Russell Crowe comes home to roots...

Reports were circulating yesterday that the actor Russell Crowe may secretly fly into Ireland tomorrow for a three-day break.

One source revealed that the actor was set to come in to do work on a future movie project in Ireland but this has not been confirmed.

What has been confirmed is that the 2002 Oscar loser does love Irish poetry and he does want to come to Ireland and go back to his Irish roots as soon as possible.

Speaking over the weekend to the Irish Sunday World newspaper Crowe said, "When I found out my family was originally from Ireland. I naturally wanted to know more about Ireland and that got me onto the poetry. I like the clarity and the emotiveness of Kavanagh. I like how he combines the kind of mystic into really clear, evocative work that can make you glad you are alive. I also like Yeats and someone told me I have got to read Seamus Heaney and Millington Synge and I will. If you want to get to know literature, Ireland's the place to be."

The actor also spoke about how he would love to perform in Ireland with his band Thirty Odd Foot of Grunts and how he wants to try our Guinness. "Yeah, I like to do one or two shows about the place. I want to hang out there for a little while, soon. Like a lot of Aussie's I'd like to go back to my roots for a while and get into the culture. I'll have some Guinness in its home setting and watch some football too."

Crowe also wanted to quell those rumors about the cutting of his speech and the punch up at the Bafta Awards. "The press went loony on it but they overdid the Kavanagh poem part. I mean it was only a one-minute fifty speech and they cut a minute out of it. The most important part of it was my thanking John and Alicia Nash for helping us to make a movie about their lives. The whole thing was exaggerated. There was no punch up."

Reports in the press also claim that Crowe may have lost out on this years Oscar for his role in A Beautiful Mind due to his actions at the BAFTA's.
