Russell Crowe separates from wife Danielle Spencer after 9 years of marriage - report

russell-crowe-bafta-gi.jpg The Sydney Morning Herald reports Russell Crowe and wife Danielle Spencer are separating. The pair wed in April 2003, after starting a relationship 13 years prior on the set of "The Crossing."

The couple have been based in Sydney since their wedding, but Russell frequently makes waves stateside -- including being  rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard off the waters of Long Island in September.

Russell has had his fair share of Hollywood relationships, most notably a public romance -- and highly publicized breakup -- with Meg Ryan during some time off from his relationship with Danielle. Rumors surfaced earlier this year of a budding flirtation between Spencer and her "Dancing With the Stars" Australia partner, Damian Whitewood. But Crowe and Spencer quashed the reports with a marital PDA session in front of the paparazzi.

Russell is currently in the U.S. filming "Noah." He can be seen next in "Les "Miserables," with Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway.
