Unidentified Floating Object? One expert breaks down Russell Crowe's UFO sighting (YouTube)Oscar winning actor Russell Crowe has received a ton of attention, and ridicule, for posting a series of pictures he said show a UFO flying past his home in Sydney.
Some of the initial criticism suggested Crowe was simply trying to drum up attention for a new film project. And as CNET’s Chris Matyszczyk points out, the photos weren’t even taken by Crowe—they were shot by cinematographer Duane Manwiller—four years ago.
That contradicts claims made by Crowe himself, who says the images were shot while he and a friend were attempting to capture images of fruit bats.
Even Crowe’s manager seems baffled by the Twitter postings. When asked by the London Telegraph for an explanation, Grant Vandenberg said, “I have no idea.”
As it turns out, the real explanation turns out to be far less exciting than anyone thought.
