The reports of Russell Crowe’s death are greatly exaggerated.
Crowe’s rep issued a two-word statement Thursday, following Internet and radio reports that claimed the “Robin Hood” actor had fallen to his death from an Austrian mountaintop.
“Not true,” the rep said when contacted by Us Magazine.
New York City radio station Z100 reportedly sparked the Internet firestorm Thursday morning by announcing Crowe's death. As the macabre news spread online, Crowe was himself tweeting furious on soccer, E! News reported.
