Russell Crowe has revealed how important cuddling time with his son, 20-month-old Charlie, can be. The Australian actor has portrayed characters with gruff exteriors in his films and has had some notorious scrapes with the law, but in his personal life at home he appears to be made of softer stuff. In an interview with Britain’s Daily Telegraph newspaper he disclosed that "I cannot understand how in the past I managed to cope without getting cuddled this many times a day… I’m loving being a dad. Every single day of my life is significantly better, because I’m a father. I’ve got no complaints with my life at this point in time." Russell enjoys Charlie so much that he is planning to expand his family with wife Danielle Spencer.
