It changed how people saw me and what I do for a living, and I’ve been very fortunate to be in many big films, but the legs in this film are amazing.”(Deadline)

Crowe continued, “Here it is, the year is 2023 and we shot this movie in 1999. I guarantee that Gladiator will be on prime-time TV somewhere in the world tonight.
