I must report that Hollywood star Russell Crowe is not MISERABLE at all.
In actual fact, he happens to be one of the most generous actors around…he doesn’t even call in his gambling debts.
One of the cast in Bafta and Oscar-nominated movie Les Miserables put a £1,000 wager on with the egg-chasing fanatic, betting Wales would win a rugby match against the Aussies.
Iwan Lewis said: “It wasn’t long until Wales were heading out to Australia for their three-Test series.
“Because Wales had won the Grand Slam, I was convinced we were going to win.
“I’d bet him £1,000…which is a lot of money for me…and he said, ‘I’ll take that bet’.”
Australia duly beat the tourists.
Iwan said: “I was a little bit worried that he’d ask for the money but instead I got a package through the post with an Australia rugby shirt from him.”
Russell might be over to pick up some silverware at the BAFTAS. Perhaps he’ll be round to pick up the money then.
