Front Row host Mark Lawson said that there were "hints" of some Irish in the accent the native New Zealander adopted for Robin Hood, and Crowe responded, "Bollocks," reports the Daily Mail.

Crowe has been embroiled in similar controversies before. Once when he threw a telephone at a hotel employee and then for ranting at a BBC producer who had cut short part of his award acceptance speech at the Baftas.
