Denzel Washington vs. Russell Crowe

How very Jen and Angelina of them. Just like Aniston vs. Jolie on the new issue of W, Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe go head-to-head in two different Entertainment Weekly covers, promoting their new movie, American Gangster. But unlike Jen and Angie, these two actually seem to like each other.

Russell took time out from discussing Leonardo DiCaprio's virginity to share this story of his first meeting with Denzel, at an audition, 12 years ago: "I had to be really rabid and weird, and on the first take, I'm working myself up and a bit of spit comes out of my mouth...and it weaves itself neatly through the fencing and lands right on Denzel's lip. A glob of white f*ucking spit just sitting right there. And I'm going, 'Oh man, that's f*cked. I'm doing my audition, and I spit on Denzel Washington. I might as well just go home and hang myself right now.' And the thing is, he just kept on doing the scene, and at the end, they said 'Cut,' and he's looking at me, and the spit's still sitting there and he goes [wiping his mouth slowly], 'I love the taste of warm saliva in the morning.' "

I only have two questions after reading that interesting tidbit: 1) Does Russell kiss his mother with that mouth? 2) Which cover do you think Brad Pitt will buy?
