That next project, initially called the "Untitled Cameron Crowe Project," became Almost Famous (2000), the semi-autobiographical story of an aspiring teenage rock journalist who is given the chance to follow an up-and-coming rock band as they tour 1970s America.The film, which featured a stellar ensemble cast that included Billy Crudup, Kate Hudson, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Patrick Fugit as Crowe's alter ego, was embraced enthusiastically by critics and audiences alike, furthering its writer/director's reputation as one of Hollywood's most reliable and entertaining filmmakers and winning the Best Film Comedy award at the 2000 Golden Globes.The film was not as well-received as Say Anything..., but it did feature strong ensemble acting from a cast that included Matt Dillon, Bridget Fonda, Campbell Scott, and Kyra Sedgwick.Jerry Maguire represented Crowe's first foray into exploration of more adult concerns, although its presentation of a young career hotshot who acts upon an internal moral crisis has resonance with his earlier work.When the time came to announce the winners of the 73rd Annual Academy Awards, Almost Famous was again victorious, with Crowe taking home the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.The following year Crowe would make his first venture into the land of remakes with Vanilla Sky.Born in Palm Springs, CA, but raised in San Diego, Crowe became a journalist at the age of 15, writing music reviews and articles for such major publications as Creem, Playboy, and Penthouse.A year later, he became a contributing editor for Rolling Stone and was later promoted to associate editor.
The newspaper also added that people who claim to be close to the couple are “convinced” an engagement is inevitable. Fans were simultaneously mourning and celebrating the news. Many other fans were crushed because they hoped to marry him...
According to a new book Crowe was a 'puffy' pain while making the 2000 film in which he won an Oscar for Best Actor.
He twice walked off the set and threw a tantrum before filming the climatic scene when he utters the film's most memorable line 'And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next.'Author Nicole La Porte claims Crowe, 46, thought the line was ridiculous and had to be persuaded to film the scene.
The film became something of a legend, not only because of its realistic, sensitive, and funny portrayal of teenage travails, but also for launching the careers of some of Hollywood's brightest stars, notably Sean Penn and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
Crowe's screenplay netted him a nomination for a Best Screen Adaptation award from the Writers Guild of America.
