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.

With all that money, you would think he could invest in a handheld GPS or a freaking compass.

The joke would have worked with "tres miserable". Maybe. But that would have taken a minimal effort by the writer...


And Russell Crowe looks like he has given up. On everything.


Couillons paresseux!

But, his beard was just moderately grey here and there last year, how comes now it's gone nearly full Santa is such a short time? Most person go grey gradually in years.
I don't think he's bald at all, it looks like this because his nonsense close buzzcut - long beard look, and so the flashing light made it's way through his short though thick hair.
He probably simply went for this look for a role in a movie or something, where they enhanced the grey in his beard and the like, complete with getting fat for the role, things american actors, Deniro docet, are not stranger to.
