Russell Crowe Inspired Superman Son Cavill When He Was Just 16

Russell Crowe Superman Proof of Life

Russell Crowe was left stunned when he realised the young star playing his son in the new Superman movie, Man Of Steel, was the kid he offered acting advice to on the set of 2000 film Proof of Life.

British actor Henry Cavill was an extra playing rugby with Crowe's movie son, Merlin Hanbury-Tenison, in the film when he plucked up the courage to chat with his idol during a break.

Crowe tells U.S. Tv show Extra, "I was watching the kid who was playing my son... but there was a guy in that rugby match who was a dominant player. When he came over to talk to me, I gave him an ear purely because I liked watching him play.

Crowe Romance Rocked Ryan's World

Meg Ryan Proof of Life Russell Crowe

Meg Ryan was so upset by the way America turned on her during her 2000 romance with Proof of Life co-star Russell Crowe she needed to take a break from Hollywood to recover.

The actress had long been considered America's sweetheart until the break-up of her marriage to Dennis Quaid and her fling with Crowe turned her into public enemy number one - and she struggled to cope with the backlash.

She tells Parade magazine, "It's a very big surprise in life when you learn that not everyone is rooting for you. It's a very scary thing when you figure that out.

"I never imagined that worrying about what other people think of me would be a big part of my day. But, when you get that much negativity thrown at you, you go, 'Whew, I've got to cope with that.'

Crowe: 'Ryan's Explanation Came Too Late'

Russell Crowe Meg Ryan Dennis Quaid Proof of Life THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW

Russell Crowe has dimissed Meg Ryan's attempts to reverse his "home-wrecker" reputation, insisting she should have explained he wasn't to blame for the break-up of her marriage to Dennis Quaid years ago. Crowe and Ryan enjoyed a brief public romance after meeting on the set of Proof of Life in 2000 - leading to speculation the movie beauty had left her husband for the Oscar-winning GLADIATOR star. Despite the rumours, Quaid and Ryan have always insisted they split in a "mutual and amicable" way before the actress began her ill-fated relationship with Crowe. On THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW last month (MAR06), Ryan declared Crowe "wasn't a home-wrecker" and praised him for "(taking) a lot of heat for that, and he had a lot of grace". However, Crowe is unimpressed his gallant behaviour wasn't defended earlier, because it fuelled his reputation as a Hollywood badboy. He says, "It would have been nice to hear (her) say that a few years earlier. "A lot of the badboy thing and attendant pressures came from that time. Everything seeps out from that, and a mould grows over you, because of the implications. "(However ) it's really brave that she finally got around to talking about it in public... the horse has bolted and life has moved on."

Ryan Praises Crowe's Grace Under Fire

Meg Ryan Russell Crowe Dennis Quaid Proof of Life

Actress Meg Ryan has praised ex-lover Russell Crowe for keeping details of her broken marriage to Dennis Quaid to himself when he was accused of being a home-wrecker. Ryan insists her marriage was irreparably damaged long before she met and fell for Crowe on the set of Proof of Life, and he became a shoulder for her to cry on as she went through divorce proceedings. Looking back, Ryan feels she and Crowe were vilified by the media by seeming to have a romance that shattered her marriage, and she'll always be grateful to the actor for not telling the press what was really going on. She says, "It was a very unhealthy marriage and it was pretty much not a happening marriage for a very long time. I probably should have left much earlier. "I'm very sad that it all had to come apart in the way that it seemed to have; it was never about another man, it was only about my and Dennis' relationship just couldn't sustain. "He (Crowe) wasn't a home-wrecker and he took a lot of heat for that and he had a lot of grace, frankly, about not talking about things that he knew were going on in my marriage and I'll be very grateful for him for a long time for that. "Divorce is an impossibly hard transition in your life and he was there for a few months."
