Here’s something we never expected to write EVER. Russell Crowe as Javert in Les Miserables is dressed exactly like Britney Spears did in the music video for, “Toxic.”
It’s weird and it’s also perfect. Russell’s blue double-breasted coat/policeman costume looks just like Britney’s flight-attendant costume from, “Toxic.”
Somehow this fashion moment went completely unnoticed, as a huge Les Mis AND vintage Britney fan, we're upset that we didn’t catch this immediately.
Thankfully, some random fan named Boris Prso made the connection and posted the above photo on Twitter, shouting out to both Mrs. Spears and Russell Crowe.
He wrote: “Hey @britneyspears did you see @russellcrowe in #lesMis maybe he is fan of you.”
Russell Crowe: I don’t know how I feel about my costume for Javert, there’s just something missing…
Costume Designer: You’re totally right…you know what it needs…
Russell Crowe/Costume Designer: MORE BRITNEY SPEARS!
Gotta love the Internet for pointing out the bizarre.
Russell retweeted the tweet, maybe he IS a Britney fan?
So far Britney hasn’t mentioned it on Twitter.
