Russell Crowe Rescued by U.S. Coast Guard?
Even the manliest of men need a little help sometimes; even the great Russell Crowe. The 48-year-old actor was kayaking with a friend this past weekend. Russell and his friend left from Cold Spring Harbor on Saturday afternoon on the Long Island Sound. Apparently, they were out a little too long and it started to get dark on them. As the darkness set in, Russell and his buddy ended up getting lost — they ended up having to head towards the shore in Huntington Bay, 10 miles east from where they had left.
The U.S. Coast Guard happened to be patrolling the area and heard Crowe calling out for help from the shore at around 10 p.m.
“He just needed a little bit of help; he just got a little lost. It wasn’t really a rescue, more of just giving someone a lift.” Officer Robert Swieciki said.
Swieciki said that he didn’t even recognize the star, and wanted to make it clear that no one was injured. He also stated that both men were wearing life vests. Russell Crowe was extremely grateful and friendly during the boat ride back home. He also posted this message to Twitter early Sunday morning…
“Thanks to Seth and the boys from the US Coast Guard for guiding the way…4hrs 30 mins, 7m(11.2km)”
Bros helping bros! Is there anything better than that? I’m glad it happened to Russell Crowe and not me. I would have been freaking out, Tom Hanks style. I would have started talking to inanimate objects and yelling out for my mommy. I lack of all the great qualities of being a man; I blame my dad for never being around.
