Russell Crowe Can't Wait To Get Home: I Will 'Try To Bring My Family Back Together'

After a whirlwind year of filming (he's starring in five films coming out within the next year), Russell Crowe - who is reportedly estranged from wife Danielle Spencer - wants to make things right with his family.

"As soon as I finish this job & can get home, my priority is to try to bring my family back together," the "Les Miserables" star, who is currently shooting "A Winter's Tale" in New York, Tweeted earlier this week.

The actor also slammed reports claiming he'd been spotted getting cozy with Billy Joel's ex-wife Katie Lee, writing, "These latest reports are false & cruel."

Russell, who has two sons with Danielle (the family resides in Australia), took to Twitter again on Saturday, counting down the days until he can get back to his family, and letting followers know he won't put up with negative comments.

"I have 3 shooting days to go, then the journey home begins," he wrote. "Blocked quite a few people this morning, spreaders of hate, stupidity and bs gone."

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, reports of the longtime couple's split surfaced in October.

Russell's incredibly full film schedule was said to be part of the reason for the reported separation, according to The Sydney Morning Herald, as the Oscar-winning actor had six films slated for release within a one-year span, including "Man with the Iron Fists," "Les Miserables," "Broken City," "Man of Steel," "Noah," and "Winter's Tale."

Russell and Danielle met 22 years ago on the set of "The Crossing," and dated, but eventually broke up.

The couple reconciled years later, and married in a chapel built especially for Danielle in 2003.
