Russell Crowe is not dead even though the headlines racing across the Internet read: Russell Crowe died.
The Robin Hood star is doing just fine, thank you, despite a few injuries. The Russell Crowe died rumors began with a radio show report that thanks to the Internet’s news-spreading-at-blazing-speed hit Google and now Russell Crowe is having to defend his living.
It all started with a South Florida radio show running a story that he died after Russell Crowe supposedly fell 50 feet while rock climbing.
Sure, a 50-foot drop is enough to cause death, but considering Crowe’s veracity for living, we’re sure he had a harness that helped slow his fall. The fall, or alleged fall, took place in Austria where he is filming his latest movie.
Austrian police aren’t saying much except that Crowe was filming a scene in the remote area of Kitzbuhel and fell off the side of a mountain.
Russell Crowe died is most likely another spoke in the wheel of celebrity death rumors that hit the Internet news sites every couple of weeks. Usually, they occur after a real celebrity death or two, such as last week’s Gary Coleman and Rue McClanahan deaths.
After all, it usually proves true that celebrities die in threes. Which, actually, has us wondering, who’s number three if not Crowe?
