Russell Crowe in Robin HoodRussell Crowe, no stranger to controversy, apparently shocked his English co-stars on the set of Robin Hood - when he threw a log at Prince Andrew during a royal visit.

The Queen's second eldest son - and fourth in line to the throne - was visiting the set of director Ridley Scott's new film in Windsor Great Park (part of the royal family's land and standing in for Sherwood Forest in the movie) as Crowe was rehearsing a fight scene that involved grabbing a camp fire log to fend off the enemy.

But Crowe, who plays Robin Hood, left his co-stars open-mouthed in surprise as the Aussie actor threw the log prop straight at the prince in order to prove, in Crowe's words, that the royal heir was a normal "bloke".
