Aussie actor Russell Crowe is reportedly hooking up with his hot, young, co-star Samantha Barks.
Crowe, 48 and Barks, 22, have been tweeting one another about their work-outs. So are they simply fitness buddies or is this a romantic relationship?
Russell Crowe recently tweeted, “Work out with @samanthaBarks 4km walk, 30 mins elliptical, 4 min prone hold, shoulder routine, leta, bench, turkish stand”.
An insider that attended the Governors’ Ball following the Academy Awards said Crowe and Barks looking very cozy together.
The source said, “She was continually touching his sleeve, giggling and sitting in awe of his every word, and he was lapping up every moment.”
Russell separated from his wife Danielle Spencer last year. They have two children together, Charles and Tennyson.
Samantha Barks has previously spoken about how she hit it off with Crowe during the filming of “Les Miserables”.
Barks said, “We had the best time hanging out. It was awesome.”
Crowe tweeted compliments to the young actress before the Oscars, writing, “Last tech rehearsals for the Big O done…next up…showtime..@SamanthaBarks will be looking amazing tonight, worth tuning in just for that.”
Russell recently took to twitter on February 28, denying dating Natalie Imbruglia. Crowe tweeted, “I am not having an affair with nor am I dating Natalie Imbruglia. She has been a friend for years. No flirting, no whispers, total BULLSH*T”.
