RUSSELL Crowe got lost kayaking over the weekend, and had to be picked up by coastguards.

The actor, 48, and his friend were left stranded Saturday when they lost their way in the waters off New York’s Long Island and had to be ferried to a harbor by a rescue boat.

US Coast Guard Petty Officer Robert Swieciki said the pair got lost as the sky darkened and beached their kayaks in Huntington Bay, almost 10 miles east from where they had set out.

The US Coast Guard was patrolling the area, and heard the ‘Noah’ star all out to them from the shore around 10pm and paddled over to the boat.
The coast guard said, “He just needed a little bit of help, he just got a little lost. It wasn’t really a rescue, really, more of just giving someone a lift.”

Russell — who was described as “grateful and friendly” — later thanked his rescuers on twitter.

He wrote, “Thanks to Seth and the boys from the US Coast Guard for guiding the way … 4 hrs 30 mins, 7m. (sic)”

Recent reports claimed Russell and Hugh Jackmanare at war!

According to a new report, the actor having been fighting like catty tween girls while shooting the new Les Miserables movie.

“They refuse to be in the same room – trying to get them to promote a film together is a nightmare,” a source tells Star magazine.

“They’ve known each other for a decade, but during this shoot, any shred of civility was thrown aside. They can’t stand each other, each calling the other an embarrassment to the profession.

“Russell sneers at Hugh’s musical-theater background. But Hugh says Russell embarrassed his country with his bad reputation in Hollywood.”

Costar Anne Hathaway has tried to mend fences, but the actors won’t budge.

“Producers hope she can convince them to come to a truce, but it’s not looking very promising,” said the source.
