Russell Crowe Responds To Being Body Shamed With One Simple Tweet
Russell Crowe has hit back at body shamers after a picture of the Hollywood star circulated around social media.
The Australian actor has been turned into a meme this week after he was pictured kicking a rugby ball about in the sun last weekend in Sydney. He was seen wearing a tank top and shorts, because, y'know, it's scorching Down Under.
That flew over the heads of sites like Page Six, who ran a story entitled 'Russell Crowe no longer looks like a Gladiator' below a featured image showing the difference between Crowe in the 2000 epic and the pictures taken of him last weekend.

The 52-year-old has now replied.
In response to a tweet mentioning how radio legend Howard Stern joked about Crowe's weight, he replied: "I can bench press young Howard... he cannot say the same..."
Stern had previously said he works hard 'to say thin and in shape'.
@russellcrowe Howard Stern just goofed on your weight. He said he works hard to "stay thin and in shape." @RLW_Mole @robertAbooey @THR pic.twitter.com/atrNEPlmPQ

"I prefer your body type on a man any day of the week," one gushed.
Another quipped: "We treat you like chocolate. The more the better. Addictive!"
Chocolate? That's adoration if I ever saw it.
