Russell Crowe spoke about the moment he reunited with his “Gladiator” horse during an appearance on Thursday’s “Late Show”.

Crowe rode the horse, named George, in the 2000 flick, for which he won an Oscar. He then reunited with him on the 2010 film “Robin Hood”.

Crowe said he told the animal, “Do you realize we won the Academy Award?

“And call me crazy, I don’t mind, he gave me every indication that he already knew that.”

Crowe also talked about becoming unrecognizable for the Showtime series “The Loudest Voice”, in which he plays Roger Ailes.

“When we first started, the prosthetic process was six hours but over time we got it down,” adding the quickest he could transform into the get-up was two hours and 17 minutes.

Crowe also identified the bald caps, neck piece, and heavy prosthetic’s downsides.

He explained, “When you sweat, sooner or later as water has its will and way, it just starts to spurt out of you. You’ll be sitting and having a conversation and you can see in the eyes of the person you’re talking to that something dramatic just happened.”
