Hollywood star Russell Crowe has outed himself as an avid fan of the British Royal Family.

While many in his adopted country Australia campaign for independence from the monarchy, New Zealand-born Crowe insists he fully supports QUEEN ELIZABETH II.

The Master And Commander: THE FAR SIDE OF THE WORLD actor tells British talk show host Jonathan Ross, on a show due to be aired on Friday (28NOV03), "When it comes down to it, I'm a staunch monarchist. Elizabeth and her family should be respected. That's the bottom line."
