Russell Crowe convinced his son would grow up to be an actor

The Oscar winning actor realised it after he saw his son Charlie bringing a press junket to a stop by telling jokes and performing magic tricks.

While the actor was promoting his new film ‘American Gangster’ with co-star Denzel Washington, young Charlie decided to grab the microphone and Crowe was unable to stop him.

“I was doing a press conference… and I had Charlie with me. He wanted to come in with me to… the radio press conference, so I thought, ‘That’ll be all right. I’ll just bring him in there, and sit him on my knee,’ Contactmusic quoted Crowe, as saying.

“There’s four microphones in there, two facing Denzel and two facing me. I’ve got Charlie on my lap and the very first thing he does is lean over and twist one of the microphones over to him.

“So I twisted it back and he gave me a look like, ‘Buddy!’ So he twists it back and I said, ‘Look, we’ve talked about this. You can’t be noisy and stuff, it’s an interview.’ He says, ‘Daddy, I would like to tell a joke.’

“And then he proceeded, in front of these 30 journalists, to tell his favourite joke at the moment, which is: ‘How do you stop a baby from crawling? You pull off its arms and legs.’

“He went through a couple more jokes and stuff and I said, ‘We’ve actually got to get on with the interview, so why don’t you just sit there quietly.’

“And he’s a very honest kid and he said, ‘Dad, I would rather do my tricks and make lots of noise.’ (I said), ‘OK, You go in the corridor for a minute then,’” he added. (ANI)
