Shooting hoops! Russell Crowe looks unrecognisable with a bushy beard as he plays basketball with son Tennyson in Sydney

As an international movie star, Russell Crowe no doubt has a jam-packed schedule.

But the 53-year-old wasn't letting his successful career get in the way of family time.

On Monday, the Gladiator actor looked almost unrecognisable while shooting some hoops with his assistant, as well as his 11-year-old son Tennyson, at North Bondi basketball courts in Sydney.

The movie star, who was sporting a full bushy beard, looked ready for action with his attire, wearing a sleeveless black Zen Master top paired with Adidas shorts in a similar hue.

His assistant, who regularly accompanies Russell around the globe to lend a helping hand, was similarly dressed.

She opted for a black hoodie with the words 'Be Risky' emblazoned across the front and added black tights and sunglasses to complete the sporty ensemble.

A rugged-looking Russell was joined by his son Tennyson, who he shares with ex-wife Danielle Spencer. 

Russell rocked a very serious facial expression as he concentrated on trying to sink the shot while Tennyson was like a miniature version of his dad as he seamlessly pulled off a similar move.

The group were also snapped resting courtside as they sat on a wooden picnic table and chatted.
