According to Russell Crowe, he struck up a relationship with former Michigan Wolverines coach Lloyd Carr after learning he used clips from Crowe's movies to inspire his team. And, a pep talk Crowe gave the Wolverines actually helped them defeat Notre Dame, he said on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated).

Crowe said he combined information given to him by his then-driver with a scene from 'Gladiator' to motivate the Wolverines. "So, I had a little chat with them and stuff and vibed them up," he said, "and they went out and they just kicked Notre Dame's butt."

"You know, it really hurts because, that game, I was in the Notre Dame locker room giving them my pep talk," said Regis Philbin, an admitted fan of Notre Dame.
