Russell Crowe kept finding small stones in unwanted places after filming nude scenes for Noah.

The Hollywood star hits the big screen as the titular character in the biblical epic and days after shooting scenes on an Icelandic beach he found stones "falling out" from crevices in his body when he was getting dressed.

"That was pretty much all day lying around naked and they have these little stones, right, it's kind of as the lava meets the sea and they get smoothed off and what have you... these stones get really round," the 49-year-old said. "It was like four days (after shooting the scene), you're still getting dressed in the morning and these little stones are falling out and it's like, 'Where has that been for four days?'"

Crowe is thrilled Noah can spark philosophical discussions which explore issue in the world we live in.

"You come out of this movie and you want to talk ... about our stewardship of the earth, our relationship to animals, what is spirituality, who am I in this world - all these fantastic subjects for conversation ... Art that can do that for people is a wonderful thing," he said previously.
