Russell Crowe’s obesity gets Sienna Miller fired

By: The Superficial / January 13, 2009

Russell Crowe’s stubborn refusal to diet has cost Sienna Miller the role of Maid Marian in Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood remake Nottingham. The Daily Mail reports

Crowe, 44, has not shed the four stone he gained for his role in the recent Body Of Lies, where he played a former journalist who hunts down terrorists from his armchair.
Fearing his older, gutsier Robin would look ‘laughable’ alongside her petit Marian, Miller was canned from ‘Nottingham’, a £110million remake of the Robin Hood tale.

With producers scrambling to find a replacement that will make Russell look more virile, possible contenders include Rosie O’Donnell, Kirstie Alley and comedian Louie Anderson who allegedly wants the same salary as Crowe: Unlimited chicken wings.
