Russell Crowe`s children find Harrison For better

London: He has played a Roman hero in `Gladiator` and a police officer in `LA Confidential` but actor Russell Crowe is yet to impress his children with his acting skills.

The Australian star says his children Charlie, six and Tennyson, three, find `Indiana Jones` star Harrison Ford a better actor than their father, Contactmusic reported.

The actor, who will be seen playing the middle ages hero `Robin Hood` in Ridley Scott`s period film, says,"They are deeply entranced in `Indiana Jones` at the moment. They think Harrison Ford is a significantly better actor than their father and they really like to meet him," said the actor.

Crowe, however, is hopeful that things will change for better.

"They are interested in `Robin Hood` and when the bows and arrows come out they get pretty excited but at the moment their obsession is the work, life and times of Dr Indiana
Jones," he said. The Australian actor also claims he had a hard time getting his sons to sit through a screening of `Robin Hood`.

"I tried to get them to see Robin Hood on a day that they were terribly jet lagged so we didn`t get too far into it but one of these days we`ll do it.

Crowe, 46, said the children seemed bored while watching the epic.

"I thought, I`ll take them to this as the first one of my films they`ll see. They were so excited, and they got to the screening room and were going crazy. Five minutes into the film, my oldest boy, Charlie, is like, `Oh dad, can we go home now?` And my little one keeps calling out, `Dad, when are you going to get a horse?`," said Crowe.
