Russell Crowe and Danielle Spencer
Russell Crowe hasn't ruled out a reconciliation with his estranged wife.
The 50-year-old actor split from Danielle Spencer, whom he began dating in 1989, in 2012 following nine years of marriage but he has admitted he still loves her and wouldn't shoot down the opportunity to rekindle their romance if the chance arose in the future.
Speaking to The Sunday Times newspaper, he said: "I've loved Danielle Spencer since 1989 - that's never going to change - and that's one of those things where I stare at her and go, 'How did this fail?' I still can't work it out, because my feelings for her have never changed."
Asked if there was a chance of a reconciliation, he added: "Once I commit to something, I stick with it, so you never know..."
The former lovers - who have sons Tennyson, eight, and Charles, 11, together - have remained amicable since their split and are regularly seen out together in public as a family.
Speaking to the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper about their complex relationship last year, Danielle said: "For me the most important thing is for my kids to see that their parents are still a parental unit and that we're still friends and that there is a lot of affection there, so it's the way to go.
"Obviously it's very challenging for him to deal with, and very challenging for me to deal with, but I guess in some ways keeping under the radar is good for my kids."
