Russell Crowe nets millions from 'divorce auction'

09 April, 2018, 00:42 | Author: Chad Mckenzie
  • The armour that Crowe wore during Gladiator is also included in the colection

The date - April 7 - is significant to the actor as it is both his birthday and wedding anniversary.

There were also unusual items such as a plaster cast of Muhammad Ali's face, a life size prop of a horse and a brown leather jockstrap worn by Crowe in Cinderella Man with a winning bid of $7000.

Among the pricier "stuff" that was snapped up: the armour he wore for his Oscar-winning role in "Gladiator", valued at between $20,000-$30,000, was purchased for AU$135,000 (the Australian dollar is almost on par with the Canadian dollar), while the rare 128-year-old Leandro Bislach violin he played in "Master and Commander" sold for AU$135,000. A replica Roman chariot from the same movie in which Crowe played the general-turned-gladiator Maximus, thought to be worth up to AU$10,000, was sold for AU$65,000.

Crowe's cousin - actor Russell Crowe - auctioned off 227 lots to fund his divorce from Australian actress Danielle Spencer, which includes memorabilia from the former Black Caps captain's career.

India outplayed Samoa 26-4 in the men's Pairs Sectional Play Round 4, while women's Fours Sectional Play team beat England 21-9. There's plenty of action to get to today, including the distribution of 22 gold medals, so let's dive straight in.

A breastplate worn by Crowe in his Oscar-winning efficiency bought for AU$125,000 (£68,246) at Sotheby's Australia, having been predicted to fetch between $20,000 (£10,919) and $30,000 (£16,379).

He then urged bidders wanting to buy an 1890 violin used in 2003 drama "Master and Commander" to "lend it to a young musician so it carries on and starts to play in the concert halls around the world".

The auction followed Crowe's divorce from Danielle Spencer.

While six-figure sums were dropped for a handful of artworks - including $360,000 for a 1960 Charles Blackman - other items were far less orthodox.

Russell told the boys they aren't the only Go Fund Me Page trying to secure the Gladiotor chariot, as reported in radioinfo yesterday - there are a group of history teachers also trying to buy it. The costume he wore for that same movie wasn't far behind, sold for $115,000.

The pair sold for 10,000 Australian dollars, while Sotheby's had anticipated between 10,000 and 15,000 Australian dollars.

Singer said a handful of items were passed in, namely a Grammy won by Johnny Cash and others in 1986 and a 2008 customised South Sydney Rabbitohs chopper motorcycle.

All bids attracted a commission of 22 per cent.
