Bettany Defends Crowe
British actor PAUL BETTANY has defended his A BEAUTIFUL MIND co-star RUSSELL CROWE, insisting his notorious temper is merely a sign he is a "real human".
The star was horrified by the backlash following Crowe's November (05) conviction of third-degree assault against Mercer Hotel employee NESTOR ESTRADA.
Bettany says, "He's a movie star in a time of very asinine pretty boys. He's not that.
"People sense when they watch him on-screen that he's a real human being.
"And then they're surprised when he does human things."
