Russell Crowe is responding to body shaming comments head on.
After new photos emerged of the actor, 52, playing rugby at a park in Australia, Howard Stern allegedly made disparaging comments about Crowe’s size on his radio show.
A fan tweeted to Crowe that Stern, 53, “goofed on his weight” and “said he works hard to stay thin and in shape.”
The Oscar winner responded to the tweet with a tongue-in-cheek takedown of Stern: “I can bench press young Howard … He cannot say the same …”
Crowe has famously gained and lost weight for roles.
