!!Tropes associated with Crowe:
* ButtMonkey: His singing in ''Film/LesMiserables2012'' has made him the butt of jokes from everyone from Website/TheOnion to co-star Creator/SachaBaronCohen at the Golden Globes (somewhat unfair, as Crowe threw himself into the role while Cogent and his onscreen wife were known on set for not having learnt their lines). [[LoveItOrHateIt The quality of his vocal performance is contested.]] Before that, his HairTriggerTemper served as the punchline for countless late-night comedians.
* DeadpanSnarker: His Twitter posts show him as a snarker. How deadpan he is remains a mystery.
* FakeAmerican: Many of his famous roles.
* FakeBrit: ''A Good Year'', ''Film/MasterAndCommander'', ''Robin Hood''.
* HamAndCheese: His role in ''Film/TheManWithTheIronFists'', where he plays a hedonistic LovableRogue named Jack Knife. He's clearly having a lot of fun with the part.
* ProductionPosse: Ever since ''Film/{{Gladiator}}'', he's been working with Creator/RidleyScott in five movies so far.
* PromotedFanboy: He once had a song entitled "I Just Want To Be Like Marlon Brando" and went on to play Brando's role as Jor-El in ''Film/ManOfSteel''.
* RomanceOnTheSet: He had an affair with Meg Ryan back in 2000 when they met working on a movie together. She was married to Creator/DennisQuaid at the time.
