Russell Crowe, Danielle Spencer Divorce? Actor Gets Back To Work After Announcing Split

If getting back to work is the best way to recover from a breakup, Oscar winner Russell Crowe is on the right track.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the actor is "throwing himself into work as a result of the devastating breakup" from his wife of nine years, actress Danielle Spencer. Crowe will reportedly continue to shoot the biblical epic, "Noah," in the U.S. while Spencer will stay in Sydney with the couple's sons, Charles, 8, and Tennyson, 6.

Crowe's busy film schedule -- which has reportedly kept him away from his family in Sydney for most of this year -- is also partially to blame for the split, according to the Herald Sun. The Aussie actor has six films coming out in the next 12 months, including "Man with the Iron Fists," "Broken City," "Man of Steel," "Les Miserables," "Noah" and "Winter’s Tale."

But Crowe, who took home an Academy Award for Best Actor in 2001 for "Gladiator," is hardly the first celebrity to rush back to work after a split. Click through the slideshow below for seven other stars who got back to business after separating from their spouses.
