No, Russell Crowe Didn’t Fall Off a Mountain to His Death

Web, radio spread rumors that star had perished while filming in Kitzbuhel, Austria

After radio reports set off a swarm of rumors Thursday morning that Russell Crowe had died, his reps stepped forward to confirm that the "Robin Hood" star is alive and well.

In a barely grammatical statement, Seven Sided Cube reports the rumor: “In a South Florida radio show this morning, Russell Crowe reportedly fell 50 feet from a remote mountain while filming his latest movie in Kitzb├╝hel, Austria.” 

Global Associated News said the accident happened in the early morning hours.

However, Us Magazine’s intrepid staff tracked down a rep for the actor, who declared Crowe was doing just fine. However, Us did take the opportunity to link to its "Stars Gone Too Soon" feature.
