FiRussel Crowelming for his latest film Robin Hood wore down Hollywood actor Russell Crowe but it also made him feel 20 years younger than his actual age.



The 46-year-old actor admits that stepping into the legendary role of the archer who robbed from the rich and gave to the poor was rejuvenating, Access Hollywood reported. "I pushed myself really hard for Robin Hood. You wake up in the morning and you feel 20 years younger," Crowe said.



"I'm in a continuous death battle with my own body. I injured myself a lot on Gladiator. I actually injured myselfon a silly little ice hockey movie called Mystery, Alaska,' because I'd never skated... I've got wrist injuries and hand injuries from doing so much boxing (in Cinderella Man). I've got stuff all over the place," he added.



The film sees the New Zealand born actor pairing up with Gladiator filmmaker Ridley Scott for the fifth time.Crowe insists that this Robin Hood is very different from the earlier adaptations of the hero."Most Robin Hood films end with King Richard riding in and saving the day," Crowe said.

"The 100-year history of cinema of Robin Hood had gotten so far away from the reality of the real Robin Hood story. We tried to get back to the core values and push it off into the metaphoricalm what was his end game? Was there a greater political purpose?," he added.
