Man of Steel star Russell Crowe made a splash with his boys Charlie, 9, and Tennyson, nearly 7, in Los Angeles, Calif. on Friday (June 28). While playing in the pool with his sons, the doting daddy was all smiles on the sunny afternoon.
The night before, Russell and Danielle Spencer – who have only vaguely addressed rumors that they separated last fall – spent a relaxing evening together with their sons and some friends at the Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills.
According to Us Weekly, the estranged couple sat with a group of about 10 people outside in the restaurant’s courtyard, and “were both talking to their kids and being attentive.”
The insider added: “Russell and Danielle were sitting next to each other and seemed to get along well — but were never affectionate.”
Later that evening after the children had left the table, the pair continued to chat with another couple in a “loud conversation,” with Russell who was “smoking a cigarette and talking very animatedly, [seemingly] about politics.”
The Oscar-winning actor, 49, and musician, 44, reportedly split after a nine-year marriage.
Russell vaguely addressed the reports via social media. “As soon as I finish this job and can get home, my priority is to try to bring my family back together,” Russell wrote on Twitter in December, referring to shooting Winter’s Tale in New York City and traveling to promote Les Miserables. “I need to go home & be with my children. Cannot believe how f–ked up my schedule has become this year.”
And Danielle wrote a message to her fans via Facebook.
“Hi Everyone! I’m sorry I haven’t visited here for a while, things have been keeping me somewhat busy of late,” she wrote. “I just wanted to thank you all for bearing with me and also for your messages of support, it means a lot to me.”View Slideshow »»
