Russell Crowe is to be immortalised on Australian postage stamps in his new role as Robin Hood.

This means Aussie women nationwide will finally get the chance to lick Russell’s face! Mind you, fellas might find themselves in the same but (maybe) less-relished position.

Sydney-based Crowe produced and stars in Ridley Scott’s new Robin Hood, due to open at France’s Cannes Film Festival next week. Australia Post said the stamps were a celebration of Crowe’s achievements.

Happily for some keen Russell-lickers, this isn’t the first time the actor has appeared on a stamp. Last year he was part of a special set of stamps depicting Australian Oscar-winners.

If your mum’s in Australia, expect lots of letters this month!
