I Got Lost Kayaking

Russell Crowe
was "Les Miserables" Saturday night -- when he got lost in the waters of Long Island while kayaking and had to be rescued (kind of) by the U.S. Coast Guard. 

The Academy-Award winning actor was out kayaking with a buddy in the Long Island Sound ... but as it got darker, they lost their way. 

Not knowing where to go, Crowe and his unnamed friend headed for shore -- problem is they ended up beached 10 miles away from where they started and were STRANDED. Crowe eventually saw a patrol boat from a distance and called out.

The 48-year-old actor paddled to the rescue boat -- which belonged to the U.S. Coast Guard -- and got a lift home, along with his friend.

The actor tweeted a few hours later -- "Thanks to Seth and the boys from the US Coast Guard for guiding the way ... 4 hrs 30 mins." The time indicated how long he was on the water.

If you've ever run into problems out at sea (I have), you know how awesome the U.S. Coast Guard is!

My experience was highly trained professionals. Thanks again guys!

Props to Russell! He's looking like that goofy university prof they've accidentally discovered in some remote, long forgotten and ill lit basement lab. Maybe that's what "a beautiful mind" can do for you?

Russell and his male friend were out on his dinghy and got lost? By any chance was his friend John Travolta?

We need a new Russel Crowe movie. A good one, not any Hollywood formulaic stuff, something worth watching, with Crowe in a role displaying his exceptional acting talent
