The Biggest Ego On Earth

Oh, give me a break...

Actor Russell Crowe has revealed he was told he was being targeted by suspected al-Qaeda terrorists who wanted to kidnap him ahead of the 2001 Oscars.

(...)

He was told it was about "taking iconographic Americans out of the picture as sort of a cultural destabilisation plot", he said.

(...)

"Suddenly it looks like I think I'm Elvis Presley, because everywhere I go there are all these FBI guys," he told the magazine.

(BBC)

First of all, Russ m'boy, you're not an "iconographic American," in that you are neither "iconographic" nor "American." Your not being American is nothing againt you, mind, it's just a simple statement of fact.

Secondly, how up yourself do you have to be to believe that your loss would somehow "destabilize" the culture? Is the intended result that Americans go on a riot, looting and pillaging our own cities because Russell Crowe didn't show up to accept his Oscar?

And finally... dude, it's not the security guards that make you look like a flaming egomaniac, it's the fact that you actually think you're important enough to be pivotal in a terrorist plot.

Jeez, talk about confusing real life with the movies... next he'll be wanting to be president.

PS: even if Russell Crowe was kidnapped by al Qaeda, we'd have nothing to worry about... Russ knows a thing or two about bitch-slapping an uppity foreigner.
