused with the term 'stubby' for a small bottle of beer! Confusing I know!) and footy (football) sox and steel capped workbooks. This unofficial 'uniform' was especially prevalent in the building and construction industry, among dock workers, etc.

When work by young, tanned, fit, sporty, athletic young men it looked hot. Left very little to the imagination...

Sadly tho, those godlike young men twenty years later often had ceased to play sport, ate junk food, drank a lot, smoked a lot and had way too much sun. Yet they still wore their 'uniform' - which had long since ceased to be flattering to their big beer guts.

The whole singlet and shorts look is kinda disappearing now - most industries now have official uniforms that cover a bit more skin and are more practical - but in the while it's a hot country (temperature-wise) - and especially among older straight working class guys you can still find many wearing it - which us what I assume Greer means by 'singlety'. Any old working class urban or country pub of a summer's afternoon when the working day is done you'll find em congregating outside - they're no longer allowed to smoke indoors by law.

Sorry - third para was meant to read

When worn by young, tanned, fit, sporty, athletic young men it looked hot. Left very little to the imagination...

Outta memory I think Crowe himself or the actors that play his dad and/or boyfriend might well wear this 'uniform' in 'The Sum of Us' - and I think evne the very young & beautiful Mel Gibson may wear it in the film 'Tim' as well (and if that's the case - now picture current day Mel trying to get away with the same look...not pleasant!)

I always think the singlet-and-shots-and-boots look resembles the old AFL or Aussie Rule football uniform here. The shorts were like freakin' hotpants for men in the old days...

And in his early stand up work, Oz comedian Paul Hogan used to wear a similar outfit while he did his working-class schtick (tho he tended to wear a buttoned-up shit - sans sleeves - instead of a singlet to go with his shorts, footy sox & boots). Sure he wouldn't be seen dead in that these days - for which everyone is eternally grateful.

but yeah - a 'wifebeater' is a jacket - a 'singlet' is a tank-top style undershirt that used to be deemed appropriate for workwear in oz (and still is in some circles) if it's dark blue or black.

white ones have always been considered underwear tho.

Germaine Greer loves to be controversial. She'd love this thread, especially as the subject matter is very old news. She's gone on to many other controversies since this one.

She bothers me in that she is an academic but comes out with the most ridiculous theories. On the other hand she is really entertaining, and along with the nonsense she also can make a lot of sense on some things.

As for older women ogling man-boys - I don't think it is quite like that, but if it (whatever it s) is so very objectionable, I guess we'd better try and get the Italians to ban everyone over the age of 20 (female or male) from visiting the Statue of David in Florence!!

Some second-hand gossip about the young Russell Crowe, FWIW.

A friend of mine was a big Rocky Horror fan when she was 15, and she and her school friend used to hang around the stage door of the Melbourne production in 1987. Crowe, who would've been about 23 at the time, was playing the Eddie/Dr Scott role.

Anyhow, she said that while the rest of the cast was generally pleasant, there was something really 'off' about Crowe. He would show the girls naked pictures of male cast members in the shower and say stuff like, 'You want to suck (cast member's) big dick, don't you?' And then smirk at their embarrassment.

My friend said they were totally weirded out by him. Not just because a grown man was showing them nude pics and saying aggressively sexual stuff, but by the fact that Crowe really seemed to be getting off on how uncomfortable he was making them.
