I’m not exactly sure on the how or the why, but Academy Award-winning actor Russell Crowe was in Columbus last night… and he think’s we’re cool.
Here’s a little context: Crowe was in the audience at the Ed Sheeran concert at Nationwide Arena. He was so moved by our awesome city and our killer vibes that he decided to tweet about it.

According to BBC, this unlikely bromance started when Ed Sheeran was touring Crowe’s native Australia.
“We became friends through people we know and he was on tour and came to stay,” Russell said in an interview with Australia’s Nova FM.” Crowe was responsible for stirring up some engagement rumors last spring, after calling Sheeran’s girlfriend, Cherry Seaborn, his fiance in an interview.
Regardless of how they came to be friends, we’re just happy that they are.
