Russell Crowe seen One More Time

Russell Crowe has shown he has a sense of humour after sharing a fan's comment that he bares a striking resemblance to Britney Spears in Les Miserables.

The Gladiator star plays 19th-century policeman Marius Pontmercy in the Oscar-nominated musical, and his blue cap and uniform are very similar to the air hostess outfit worn by Britney in the video for her hit single Toxic.

Russell retweeted a fan's message which said: "hey @britneyspears did you see @russellcrowe in #lesMis maybe he is fan of you" along with pictures of the two in their matching uniforms.

The Australian hunk - who separated from his wife Danielle Spencer in October - recently used Twitter to deny rumours linking him to burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese.

Russell, 48, who has two young sons, is busy shooting hit latest movie in New York, but has tweeted: "As soon as I finish this job and can get home, my priority is to try to bring my family back together."
