Russell Crowe on nudity in Noah and rocks in his bits

RUSSELL Crowe found stones falling out of the crevices of his body days after filming nude scenes for biblical epic 'Noah'.

The Hollywood star hits the big screen as the titular character in the biblical epic and days after shooting scenes on an Icelandic beach he found stones "falling out" from crevices in his body when he was getting dressed.

The 49-year-old actor has been quoted saying: "That was pretty much all day lying around naked and they have these little stones, right, it's kind of as the lava meets the sea and they get smoothed off and what have you... these stones get really round.

"It was like four days (after shooting the scene), you're still getting dressed in the morning and these little stones are falling out and it's like, 'Where has that been for four days?'"

Russell is thrilled 'Noah' can spark philosophical discussions which explore issue in the world we live in.

He previously explained: "You come out of this movie and you want to talk ... about our stewardship of the earth, our relationship to animals, what is spirituality, who am I in this world - all these fantastic subjects for conversation ... Art that can do that for people is a wonderful thing."
