When one thinks of award winning actors, one should think almost immediately of Russell Crowe, but it’s not often his acting skills that spring to mind first when we hear his name, more his temperamental temper. This Aussie actor, who is actually from New Zealand, has won nearly thirty awards thus far in his career, which began when he was only a child.

Playing small parts on Australian television shows, his first film role was actually in an American movie, Blood Oath. Though he was acting alongside actors like Sharon Stone and Denzel Washington, it took seven years for him to score his first hit role. Playing a police officer in L.A. Confidential, Crowe became a household name in the US. After this, his career took off with movies including Gladiator, A Beautiful Mind, and Cinderella Man, which Crowe has admitted was one of his favourite roles to play.

It isn’t just Crowe’s impressive acting talent that has generated tabloid talk over the years, but his good looks and his hot temper as well. As far as his looks go, it is quite impressive that someone who didn’t bother to replace a knocked-out tooth for sixteen years has come to be such a heartthrob. In terms of Crowe’s temper, let’s just say he has had to apologize for several scuffles in the past, several of them publicly.

While he is known in the biz as being a tough guy, he claims to be just the opposite with his two sons. “I wouldn’t call myself strict,” he says of his relationship with his sons, claiming that his wife, Danielle Spencer, is the disciplinarian. Spencer, Crowe’s wife, is a musician who’s next CD is scheduled for release later this year.

Let’s get back to Crowe’s temper. Word on the street is that trying to film his upcoming film Robin Hood was quite a challenge. Aside from allegedly requesting that director Ridley Scott be removed from the film, he also is rumoured to have been banned from several pubs in the area surrounding the set. We won’t ruin the movie too much for you however, as we can’t wait to see it either.
