Russell CroweNote to Russell Crowe: Next time you want to make a long distance call, maybe you should think twice about violently throwing your phone at the hotel clerk.

After being caught on camera, Russell Crowe is expected to dish out a crisp $10 million to squash this whole "reach out and hurt someone" fiasco, or else face a possible conviction that could land the hot-tempered actor in jail and force the cancellation of his work visa. If Crowe can't work here then Crowe can't act here, thus potentially ending his career for good.  The heartthrob is due back in court on September 14th to face charges -- unless the case is mysteriously dropped. So, until that time, you're still allowed to think Crowe is one of the sexiest men alive.  Phew.
