Russell Crowe: master, commander, tweeter
Could it be that Russell Crowe -- the same irate man who walked out during a live BBC radio interview earlier this year, reportedly threatened to kill a producer with his bare hands and once beaned a hotel clerk with a phone -- has been misunderstood? Is he actually just an average dude who enjoys American college football and joshing with his fans?
It turns out that Crowe -- who has always given off a bit of a "don't come near me" vibe -- has not only been (as we knew) somewhat tamed by wife Danielle Spencer and his two sons, but now spends a significant portion of his day on Twitter responding to questions from fans, boasting about his love of Michigan football and explaining his shorthand. For instance, "LLD" apparently stands for "Little Lie Down." Which is what he did Monday in Los Angeles before meeting with someone from the L.A. Times.
Crowe follows a hodge-podge of other tweeters, including Anne Rice, Dita Von Teese, the Dalai Lama, Wu Tanger RZA and Ron Howard (his director for both "A Beautiful Mind" and "Cinderella Man").
The heretofore extremely private actor also spends a fair amount of time giving us glimpses of his homelife. Over the weekend, he described Halloween in the Crowe household:
The voting around here (I apparently don't get a vote) is for Star Wars. At least I can be thankful that it's not Sponge Bob Square Pants.
Charlie says " Dad you should be Obi Wan Kenobi because of your beard, but we don't have that costume. Lucky for you Darth Vader has a mask"
Personally, I think he'd make a fabulous Han Solo. But maybe I should tweet that?
