(people.monstersandcritics.com) - Russell Crowe insists he has never done a movie purely for money.
The 'American Gangster' star - who lives in a $8.5 million penthouse apartment overlooking Sydney harbour - is adamant he doesn't choose his roles purely for financial gain.
He said: "I have never done a done a movie for money, never. I have to be able to get up and go to work. You've got to have a higher level of motivation than money to get up at 4am day after day for months. Money doesn't do it for me."
Meanwhile, Crowe has revealed he wants to get baptised.
The 43-year-old actor and his wife Danielle are planning to baptise their sons - Charlie, three, and Tennyson, one - and the Australian actor has decided he should join them.
He recently said: "I'd like to do it this year. My parents decided to let my brother and me make our own decisions about God when we got to the right age.
"I started thinking recently, 'If I believe it is important to baptise my kids, why not me?' I do believe there are more important things than what is in the mind of a man. There is something much bigger that drives us all. I'm willing to take that leap of faith."
