Actor Russell Crowe surprised his 600,000 followers on Instagram Sunday when he sang a Christian hymn as he combed his beard.
Known for his roles in “Gladiator,” “A Beautiful Mind” and the 2012 musical “Les Misérables,” the Oscar Award-winning actor received praise from his fans who complemented his singing voice even while they were stunned by his new look.
“In the sweet by and by, we shall meet on that beautiful shore,” he sang repeatedly on Instagram as he combed through his bushy beard and hair.
The 1868 Christian hymn “Sweet By and By” became immensely popular in the 19th century. Since then, the song has been covered by noteworthy performers such as Elvis Presley, Louis Armstrong, Johnny Cash, Glen Campbell, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Loretta Lynn and Kenny Rogers, just to name a few. Now, Crowe can be loosely added to that list of popular performers.
The 54-year-old actor groomed his long hair as he casually sang the tune. “The actor prepares,” he captioned the video.
