The truth is out there — and so is he.
“Gladiator” actor Russell Crowe claimed via Twitter to have recorded UFOs flying over Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens earlier this week. And he’s got the videos to prove it.
“A friend and I set camera to capture fruit bats rising from Botanic Gardens. This was a big surprise,” Crowe wrote, according to a story at News.com.au. He then sent his more than 800,000 followers a link to the video, which shows oddly shaped lights apparently hovering over the gardens.
While Crowe defended the UFO footage — “The camera is on a balcony – not behind glass,” he reportedly wrote — YouTube commenters were less willing to label it proof of extraterrestrial life.
“It could have been more believable without all the editing. Just raw footage would have made it viral. Anyways, loved you in Les Mis.”
