However, the 'Robin Hood' actor admits they may end up in Hollywood as his younger son Tennyson is already showing signs of his star quality.
Hollywood actor Russell Crowe hopes his sons don't grow up wanting to be actors, but he fears the boys will inevitably follow him into showbusiness. The Oscar-winner has two children with his singer wife Danielle Spencer - Charlie, six, and Tennyson, three.
Crowe is adamant he won't push them into acting as they grow up, because he would prefer them to tackle different professions - but he's convinced they will probably end up in Hollywood as they will want to emulate their famous father.
He tells Britain's Sunday Mirror, "Lord, I hope they don't want to be actors like me. But I guess it's only natural if they do. And if it's in their blood when they grow up, then fine. I don't want to force them into it, or put them in a situation where they feel they have to do it because they think that's how they are going to get daddy's approval."
And Crowe concedes his younger son Tennyson is already showing signs of his star quality, adding, "Tennyson does have that natural flash in his eyes."
