Russell Crowe and Darren Aronofsky saw Pope Francis I in Vatican City on Wednesday.


The Oscar winner stars in Aronofsky’s upcoming movie Noah, which has spurred much debate in film and religious communities for its take on the biblical story.

The pair watched the Pope make his weekly address in St. Peter’s Square.

Crowe shared pictures on Twitter afterward, writing, “What a privilege, attended the Udienza with the holy father @Pontifex.”

“Ciao Roma, my love for your eternal light just grows deeper,” he added. “Thank you holy father @Pontifex for the blessing.”

And Aronofsky said in a statement, “Pope Francis’ comments on stewardship and our responsibility to the natural world are inspirational and of the upmost importance. When the opportunity to hear him speak in person on the anniversary of his first year in office I couldn’t miss the chance to listen and learn.”
