Baby Superman nailed Russell Crowe a few times in 'Man of Steel'
Russell Crowe has a reputation as quite the tough guy, but he finally met his match playing Superman's dad Jor-El in Man of Steel. Because nobody can outwit or outgun a baby Superman who poops on you.
“On this movie, I got farted on first,” Crowe said, according to Starpulse. “That was okay. Pissed on, that was a little inconvenient, then the topper happened. Under those hot lights, it was after lunch, to be expected, and I got a handful of the essential Kryptonian material.”
Crowe has his own kids, but his time on set was a completely new set of hazards.
“In my own experience as a father of two, I've managed to dodge all the piss and the poo even though I'm pretty slick with a nappy,” Crowe said. “I had a very interesting experience being a father on this movie. I think (director) Zack (Snyder) employed four babies as the recently born Kal-El, so I learned a lot. I had new experiences as a parent on this movie that I hadn't previously had. So thank you, Zack.”
Something tells us if he negotiated a back-end bonus into his contract, that wasn't what he had in mind.
