Russell Crowe has vowed not to leave Australia for the whole of 2010 - he's determined to take a break from work for the sake of his young family.
The Hollywood actor lives Down Under with his wife Danielle Spencer and their two sons, Charlie, six, and Tennyson, four.
Crowe fears he has been spending too much time abroad making movies, so he has promised to remain at home until the end of the year (10).
He says, "I don't want to get on a plane again this year. I want again to take a step back and put a normal rhythm back into the kids' lives
"I know what it is that turns me on in my job and I know if... something comes up that I want to do then I'm usually allowed to do it. I do the things that drive me from a pure place."
