GLADIATOR (2000) star RUSSELL CROWE is on the prowl again - this time with BOOGIE NIGHTS (1997) actress HEATHER GRAHAM.
Heather, 30, helped the Australian OSCAR-winner get over his painful split from MEG RYAN - and turned to Crowe when she dumped her younger lover HEATH LEDGER.
Friends of the couple even believe that marriage could be on the cards, with one saying, "Heather's last few weeks with Russell have made her realise Heath was just a boy. Now she reckon's she's found her man. Russell is so virile and macho on the one hand, but also sensitive and caring. "
The couple have a great deal in common - including a love of dirty jokes - and Graham has even shown Russell how to relax through meditation. (SC/WNTST/KW)
