Los Angeles, April 21 (IANS) Actor Russell Crowe started appreciating mime after he saw the performance of Marcel Marceau, an internationally acclaimed French actor and mime artist. But clarifies that he has "never intentionally performed a mime".
"Something that causes much mirth among acquaintances is that the first time I ever went to the theatre was to see mime artist Marcel Marceau," contactmusic.com quoted Crowe as saying.
"It's the truth, and I loved it. He was at the top of his game. But just for clarity, I have never intentionally performed a mime," he added.
Russell, 49, also admitted his love for films as a child, and recalled sneaking into an afternoon show of "Papillon".
