Russell Crowe has embarked on an intense exercise regime

Russell Crowe has shed over a stone in less than a month on a strict diet and exercise regime.

The 47-year-old Gladiator star, who has reportedly been cast as Superman's biological father Jor-El in Zack Snyder's film Man of Steel, has begun a gluten-free diet and is putting himself through rigorous workouts in a bid to lose three stone in three-and-a-half months.

Russell tweeted: "There is a long way to go, one layer of tissue paper per day of effort and diet... it takes a long time."

He revealed 26 days into his 105 day regime that his weight has already dropped to 220 lbs this morning, and he started at 236.4 lbs.

The Oscar-winning actor has been putting himself through long bike rides, walking and swimming and hours of weight training and is also taking plenty of vitamin supplements to boost his energy.

But Russell also revealed he has been taking breaks from his regime to spend time with his sons, seven-year-old Charlie and five-year-old Tennyson.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Sagittarius:

Beware of spending beyond your means. Sticking to a budget will help you survive the festive season relatively unscathed. It will be easier than you think to let your grip on the purse strings slip especially as the big day draws near. Let Christmas be about loving, sharing and giving. Spend quality time preparing food, making decorations and playing games together. If you haven't sent all your cards or round robin emails give some thought about what you will be sharing with others this year.More
