Wedding bells for Russell Crowe
SYDNEY, Australia (Reuters) -- Hollywood star Russell Crowe plans to marry long-time Australian girlfriend Danielle Spencer on his birthday next month in a low-key ceremony on his remote property north of Sydney, an Australian newspaper said Sunday.
Crowe is expected to wed Spencer, a singer, on April 7 -- his 39th birthday -- in a small family chapel, the star's publicist Wendy Day told the Sunday Telegraph newspaper.
The New Zealand-born actor, who won an Oscar for best actor in "Gladiator" in 2001, popped the question at a Sydney restaurant in November after returning to Australia.
He said at the time he was trying to escape massive levels of stress.
"The wedding would be an intimate affair for family and friends," the newspaper quoted Day as saying.
The wedding would take place on Crowe's Nana Glen property near the coastal resort town of Coffs Harbour in northern New South Wales state, the report said.
