Want a New Car? Complain to Russell Crowe

Posted: July 20th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Want a New Car? Complain to Russell CroweSubmit Comment
During the filming of "Robin Hood," Denise Yarde, a boom microphone operator, informed producers that she'd be late to the set after her car went up in smoke. When she finally arrived, she started complaining that she now has to buy a new car.

Russell Crowe overheard the conversation and made an insensitive comment. "Well, I suppose it's OK for you, Russell," Yarde fired back. "You've probably never had to worry about finding five grand for a new car."

Crowe quickly realized hat his comments may have been rude, which is why he quickly apologized and gave Yarde 5,000 pounds ($8,100) to help pay for her new vehicle. "There you go. You can buy a 10,000 pound car now," he said.

interesting...part of me feels like he did this just to shut her up....and another part of me feels like he actually felt remorse....probably both...probably compensated her so she could get her job done and help crowe earn his money....sucks for me though...been without a car for almost 2 years....my parents spent $2500 to get it fixed...the guy f*cked it up worse...in addition to losing my car, i get laid off shortly after...my previous two jobs had me fired for something that was out of my hands(sh*tty business/managing techniques if you ask me) and because of that, i can't get a break finding a job because anybody i apply for notices that i was fired and thinks automatically that i'm a bad worker...but hey, these events are supposed to test you right?
MYVAGHURTZ writes:
on July 20th, 2009 at 9:01:48 PM

^Perception is often reality. Maybe you realy are a pretty sh*tty worker but your mind thinks otherwise. And these events dont test you, they break you down...slowly. First you will start to drink alone and next thing you know your snorting a line coke off of some puero rican guys c*ck.

@ MYVAGHURTZ....if you're so sure about me on that, maybe you should be living my life instead...you are so sure about me on this, but my mind thinks otherwise...i guess only friends and family and other people i've worked with, know i'm a good worker and that i've just had rotten luck...and btw, i hardly drink...as far as drugs go, i usually smoke pot and that's it...so next time, keep ur vaginal thoughts inside your walls before spraying judgmental c*m like you 'know' people....sorry to sound rude but you drew first blood there....my first job i was working at a movie theater...i got fired because it was my 4th write-up (the previous 3 were due to being late because i lived half an hour away)...i was getting better on that for 7 months or so, until someone screwed it up for me...the popcorn machine was not cleaned one night, so all the closers including myself got written up for it and led to me being fired...the other job i got fired from was because the whole pizza line crew wasn't improving...so they fired me because i was the most experienced and that's what happened to the last guy before me...so....NOW i've told you the reasons that led to me being fired...do you wanna continue judging me?...do you wanna tell me something about my past that i don't know?...wanna continue acting like YOU were there and I wasn't during every event of my life?....please tell me!!....i got all the time in the world and i can be as psycho as the next person too...and btw, these events DO test you...it's how you handle it that matters

Don't pay that dude any mind Syn. Why would you waste your time? He's a c*cksucker, a prick. He said those things just to get a rise of you, and you gave that f*cking idiot just what he wants.

And Syn, you're going to get fired. You're young. f*ck some bullsh*t job at a theater. Next time you fill out an application, don't TELL THEM you were fired, especially, ESPECIALLY, if it's another bullsh*t job. Lie. People only know what you, or someone else, tell them. Tell them you quit. Most of the time, unless it's a nice job, they won't bother checking. Get some good jobs where you weren't fired under you, and then go for something better. Not a big deal.

i know i know...the theater was my first job...but i was never really good at lying...and besides...nothing could beat the truth...which is why, and i dunno how, they hired me and took a chance anyway...but it doesn't matter nowadays....if i were applying then at this age, they sure would have hired me over somebody with no work experience....but i've been over minimum wage jobs for some time now...not going back to that....especially now that high school kids these days are more crazier than i used to be on these jobs....oh btw i had to reply back...doesn't matter if he/she got something out of me...i got something in return....what is she gonna say that can hurt me?...nothing and i'll tell you why...it's like my grandpa always used to tell me, 'sticks and stones can break my bones but words will never hurt me'...and in this case....'if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything'....she drew first blood there....i could have ignored it...but i felt like saying something back....and i don't react like this all the time, i just do it to see if they continue feeding into it or not...they wanna start something, i will go to every last end to finish it...no matter how out of place i seem...besides...it's fun to test people on this....fun for me i guess

minkowski writes:

I actually own his collected works. Not Wiki.

Nietsche's my philosophical 'man', despite the use of his work in Nazi propaganda. His idea of the superman (ubermensch) is, to me, a very liberating idea. Do you ever have any ideas, Gunslinger? I mean, not the wet dreams where you blow old men for bubblegum. Any serious ideas?
Gunslinger writes:

Anyone can collect books, but then you actually have to read them...and I never settle for anything less than a King-Size Snickers.

Yeah, and I know you know the word "ubermensch" because you've used it in a post before, nimrod, trying to impress people here.
BlueMobius writes:

@Gunslinger Stop claiming to know what Minkowski has or has not shoved up his ass. It disturbs me that you seem to have that inside information.

@Minkowski Nietzsche...nice.

@Minkowski You're still my nemesis.

And if Crowe had wanted to be a good guy, he would have just gone out, bought her a nice, dependable car, and shown up on set with it. Throwing 5K at her is kind of a douche mood, no matter how nice it seems to be (remember, guys, he's a bajillionaire!).

Im sorry Ive been reading nietzchie for years now(since I was 15) I use to love the doors and after reading all about morrison, and finding out that he was interested in Nietzchie i started to read everything the man wrote. And every now and then he does have a valid point, but most of the time, the guy was talking out of his ass. Thats my opinion though, I studied the guy, the super human thing was valid to only a point. Wow what a guy to look up to. Kinda pretentious if u ask me. Regarding the article at hand now, Good for her, for standing up to a prick like Russell Crowe. He was probably shocked that someone would have the balls to stand up to him, after all he is a STAR,, and yeah he probably did want to shut her up. But sh*t good for her for not taking any sh*t from anyone including a vaginal wart like Crowe....

@synthetic1985, Sorry to rub your clit the wrong way. Seriously, take a step back and quit blaming othters for you getting fired. And as a business owner I would have fired your ass the second time you were late. If you live 30 mins away give yourself 45 mins to get to work. Nut up and be a responsible. And @Twatkowski I can sum you up in three words, c*ntY f*ckING RETARD. FYI your avatar makes you look like you have down sydrome.
synthetic1985 writes:
on July 21st, 2009 at 12:36:16 PM

me blaming others?....haha....that's a good one...i'll have to write that down, after all, even if i was blaming them, not like i could have done anything about it back then right?....as for being late...i guess someone like you doesn't understand that freeway traffic doesn't always run smoothly...or the time my tire blew out and was late for that...or the time my car broke down and was late for that also....i mean i had my fair share of being late otherwise....but if you seriously think people should be fired after a 2nd time of being late...well...just be prepared, you can't stop accidents from happening...and they happen more than twice
MYVAGHURTZ writes:
on July 21st, 2009 at 12:59:50 PM

Well if thats the case then you definately were a sh*tty employee and they were looking for an excuse to get rid of you. No one would write you up if your tire blew out or if your car broke down on your way to work (because there is proof of what occured). You do blame others. How about your pizza job? You got fired because the rest of the line couldnt keep up huh. Dude its ok you have a piss poor work ethic, because people like you just make people like me look good.
lostwarrior writes:
on July 21st, 2009 at 1:00:53 PM

@ myvaghurts, right the f*ck on man. I had no idea that others saw the same thing I did. I feel bad for the poor feller(mink) u know... and regarding Syn, dude that is a bummer getting fired and all, but still he is right regarding the time frame if your a half an hour away you should of left earlier, perhaps your employers were tired of you being late and were looking for any excuse.. but hey at least u didnt have a kids to provide for u know. At least that was not on your plate as well. But yeah its never a bad thing to be early for work... just saying man... thats all

ANd mink im sorry but you have to understand nietzchie not just read his books man. They guy was f*cked in the head, and well honestly that would explain some of your opinions though u know.. but still the antichrist WOW, what a f*cking wack job he was. good for you for having Nietzchie being your man, im sure he appreciates that
synthetic1985 writes:
on July 21st, 2009 at 4:38:50 PM

LOL....omg you guys didn't read or understand what i said did you?....i wasn't fired due to being late!!!...living half an hour away had nothing to do with it...like i said before, at the theater, i was doing so much better on not being late, for AT LEAST 6 or 7 months...even my general manager did not want to fire me because even HE told me i was a good worker...i repeatedly would ask him if i could work anything other than concessions....he always kept me in concessions even though i hated it there cuz i was fast...the other closers didn't clean the popcorn machine like they were supposed to while i was in the back taking care of everything else, so the next day, both of them and myself got written up for it...then later on, my GM told me he would have kept me but because it was my 4th write up, it was no longer in his hands...anyway, the pizza job...like i said before also, they picked ME because it was their business policy to fire their most experienced person...both the managers and the other pizza guys knew who was going too slow...what was worse was hearing the other pizza guys tell me 'you shouldn't have been fired, it should have been me'...do you guys understand where i'm coming from now??...or should i post another comment and go further into detail?
MYVAGHURTZ writes:
on July 21st, 2009 at 5:10:02 PM

No worries man. My first comment was just a joke and I was just f*cking with you, but minkowski decided to flap his vagina lips and get involved so I took it further.
synthetic1985 writes:
on July 21st, 2009 at 5:26:19 PM

well no offense...but you should let people know when you're f*cking with them before it's too late...otherwise you come off looking like an *sshole...at least you guys understand me now right?...one thing that was cool that people used to tell me when i was working at the theater was that i used to make popcorn so fast, we'd be overstocked before the lines ever had a chance to pile up...the sucky thing was because of my lates...i would never get the chance for a raise or a better position...like i said before, rotten luck
