Giuliana Rancic has interviewed countless celebrities throughout her time as an E! correspondent, and was recently asked if one interview stuck out among all of them as the most awkward. She told Bravo’s Andy Cohen that Russell Crowe really took the cake. What on earth did the Noah star do to qualify in this manner?
“Russell Crowe was so mean to me,” Giuliana said. “I had been at E! for a year and I thought, ‘I’m going to go easy because he’s pretty tough.’ And so I said, ‘Are you excited to be here? Your big movie premiere.’ And he goes, ‘I’m contractually obligated to be here. What’s your next question?'”
It didn’t end there either.
“And I go, ‘OK, um, isn’t it so wonderful to see all the fans?’ And he goes, ‘That’s your second question?’ And then he goes, ‘One, two, you’re through’ and walked away,” she added.
Wow. Can you even imagine being so rude? “Awkward” really seems to be a very mild description of Giuliana Rancic’s interview with Russell Crowe. He was completely, unacceptably rude to her.

The Giuliana and Bill star will soon return to E!, as the next season of the show starts back up on April 1st. Fans are no doubt wondering if the couple will consider adding baby number two to their family. Will they move to Chicago permanently? One thing they definitely won’t be wondering is will Russell Crowe make a guest appearance on their show?
Does Russell Crowe’s behavior during his interview with Giuliana Rancic surprise you? Or is this apropos for the actor?
It sounds like Russell Crowe owes Giuliana Rancic a giant apology–or at the very least an exclusive interview (a polite one this time) the next time he’s in town.
