Russell Crowe, tweeter? That was one question Matt Lauer had during Monday's interview with the actor on TODAY. "I’m in this place at the moment where I’m basically being Dad," said the man behind @RussellCrowe. "I’m at home, my wife’s doing gigs and stuff with her band, she’s promoting a record ('Calling all Magicians'). I take the boys to school in the morning, I pick them up in the afternoon, and then there’s the bedtime, and stories ... I find there’s not a long length of time to get involved with anything creative," Crowe said. A recent tweet revealed that Crowe had given up two habits: "Blue Sky in NYC today. Haven't slept a wink. It'll make the interviews interesting, no cigs, no coffee and no sleep. Good luck Journalists," it read. Lauer joked, "Do you realize there was a time when someone like me wouldn’t sit across from you while you’re giving up cigarettes and coffee at the same time?" "I got cranky for some time," Crowe conceded. You watch the entire interview below.
