Russell Crowe ditches tights tradition
New Zealand-born actor Russell Crowe is to do away with tights in his latest film directed by British filmmaker Ridley Scott.

The Kiwi will star in an adaptation of the Robin Hood fable titled Nottingham, in which he is expected to play both the famous character as well as the Sheriff of Nottingham.

However, tights will not be on show as research taken out by the team confirmed that the legwear was not invented in the period, meaning there would be no hosiery-led heroics.

Reports have also suggested that the movie will be a new take on the tale, with the Sheriff being portrayed in a much better light.

Paul Newman, the Hollywood philanthropist who passed away last weekend, was cited by Russell Crowe as an inspiration for him.
