Love him or hate him, Russell Crowe did not deserve to suffer this loss!
With roles in films which are considered iconic, such as Gladiator and Beautiful Mind, the New Zealand born actor Russell Crow cemented his place in Hollywood and made a massive mark in the industry of film.
Back in March, 2021, Crowe lost his father, John Crowe who was 85 years old at the time of his passing. He passed away in his home of 25 years in Coffs Harbour, New South Wales in Australia.
This was a huge blow for the actor who shared a tribute to his late father on the social media and wrote, “I’m posting this because I know there are people all over the world who’s heart he touched and who’s ribs he tickled with his sparkly eyes and his cheeky attitude to everyone, and everything. And this is probably as efficient a method as any to pass on the news.”
Further, Crowe added: “I arrived back in the bush last night. Today, although the sun is shining and the torrential rain has abated, this date will forever be tinged with sadness. My dear old man, my beautiful dad, the most gentle of men, has passed away.”
This year, on the second anniversary of his father’s passing, the actor who will appear in the 2023 movie The Pope’s Exorcist, shared another heartbreak, the death of his dog, Louis the Papillion.
I’m not at all a fan of dressing dogs up, but, a friend bought little Louis a @RalphLauren polo so he can match with dad. I think the other dogs on the farm are going to get jealous. Pretty funny. pic.twitter.com/odmCZwfvA8— Russell Crowe (@russellcrowe) December 21, 2022
Although Crowe tends to keep a low profile and is not very active on social media, he would share photos of Louis. Once, he posted a photo of himself and his dog wearing matching shirts.
Under the cute photo, he wrote, “I’m not at all a fan of dressing dogs up, but, a friend bought little Louis a @RalphLauren polo so he can match with dad. I think the other dogs on the farm are going to get jealous. Pretty funny.”

16 months old.
Tiny, cheeky, brave. He won my heart.
Unfortunately today, on the second anniversary of my fathers passing, Louis was hit by a truck.
We tried to get him to the vet, but he died in my arms while I was telling him how much we loved him. pic.twitter.com/zIwzUz8Ljx
Sadly, Louis got hit by a truck and didn’t manage to survive despite the efforts by Crowe and the veterinarians. “This is Louis the Papillion. 16 months old. Tiny, cheeky, brave. He won my heart. Unfortunately today, on the second anniversary of my father’s passing, Louis was hit by a truck. We tried to get him to the vet, but he died in my arms while I was telling him how much we loved him.”
We are so very sorry for Crowe’s loss.
