Australian actor Russell Crowe and his wife Danielle Spencer have reportedly separated after nine years of marriage.

The couple were seen as recently as June looking happy together but reports out of Sydney today claim that the pair have decided to go their separate ways.
The 48-year-old Gladiator star and his estranged spouse have two children together; Charles, eight, and Tennyson, six.
But don't expect a nasty Hollywood fight folks as the pair are said to have split on amicable terms, according to The Sydney Morning Herald who broke the news on Sunday.
Russell is currently in the U.S. filming biblical epic movie Noah while Danielle is back in Oz with the kids.
The couple tend to spend a lot of time apart because of the Oscar-winner's career but they were still thought to have a strong marriage and the split has come as a surprise to those in the Australian showbiz circles.
Russell has been very busy of late and has six movies coming out in the next 12 months; Les Miserables, Broken City, Noah, Superman, Winter's Tale and Man With The Iron Fist.
The Hollywood bad boy and the woman who many claimed tamed him met 22 years ago on the set of The Crossing.
He went on to have a highly publicized relationship with Meg Ryan which fizzled out and he married Danielle three years later.
