Russell Crowe Told 'Get Out Of My Face' By Son In Moment Caught On Live TV During NRL Match

Russell Crowe is not known for his moderate temperament.

And the Antipodean has had his own moments of dishing it out, once being brought to book for throwing a telephone at a hotel worker, and allegedly roughing up a fellow BAFTA guest.

But it seems there's one person who can put the Oscar-winner firmly in his place - his son.

10-year-old Charles told Crowe firmly where to go in a moment caught on live television, while the pair were watching a NRL match between South Sydney Rabbitohs, which Crowe co-owns, and Manly Sea Eagles in Sydney this week.

Crowe didn't seem too put out, proving family life may have mellowed the actor somewhat.

And there was a happy outcome to the evening, with the pair's team walking off with a 40-24 victory.
