Kylie Minogue, Russell Crowe

Russell Crowe might play the main character in a Bible-based film, but the Noah star is certainly no angel!

On a recent episode of The Graham Norton Show, Crowe playfully flirted up a storm with former Neighbours co-star Kylie Minogue.

As Minogue, 45, and fellow guest Cameron Diaz, 41, discussed their love lives, Crowe, 50, interjected, making sure the ladies knew he, too, was single.

And when Norton showed a picture of a wax figure depicting Minogue in a rather compromising position, Crowe piped in jokingly,  "I have to say though, the [waxwork] of you kneeling down is kind of attractive. If they're not using that one anymore..."

Diaz couldn't hide her shock at the actor's forward advance toward her pal, but Minogue didn't seem too bothered. When Norton pointed out the initials of her new album Kiss Me Once are similar to those in her name, she cheekily suggested what word it would stand for, saying, "I've had a little chat with Russ, we've had a head-to-head about this, and we've decided it stands for Kylie Minogue's orgasm."

"You've just heard Kylie Minogue say the word orgasm," Crowe said proudly.

But the New Zealand-born actor isn't just a flirt—family is the most important thing to him. "I also have the responsibility of my two boys [Tennyson, 7, and Charles, 10], and I don't want them thinking anything other than their mum [Danielle Spencer] is the most perfect woman in the world," he said.

The father of two, who split from Spencer after nine years of marriage in 2012, doesn't want to dive into anything new too quickly. either. "I don't want them to see me in another relationship with someone who is not their mother.," he said. "It's not something I need or want them to have to deal with at the moment."

How considerate. Not to worry, though, Ms. Minogue—just hang tight!
