From imdb in 2001:
"The 23-year-old beauty met Crowe on a plane flight and was with him for six months. She recalls, "We met on a plane from L.A. to London and we were both in first-class, and kept looking over at each other. Then as we were both Aussies, we were in the same customs line. I was reading The Fatal Shore and he asked me how I was enjoying it. And that was it." But despite reading in the newspaper she had been dumped for Meg Ryan, Baxter is not bitter. She says, "It was fun while it lasted, I guess."
Russell took Erica as his date to the premiere of Gladiator in Rome. He continued his tradition of staying friendly with his exes by attending model Erica`s wedding to Australian billionaire James Packer in June 2007.
