Russell Crowe Just Auctioned Off a Lot of His Stuff (Including a Leather Jock & a Dinosaur Skull)


A collection of ephemera relating to the film, “LA Confidential” (1997)
Estimate $1,500 – $2,500

Yes, Russell Crowe was selling off his stuff at a divorce-themed auction today in Sydney, which also happens to be his birthday and wedding anniversary.

At Sotheby’s Australia, Crowe has many things collected during his nine-year marriage to Danielle Spencer. The couple split in 2012.

The cover of the auction catalogue, titled Russell Crowe: The Art of Divorce, features Crowe raising a toast, looking vey Bond. Crowe posted on Twitter,

Apart from watching as an online bidder, you can just tune in as an observer as it will be live-stream on Facebook.

The auction is over now, you can see it live below. Hundreds of items were up for grabs, and come with descriptions of their role in the Oscar-winning actor’s personal or movie life. The eclectic mix includes, movie costumes like his breast plate and a working chariot from his star-making role in Gladiator and boxing gloves and a leather jock from his role in Cinderella Man.

A note on the Mercedes 2001 that was up for auction says,

One of Russell Crowe’s personal cars, this vehicle also served as one of the wedding cars on the day of his marriage to Danielle Spencer on 7 April 2003.

But the items on sale were not limited to movie or wedding mementos. There were also many watches, including a gold Rolex, pricey art, lots of sporting stuff, many, many guitars, motorcycles, a LOT of his wife’s very nice jewelry and a dinosaur skull. It was found in the Niobara Formation in Kansas and comes mounted in a glass case. Where did he get such a thing? From fellow A-lister, Leonardo DiCaprio, as one does. Estimate, $35,000-$45,000.

FYI, Crowe is worth around $95 million, so, this stuff is a drop in the bucket. Have a look.
