In the Ron Howard-directed biopic Cinderella Man, Crowe finds himself another loyal wife: Renée Zellweger (at a Hollywood event May 22). The fellow Oscar winner plays Crowe's other half, Mae, in the film about Depression-era boxer Jim Braddock, who beat Max Baer for the heavyweight title in 1935 in one of history's greatest sports upsets.
