Crowe reached out to the Drive star and they made plans to have “a quiet little intimate dinner” with their significant others.

But on the day of the date, Crowe learned that his wife at the time had invited 12 of her girlfriends over to meet the star -- including her mother.

He said: “Well, I can’t have him walk into the room with his girlfriend where there’s like sixteen women. So I re-balanced it. I started calling blokes. I called RZA from the Wu-Tang Clan. I called Eli Roth, I called all these friends and got them all together. So Ryan walks into the room expecting this intimate dinner party and there’s 30 people.”
