The cast of Gladiator now - tragic deaths, Madonna link and Strictly stints
Hollywood films of all time.The epic Roman flick picked up five Oscars at the 73rd Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Costume Design, and Best Actor for leading man Russell Crowe.Gladiator follows Roman general Maximus Decimus Meridius (Crowe), who is forced into slavery and must fight for his freedom in legendary gladiator pits, where he faces the likes of armed thugs, chariots, and lions.He is betrayed by Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix) who murders his Roman emperor father and thwarts the elder's wish to leave the kingdom to Maximus by seizing the throne for himself.Crowe's character thus embarks on a terrifying tale of vengeance as he hopes to seek justice for his murdered wife and child.On the anniversary of the film's premiere, Daily Star has taken a look at where the star-studded cast went next.Russell played Roman general Maximus, who coins the famed line: "Are you not entertained?" in the gladiator arena.The titular role was actually meant to go to Mel Gibson, but luckily for Russell, his Hollywood peer turned it down.Crowe has gone on to bag a bucket-load of blockbuster film roles over the next 20 years, such as American Gangster (2007), biopic A Beautiful Mind (2001) and DC Superman flick Man of Steel (2013).The BAFTA-winning actor also showcased his vocal talents as Javert in Les Misérables, but one of his more surprising stints came during last year's series of Strictly Come Dancing.The actor spoke to contestants Tom Fletcher and pro dancer Amy Dowden via a video message after they danced to the Les Mis soundtrack, but it remains unclear whether he'll be putting on his dancing shoes anytime soon.Russell was married to fellow actor Danielle Spencer between 2003 and 2018, and they share their sons Charles
