Roth: Russell Crowe's a sweetie!

Eli Roth says Russell Crowe is a 'sweet guy'

Russell Crowe is a "sweet" guy, Eli Roth has revealed.

The Last Exorcism producer - who picked up the Best Horror award at the Jameson Empire Awards - saw a different side to the Oscar-winning actor, who has been arrested on assault charges and rumoured to have a temper, on their new film, The Man With The Iron Fist.

"Nobody believes this but I say Russell Crowe is an absolute sweetie pie," Eli said.

"I said, Russell, I am going to tell people what a nice guy you are. He said, 'You can tell people but no one will believe it'. He was fantastic, he was great and really funny and really cool. It's like I am outing him as a really sweet and easy-going guy. He was hilarious, and we had such a fun time making the movie."

The martial arts film, which also stars Lucy Liu and Pam Grier, is set for release later this year.

"I just wrapped The Man With The Iron Fist that I co-wrote with RZA from Wu-Tang Clan," continued Eli.

"I produced it with the same person from The Last Exorcism and RZA directed it."
