Russell Crowe posted a moving farewell tribute to Shane Warne overnight, revealing one of their last dinners together surrounded by loved ones.
The Oscar winner and Souths co-owner, who was Warne’s first pick to play him in a Hollywood film, took to Twitter to remember their “last dinner at Crown”.
“Gold medallists, billionaires, fastest gun in the world. Oscars. Amy when she was a baby shark,” Crowe said of the moment.
“Lots of love Shane.”
After the “devastating news” of Warne’s death, Crowe said earlier the cricket legend was a “genius player, grand company, loyal friend”.
“Having a hard time accepting it,” Crowe wrote.
Warne had built up a bromance with Crowe, a fellow cricket lover who was his first pick to play him on the big screen ahead of Chris Hemsworth or Leonardo DiCaprio.
“He’s [Crowe] such a quality actor, has done a lot of different roles,” Warne told the Herald Sun in 2019.
“Chris Hemsworth is killing it and he’s an Aussie from Victoria too. I think we should have Margot Robbie too. We could have the All-Australian affair.”
