Russell Crowe Defends Britney Spears

Britney Spears has an unlikely ally in her public custody battle – Russell Crowe.

The Oscar winner told “Extra” that the paparazzi are at least partly responsible for Britney’s downfall.

“I don’t know her music, but we’re all sitting back and watching this group of people. Insane," he insisted. "And I think we should be taking a little more responsibility for it."

He added, “I know this is going to be like, ‘The gladiator protects the Mouseketeer!’”
