While much has been made of Russell Crowe’s expanding waistline over recent months, the actor has been staying mum on whether or not it’s for an upcoming role.
But either way the 51-year-old appeared to be conscious of his less than Gladiator physique, opting to wear a loose-fitting black Ralph Lauren polo shirt in an effort to flatter his fuller figure.
The father-of-two completed his casual ensemble with tracksuit shorts and a pair of running shoes for an outing with sons Charlie, 11, and nine-year-old Tennyson in West Hollywood on Thursday.

Talking about the couples separation in April, Russell said he still feels ‘connected’ to the mother of their two children.
‘To this day everything I do is still connected to that,’ he said during an appearance on Late Night With Seth Myers.
‘We haven’t done the deal yet. I’m a very persistent person, you never know. I didn’t get married to get divorced.’
