March 20 (UPI) --
Giuliana Rancic said the meanest celebrity she's ever interviewed was Aussie actor Russell Crowe
, just one year into career with E!
In an appearance on Watch What Happens Live!, the E! News anchor said the Gladiator actor was her toughest job.
"He was so mean to me," Rancic said.
"I said, 'Are you excited to be here tonight? Your big movie premiere?' And he goes, 'I'm contractually obligated to be here. What's your next question?' " she said.
When she then asked him if he was excited to see all his friends, he was just as curt in his response.
"He goes, 'That's your second question?'" she said. "And he goes, '1, 2, you're through!' And walked away."
