More Penis-Related News, Plus TMI About Russell Crowe's Junk (UPDATED)

More

Russell Crowe likes Jews, but thinks we're barbarians. Barbarians in funny little hats:

The actor pointed out what he believes to be a double standard, saying it is "interesting that female circumcision is widely considered barbaric, while male circumcision is so widely accepted."

Crowe clarified that he is not anti-Semitic, saying he loves his Jewish friends with their "apples and the honey and the funny little hats". However, he implored them to stop "cutting" their babies.

The Aussie actor proudly admitted that his own foreskin is still intact, saying "it's cold here in Ireland, it's like a turtle neck, but for my penis".

UPDATE: Apparently this bit about the turtle was from a retweet, not as Haaretz has it, from Crowe himself. Funny line, though.
