Russell Crowe and his wife of nine years, Danielle Spencer, have separated, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. The split is reportedly amicable, and Spencer plans to stay in Sydney with the couple’s two sons while Crowe focuses on his film work. They met 22 years ago on the set of “the Crossing” but did not wed until 2003. Crowe is currently in New York filming “Noah,” in which he plays the biblical ark-builder. His rep could not be reached for comment.

If you’re looking to get high, Brad Pitt can hook you up. “It’s certainly true that I could probably land in any city, in any state, and get you whatever you wanted. I could find anything you’re looking for, give me 24 hours or so,” Pitt said, criticizing the U.S. war on drugs while introducing a screening of “the House I Live In,” a documentary about about drugs in America, according to Us Weekly. “And yet we still support this, I have to say, this charade called the drug war.” That being said, though, Pitt says he doesn’t currently imbibe himself. “My drug days are long since past,” he admits.

Lindsay Lohan back in Los Angeles and “at ease” after a tumultuous trip to New York that culminated with police intervening in an argument between the actress and her mother, according to People magazine. She even hit up an old haunt, the Chateau Marmont, despite being on the outs with management earlier this year. “Lindsay was very talkative and led much of the conversation,” the source says. “The group shared hot tea and late night salads. Lindsay definitely seemed at ease and in high spirits as they enjoyed a low-key night.”

Becoming famous has made Kristen Stewart become afraid for her life, she admits in a new e-book called “Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner — In Their Own Words” compiled by Talia Soghomonian. “Nowadays it’s harder because everyone is on Facebook and everyone knows where you are all the time, and everyone’s twittering,” Stewart says. “Like I’m going to die because somebody is going to say where I am and somebody is going to kill me. Someone’s going to twitter my location and then it’s going to be like, boom.”

Susan Sarandon is a well-respected, Oscar-winning actress, but she didn’t always have it so good. In fact, Sarandon admits that early in her career she was even exploited in a “casting couch” experience. “It was not successful — for either of us. I just went into a room, and a guy practically threw me on the desk,” Sarandon tells Elle magazine. “It was my early days in New York, and it was really disgusting. It wasn’t like I gave it a second though, it was so badly done.” The actress declined to offer specifics on the role for which she was auditioning at the time.
