Russell Crowe and a friend got into a bind while adventuring in kayaks over the Labor Day weekend — and unlike the semi-regular hoaxes that have the "Gladiator" star running afoul of adventure, usually in the mountains of Austria, this story's actually true.
Crowe and trainer buddy Chris Feather rented two one-man kayaks out of Cold Spring Harbor, according to WPIX. Alas, they didn't make it all the way to their destination before the sun went down and decided to beach in Huntington Harbor, the U.S. Coast Guard said.
But while the two were definitely in a fix, they were not in fact lost, the actor pointed out Sunday via Twitter.
"not lost,we knew where exactly where we were, paddling around from csh into wind, we ran out of day," said Crowe, who regularly logs his fitness efforts on Twitter. "Grand adventure eh @chris_feather?"
