New York (ES)  Russell Crowe had to be picked up by coastguards after getting lost kayaking. The 48-year-old actor and a friend were stranded on Saturday when they lost their way in the waters off New York’s Long Island and had to be ferried to a harbour 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.
