Russell Crowe held a divorce auction in Redfern, Australia, yesterday, which he called ‘The Art of Divorce’ in a bid to make some cash.
The 54-year-old actor, perhaps most famous for his role in blockbuster hit The Gladiator as well as a A Beautiful Mind, aimed to sell memorabilia from his career.
The aim of the event was to fund his divorce from his wife Danielle Spencer.
Divorce is an expensive path to tread, and Hollywood divorces are notorious for their often huge payouts to spouses.
Russell sold collectibles from movies including Doc Martens from Romper Stomper, which sold for around £7,000.
His breast piece from the movie Gladiator sold for a whopping £89,000.
Russell was at the event himself, auctioning off a 1890 Milanese violin crafted by master luthier Leandro Bisiach Sr from the film Master and Commander, which sold for £96,000.
Twitter users piled in to wish Russell luck, and one wrote: “Joking aside, it’s great to hear from you. I hope your auction went as well as you hoped. I’ve always got a pint with your name on it in London.”
Russell replied: “Cheers man. Be happy and busy.”
After the auction Russell tweeted to his followers: “The Art of Divorce. In case anyone is interested … $ 3.7m at the coal face and around $ 350k of conversations ongoing … and a bunch of stuff I didn’t really want to sell coming home.
“Not a bad hourly rate for a 5 hour shift. Hope you are happy and busy.” [sic]
