Acclaimed Australian director George Ogilvie has revealed what it was like to work with a young Russell Crowe on his 1990 film The Crossing.

"He was a force. He worked hard but he did expect everyone around him to work hard as well, there was no give and take."

"None of the crew liked him, thought he was an arrogant little p*** pot."

The Mad Max director added that the 52-year-old was originally late to the audition for the 1990 movie.
