Actor Russell Crowe flashed a bit of his infamous hot temper during a recent BBC radio interview, HuffingtonPost.com reports.

In Cannes to promote his new medieval action flick, "Robin Hood," Crowe first became irritated with a British reporter who asked the actor about his accent in the film, claiming it sounded Irish.

Crowe responded tersely, "You've got dead ears, mate, seriously dead ears if you think there's an Irish accent."

When the reporter then asked if it was more northern English, Crowe replied, "No, I was going for an Italian, yeah. Missed it? F**k me. Anyway."

Obviously, the poor journalist had completely lost Crowe by then, so when he began asking about a particular "Gladiator" quote, the actor just got up and walked out, saying, "I don't get the Irish thing by the way."
