RUSSELL Crowe insists it wasn’t his decision to fire Sienna Miller from his new movie Robin Hood.
The actor — who plays the lead role in Ridley Scott‘s Sherwood Forest romp — says he picked Cate Blanchett over Sienna because he felt she could cope with the rigors of playing an outlaw’s woman.
“It wasn’t my call,” said Russell. “Actually, it’s more that I’m too old and fat! But Cate brings something else. The way we have changed the character, we really needed somebody who was going to be resilient in the face of all these things that are going on.
“And Cate is superb in this film. She was excellent to work with and a great partner in crime.”
Robin Hood hits theaters May 14, 2010.
Crowe, 45, recently revealed that he doesn’t wear tights in the flick.
“I don’t wear tights because according to our research they weren’t invented for another 300 years,” he said.
