russell-crowe-1405.jpgOscar winner Russell Crowe’s reps have denied the Orangutan comments on Sharon Stone and and have said that his comments were taken out of context. Earlier this year the Oscar winner, who starred alongside Stone in the 1995 western The Quick And The Dead, suggested the Basic Instinct II actress should change her name because she looks "like an orangutan."

He says, "A lot seems to have changed. When are you not you any more? At what point do you have to get a name change too? You can end up looking like a startled chimpanzee. The eyes are gone, the lips are like rubber tires - or more like an orangutan that has been kicked in the a**e."

Stone, 48, has always denied having cosmetic surgery and she sued leading Los Angeles surgeon Renato Calabria in 2004 after he appeared to tell an American magazine that he had given her a face-lift.
