If Russell Crowe doesn’t strike you as a particularly religious man, it’s for good reason – he isn’t one. In fact, he doesn’t really partake in the whole “faith” situation, but oddly, he still really likes Pope Francis, whom he recently met, fulfilling a longtime goal that started with Twitter outreach.
As he explained on Good Morning America:
“Look I’m not Catholic and I’ve never felt any connection with any previous Pope, but I like this guy,” he explained.
“I like what he says… he’s changing the tone of the way you regard the Pope and I think it is a magnificent thing. I was very privileged and humbled to be in that environment.”
