RUSSELL CROWE refuses to let his romance with MEG RYAN stop him enjoying the company of his former love.
The GLADIATOR hunk hooked up with ex-love DANIELLE SPENCER for a cosy dinner during his Christmas holiday back in Australia - while Meg was thousands of miles away in the exclusive ski resort of Aspen, Colorado in America.
Crowe dated the blonde former HOME AND AWAY soap opera star for several years in the early Nineties, before finding fame in Hollywood. And the New Zealand-born actor clearly retains a soft spot for his old flame, calling regularly from the states. (KW/WNTST)
