Russell Crowe Talks Extreme Iceland Weather on Leno

Actor Russell Crowe told Jay Leno on The Tonight Show on Monday that he struggled with extreme weather while filming Darren Aronofsky’s Noah in Iceland last year.

Crowe told Leno that the conditions were harsh and the weather changeable. “Iceland is a tough place. When they have a good summer, that means that there’s been more than ten sunny days. And it can turn at the drop of a hat, the weather. It was pretty extreme.”

Crowe said he opted to sleep in a trailer on set, rather than commute back and forth to town each day. “One night I didn’t sleep all night because the trailer was just rocking with the wind. And you always know it’s been a windy night when you wake up in the morning in your Rv, and you’re walking downhill to go to the kitchen [because] the nose [of the trailer] had buried itself in the ground. And I open the door to go to the gym and it was no longer there. It was two miles down the valley. So it was very challenging, but so, so beautiful,” he said.

Noah is scheduled to premiere in March 2014.
