Russell Crowe Reacts to John Nash's Death in a Car Crash

Russell Crowe is “stunned” following the death of mathematician John Nash, the man he played in the film A Beautiful Mind back in 2001.

“Stunned…my heart goes out to John & Alicia & family. An amazing partnership. Beautiful minds, beautiful hearts,” the 51-year-old actor tweeted after hearing the news.

Russell was nominated for an Oscar for playing John and Jennifer Connelly won the Oscar for her work as the mathematician’s wife Alicia, who was also killed in the car crash.

The Nashes were ejected from a taxi cab driving on the New Jersey Turnpike on Saturday (May 23). They were both killed in the crash and the driver is facing non-life threatening injuries.

John Nash Dead - 'A Beautiful Mind' Mathematician & Wife Killed in Car Crash

John Nash, the mathematician who was the subject of the Oscar-winning film A Beautiful Mind, is dead at 86 following a fatal car crash.

The Nobel Prize winner and his wife Alicia, 82, both were killed in the crash, which happened on Saturday (May 23) in New Jersey.

John and Alicia were riding in a taxi when the driver lost control while trying to pass a car in the center lane. The taxi crashed into a guard rail and the Nashes were ejected from the car.

“It doesn’t appear that they were wearing seatbets,” State Police Sgt. Gregory Williams told NJ.com.

John won the Nobel Prize for Economics in 1994 and he is known for his work in game theory. He and his wife become mental health care advocates after his struggle with paranoid schizophrenia, which is featured prominently in the film based on his life.

We send out our thoughts and condolences to the Nash family during this difficult time.

UPDATE: A Beautiful Mind star Russell Crowe has released a statement on the tragic deaths.

“[My husband] Ryan [Sweeting] loved my pink hair,” she added. “He’s really cute about that. He’s one of those people who is like, ‘You’re beautiful every which way.’ But he loved the pink. Every time he looked at me, he was like, ‘Oh, it’s like I got a new wifey in town!’”

Patrick Dempsey Is Set to Wave Green Flag at Indy 500

Patrick Dempsey shows off his style while out and about on Saturday (May 23) in Los Angeles.

Earlier in the week, the 49-year-old actor was spotted dropping by a bike shop and hanging out with a friend on two different occasions in Los Angeles.

It was recently announced that Patrick will be waving the green flag at the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday (May 24).

Patrick Dempsey is an ideal person to have in the flag stand for the start of ‘The Greatest Spectacle in Racing,’” Indianapolis Motor Speedway president J. Douglas Boles shared in a statement. “He’s a talented actor as well as an accomplished racecar driver, so I’m sure that when watches the field of 33 take the green, he’ll probably wish he could be mixing it up out there too. He also drove the Pace Car to start the race in 2007, so the flag stand will be the second unique location from which Patrick has witnessed the start of the Indy 500.”
