Crowe kidnap plot warrants FBI escort

The FBI is investigating a plot to kidnap "Gladiator" star Russell Crowe.

The agency became aware of the plot several weeks ago and has monitored the Australian-born actor during appearances in the United States, FBI spokeswoman Laura Bosley said Tuesday.

In January, agents donned tuxedos to escort Crowe to the Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, she added.

The FBI would not release any other details.
