Oscar-winning actor Russell Crowe lost his way kayaking off New York's Long Island but was picked up by a Coast Guard boat and safely taken to shore, the US Coast Guard said.

The 48-year-old actor was kayaking with a friend on Saturday. They launched the kayak from Cold Spring Harbor on the Long Island Sound but lost their way as the sun went down. T

he Coast Guard said Crowe and his friend apparently made their way to Huntington Bay beach and called out to a boat on patrol.

Petty Officer Robert Swieciki said the two paddled over to the boat, got on board and hitched a lift back to Huntington Harbor.

Crowe is on Long Island filming new movie Noah in Oyster Bay.

He sent a Twitter message thanking the officers.
