Cast of 'Noah' attends papal audience, claims meeting with Pontiff

Catholic World News - March 19, 2014

Members of the cast of the film Noah claimed that they had met with Pope Francis on March 19, after attending the Pope’s regular weekly public audience.

Russell Crowe, the star of the film, had told fans that he was hoping to meet with the Pontiff during a visit to Rome. Paramount Pictures had reportedly pushed for a private meeting with Pope Francis, and even claimed that a meeting had been scheduled and then cancelled. But Vatican officials denied that those reports. “The meeting has never been on the program,” said Father Federico Lombardi, the director of the Vatican press office.
