Russell Crowe Remembers Sinéad O’Connor In Heartfelt Personal Story: ‘What An Amazing Woman’

Russell Crowe is remembering Sinéad O’Connor with a heartfelt story. The 59-year-old actor took to Twitter on Wednesday to share a personal memory of the late singer, who died at 56 on Wednesday. “Last year, working in Ireland, having a pint in the cold outside a Dalkey pub with some new friends, a woman with purpose strode past us. Puffy parker zipped to the nape and her bowed head covered in a scarf. One of my new friends muttered an exclamation, jumped up and pursued the woman…There under streetlights with mist on my breath, I met Sinéad. She looked in my eyes, and uttered with disarming softness ‘oh, it’s you Russell,'” the actor wrote. Russell continued the story, revealing what made her “an amazing woman.” Sinéad’s family confirmed the news of her death in a statement to Irish and British Media. “It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Sinéad. Her family and friends are devastated and have requested privacy at this very difficult time,” they said.
