Russell Crowe has admitted he regrets not enjoying more time with his children when they were growing up, saying it "worries me greatly that I didn't spend enough time with them".
The 56-year-old actor, who has two sons with ex-wife Danielle Spencer, said the Covid-19 pandemic has given him ''perspective'' on his relationship with the boys.
Speaking on The Kyle and Jackie O Show, he said: ''I look back, and I think I should have given more time [to my children].
"It's tricky. I have this big job, and my entire work life takes place overseas," he said.
''It worries me greatly that I didn't spend enough time with them."
''If you're on a big movie like Robin Hood and you're physically getting the crap beaten out of you every week, you come to the weekend, and all they [his sons] see of you is this lump on the couch.
''I know a lot of people have had hard times during this period, and I feel deeply for them, but my perspective, simply being able to stay at home, is such a privilege," he added.
The Oscar winning star admits while he can't change the past, he "can certainly work on having less distance" going forward.
''I can't cover the holes I made then, but I can certainly work on having less distance in the future.
"They're in a good place now, but going forward, I really feel like I've got to start working in Australia.''
