Actor Russell Crowe flashed a bit of his infamous hot temper during a recent BBC radio interview, HuffingtonPost.com reports.
In Cannes to promote his new medieval action flick, "Robin Hood," Crowe first became irritated with a British reporter who asked the actor about his accent in the film, claiming it sounded Irish.
"Robin Hood" star Russell Crowe feels pretty comfortable swinging a sword or shooting an arrow -- but singing with Beyoncé?
Crowe sat down with "Extra's" Terri Seymour to talk about his new medieval actioner -- and the rumor he might be starring in a remake of "A Star Is Born" with the R&B singer.
"Extra's" Terri Seymour caught up with Russell Crowe, star of the upcoming summer film "Robin Hood," and found out a few things audiences will be surprised to know.
Crowe tells Terri that he wanted to have his new star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as close to Marlon Brando's as possible. "I got voted down. His is way down there outside of a convenience store where I used to buy ice cream from and I wanted to be down there, but apparently, long ago, they filled up the area around him... I'm next to Anthony Hopkins... a pretty good spot and fine company."
Fun fact: the Oscar winner was a singer/songwriter back in the '80s, known as "Russ Le Roq." He recorded a song at 16 with the lyrics, "People say I'm crazy, but I don't know, just want to be Marlon, Marlon Brando."

Actors Russell Crowe and Elizabeth Banks were involved in a fender-bender on Wednesday while shooting their new film, "The Next Three Days."
Pittsburgh's WTAE Channel 4 reports the stars were filming a scene for the crime drama when their vehicle was "clipped" by a fire truck.
No one was injured and a witness told WTAE "everyone was laughing" about the accident. A firefighter says the whole incident was "rather embarrassing."
Crowe's rep tells "Extra" the accident was a "non-event."
Oscar winner Russell Crowe stars in the upcoming "Robin Hood" movie, but will the former "Gladiator" sport the famous green tights?!
Crowe tells "Extra's" Mario Lopez, "Tights were invented some 400, 500 years after we're setting the story." He jokes, "It's not tights but I do have a pretty nice, snazzy pair of leather pants with a rather large cod piece."
The 44-year-old stud is excited to start filming. He says, "I think it's an incredible opportunity to take an iconic story and make a fabulous contemporary action adventure romance movie." Crowe continues, "We have an incredible cast around us... We'll try to rob from the rich and give to the poor and kick some ass on the way."
When asked about his wife and two sons, Crowe beamed, saying, "I'm away from them now since I'm working, but they'll be here in about four weeks and I'm just counting down the days." The actor says his children have "changed his life and he's a "much better person."
It's no secret Crowe has singing chops -- and he's ready to use them on the big screen. When asked if he would ever star in a musical, Crowe answered, "If the right thing came along. There is a film that I'm looking at next year based on a book from an Australian writer, which has a character within the book that plays in a band."
Before "Robin Hood," Crowe takes on the big screen next month in the crime drama "State of Play."
