Some people get by with a little help from their friends, whereas others get by with a little help from the U.S. Coast Guard.
Oscar winner Russell Crowe definitely got some assistance from the Coast Guard this weekend during a kayaking trip off the coast of Long Island, N.Y. While filming Noah, the Australian and a friend decided to start kayaking.
After the sun started setting he and his friend apparently got lost, per The Associated Press. A Coast Guard vessel heard the actor at around 10 p.m. and Russell and pal paddled over.
Russell and his friend were wearing life vests. "It wasn't really a rescue. Really, more of just giving someone a lift," said a Coast Guard officer.
Okay, so even if it was a lift, Russell sounded pretty darn grateful. He Tweeted, "Thanks to Seth and the boys from the US Coast Guard for guiding the way...4 hrs 30 mins, 7m(11.2km)."
Then he added, "We knew where exactly where we were, paddling around from csh into wind, we ran out of day. Grand adventure eh."
