Russell Crowe wants to be back with his family for Christmas, including his estranged wife Danielle Spencer.
This is the part where "I'll Be Home for Christmas" starts playing in your head. Take a moment.
According to Us Weekly, two months after widespread reports of a separation, the "Les Miserables" actor, 48, took to his Twitter earlier this week to address (in vague terms) the state of his nine-year marriage to Spencer.
"As soon as I finish this job and can get home, my priority is to try to bring my family back together," wrote the Oscar winner, who is currently shooting "Winter's Tale" in New York City with Colin Farrell and Will Smith.
Crowe was upset by a New York Post story claiming he's casually dating cookbook author and TV personality Katie Lee, the former wife of Billy Joel. "These latest reports are false and cruel," Crowe said.
Spencer also resurfaced on social media with a post to her fans on Facebook.
"Hi Everyone! I'm sorry i haven't visited here for a while, things have been keeping me somewhat busy of late," wrote Spencer, who shares sons Charles, 8, and Tennyson, 6, with the Crowe. Acknowledging the tumultuous several months, she added: "I just wanted to thank you all for bearing with me and also for your messages of support, it means a lot to me."
You're welcome. Glad to help.
Australia's Sydney Morning Herald first reported in October that the couple -- who met 22 years ago on a film set and got married in April 2003 -- separated, with Spencer staying behind with the boys in Australia.
"I need to go home & be with my children," Crowe tweeted two weeks ago as "Winter's Tale" began shooting. "Cannot believe how (expletive) up my schedule has become this year."
