Secondly, this outlet in particular seems to have a sick fascination with Russell Crowe’s weight. This is the third story from the Globe about Crowe’s weight that Gossip Cop has encountered in two years. Last February, the outlet claimed Crowe’s friends feared he was “eating himself into the grave.” Gossip Cop determined that was a lie after speaking on background with a source close to the situation. Almost a year to the date ago, that same publication argued the Oscar-winner was lying about wearing a fat suit for certain roles and was, in reality, very fat. That, too, was proven false by a source close to the actor, who confirmed his use of fat suits to Gossip Cop.
