The Gladiator star is currently shooting Les Miserables in the UK. On Wednesday (March 21), he got in touch with the staff at Virgin Active's Royal Berkshire Health & Racquets Club in Bracknell, England in the hopes of visiting for a workout and they invited him to come to the club.
However, once he got to the facility, he was denied entrance, prompting him to express his annoyance with the club.
"Hoity toity," Crowe wrote of the staff on Twitter.
The company later contacted Crowe to apologise for the treatment, after which he tweeted: "Nice email from pr lady @virginactiveuk. Think I'll just go where the regular folks hang GOLD's GYM in Camberly, friendly spot."
The next day (March 22), Crowe retracted his comments, apologising to Virgin Active in turn.
"Have realised that my tweet was unkind.Sorry to the thousands of dedicated,hard working staff that keep the UK active.Cheers," he wrote.
