Crowe’s Nest

‘DO you know what Russell Crowe’s “greatest adventure“ is? Go on, have a guess.

‘Can I read my poem now?’

Russell might not like what you say and beat you to within an inch of your life, but that’s just his muse getting the better of him. Nothing personal.

Still don’t fancy it, eh? Ok, we’ll tell you. Russell Crowe’s greatest adventure is not battling the waves on his new movie, Master And Commander, but embarking on the path to fatherhood.

As great adventures go, it’s not exactly up there with Sir Ranulph Fiennes’ seven-marathon challenge and the journey to the bottom of the sea, but it is impressive. We mean that, Russell, we really, really do.

So when’s the big day, Russ? “Fourteenth of January. I’m going to be there for the birth, but no videos – Dani doesn’t want any.”

And neither do the keepers of the Bafta flame, mate. Especially if they overlook your work and give the award for Best Birth Movie to Jade Goody or James Herriott.

If only Russell had kept the building that became their wedding chapel as a feed store, the video would have been a sure-fire Christmas hit.’
