NEW YORK (CBS) Contrary to recent reports, actor Mark Ruffalo is not considered a threat to national security.
The 43-year-old "Shutter Island" and "The Kids are Alright" star was reported to have been placed on the terrorist watch list by Pennsylvania's Office of Homeland Security after promoting "Gasland," a documentary about the dangers of natural gas drilling and voicing his opinion on the matter.
He evento the alleged listing and told GQ magazine in itsDecember issue that he thought it was "pretty f--kin' funny."
But, a rep for the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, which oversees the state's homeland security department, dismissed the claim and went on to say that the list doesn't even exist.
"His name is not in any of our bulletins," Maria A. Smith, a rep for the agency told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "There is no list, we never even had a list."
