Russell CroweSurly Aussie actor Russell Crowe, who's getting as well known for his temper tantrums and brawls as he is for his acting talent, was actually spotted smiling and laughing  Saturday night while he was hosting the Australian Film industry awards, Down Under's equivalent of the Oscars.

Crowe walked onstage carrying a telephone, and joked about throwing a telephone at a New York hotel employee, an incident that could have prevented him from working in the United States and sent him to prison for up to seven years. Crowe warned nominees not to get too long-winded, with a threatening wave of the phone. "If...you do get up here and go on too long," Crowe joked (kind of), "then 'hello' to my little friend."
