Los Angeles: Actor Russell Crowe started appreciating mime after he saw the performance of Marcel Marceau, an internationally acclaimed French actor and mime artist. But clarifies that he has "never intentionally performed a mime".

"Something that a cause much mirth among acquaintances is that the first time I ever went to the theatre was to see mime artist Marcel Marceau," quoted Crowe as saying.

"It`s the truth, and I loved it. He was at the top of his game. But just for clarity, I have never intentionally performed a mime," he added.

Russell, 49, also admitted his love for films as a child, and recalled sneaking into an afternoon show of ‘Papillon’.
