“Noah” Actors See Pope In Roma

They were turned down for a private meet-and-greet, but the creative team behind the new “Noah” movie — which opens next week but has been seen by almost no one: never a good sign — were part of the Pope’s General Audience today at the Vatican. The creative team behind “Noah” had requested to meet Pope Francis privately, but that request was denied, Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi told newspaper La Stampa. After the audience today, the picture’s star, Russell Crowe, tweeted: “Ciao Roma, my love for your eternal light just grows deeper. Thank you holy father @Pontifex for the blessing.” Is Crowe headed for Mel Gibson Land? The Aussie actor with anger issues who divorces his wife and turns to conservative Catholicism?
