PR blitz hit a snag over the weekend. Shortly after Sunday's British Academy Film Awards, where the Beautiful Mind
thesp won best actor, Crowe allegedly shoved and cursed a TV exec after his acceptance speech was edited out of the tape-delayed BBC broadcast. (Left on the cutting-room floor was Crowe's recital of a poem by Patrick Kavanagh
.) "Who on Earth had the... audacity to take out the best actor's poem?" Crowe allegedly yelled to award show producer Malcolm Gerrie
. "I'll make sure you never work in Hollywood." DreamWorks — the studio behind Mind
— reportedly apologized to Gerrie.
