Russell Crowe’s new movie NOAH opens this Thursday. When you watch it, spare some consideration for how hard it was to film. Russell ended up crying one day during filming after he suffered hypothermia.

He says, "We were doing a scene in Iceland where I had to fall into the sea... I'd been in and out of the sea, half-naked, filming all day... physically it was very demanding. There were these rain towers in the sky that could flood eight football fields in 30 seconds, and it was constant rain. We had 36 days of it.

"It gets to the point where it's like Chinese water torture. You can't take it anymore. I went into hypothermia. When we wrapped, I was lying on these stones and I couldn't get up. I couldn't stop shaking. I couldn't stop crying.

Seven or eight people put blankets on me and sat on me until I stopped. It was crazy - they were hugging me, trying to stop me shaking. Suddenly I stopped crying and shaking. I pushed them all off and walked back to my trailer.

They were like, 'Do you want anything?' and I was like, 'F**k off! It's done. Give me a glass of wine.'"
