Russell Crowe is allegedly not taking showers on the set of his new movie Noah.
The actor has teamed up with Oscar nominated director Darren Aronofsky for a re-telling of the biblical story in which he will take on the title role.
And Crowe is working hard to get under the skin of his character and not showering is something he is trying out.
A source told the National Enquirer: "He's been experimenting with skipping showers, which is something he did on Gladiator as well, to get an appropriately gritty look.
"He has to look like a very old, very weather man for this movie but you don't want to be inhaling when he walks past. He reeks!"
An all star cast has been assembled for the movie as Crowe is joined by Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins and Ray Winstone.
Noah is not released until 2014 but next year we are going to be seeing plenty of Crowe as the new Superman movie Man Of Steel is set for release as is Les Miserables.
Noah is released 28th March 2014
