London: Actor Russell Crowe is helping Sam Worthington deal with fame after the blockbuster success of `Avatar`.
Worthington said that Crowe "really helped him out" when he started getting recognised and advised him to be respectful to his fans, reports contactmusic.com.
"We Aussie actors all know each other. I`ve asked Russell Crowe for advice...He`s really helped me out a lot," said Worthington.
"There`s no school that can tell you how to handle things like losing your anonymity. (Russell told me) to handle it with sensitivity. It`s hard to ask someone for their autograph. So if someone snubs me, why snub them? They`re braver than I am and deserve my respect," he added.
The 34-year-old admits that he has been the autograph hunter himself, asking for signatures from his favourite musicians.
He said: "I`ve asked Angry Anderson from Rose Tattoo and Angus Young from AC/DC."
