Moody movie star Russell Crowe has upset another journalist with a foul mouthed tirade during live radio interview.

The Gladiator actor was appearing on an Australian programme when presenter TRACY BARTRAM accidentally asked Russell a question he'd just answered.

Russell snapped, "Sorry for interrupting your life and coming on your radio station."

The embarrassed presenter apologised, blaming her error on a distraction, before Russell's rudeness got the better of him again.

And this time he swore live on air, asking, "What the f*** are you talking about, lady?'"

Describing the incident, Tracy says, "It was awful. It was a really awful moment. I felt really stupid.

"It really upset me, but I don't think it was appropriate for him to swear on air. It was a shock actually. I was completely gobsmacked."
