Crowe not dead

New York City radio station Z100 reported the Robin Hood star had passed away on Thursday morning (10Jun10), prompting a flurry of internet and radio reports speculating about the story.

But a spokesperson for the 46-year-old actor has acted quickly to dismiss the sick rumour.

Crowe is the latest in a string of stars who have fallen victim to similar reports – the most recent being Zach Braff, Johnny Depp, Billy Cosby and Kanye West.
