Russell Crowe Complains About The Weather

Published February 27, 2013

Thespian and noted gladiator Russell Crowe appeared on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Monday night and took the opportunity to chat about the weather, RÚV reports.
The Aussie actor/musician had spent some time in Iceland last summer filming the upcoming flick “Noah,” which retells the classic biblical tale of a man and his arc full of animals, and charming the people of Reykjavík with the musical stylings of his band, The Ordinary Fear of God (previously known as ’30 Odd Foot of Grunts’) at Menningarnótt. Crowe plays the titular character in the film.
Speaking of his experiences filming in Iceland, Crowe told Leno that the weather in Iceland is very unpredictable and can change in the blink of an eye. He also quipped that summer in Iceland would be lovely if there were more than 10 days of sun.
For factual clarity, summer 2012 boasted a record amount of sunshine, with Reykjavík experiencing 836.6 hours of sunshine in May, June, and July.
