Russell Crowe 'divorce auction': memorabilia sold

The 53-year-old Oscar-winning actor is holding an auction of almost three rooms' worth of his belongings through Sotheby's Australia, in an auction exhibit he's calling "The Art of Divorce".

"Divorce has its way of making you really examine the things that are essential in life - and the things that are not", Crowe said in a statement announcing the auction, reports the Daily Mail.

"He basically curated it", Cairnduff said.

One buyer stumped up $115,000 for a costume Crowe wore as Captain Jack Aubrey in the 2003 film Master and Commander, but it was a prop from that movie Crowe said was "very dear to my heart".

The auction opened on Saturday, which is his wedding anniversary and is also his 54th birthday, months after he finalised his divorce that leaves Danielle with their $11 million house and a rumoured $20 million payout.

A fully functioning replica Roman chariot from the film Gladiator sold for $65,000.

Mounted Mosasaur skull, late Cretaceous period - $65,000.

A pair of black leather wrist cuffs from the same film were also snatched for $32,000, while two life-sized prop horses were also up for grabs.

Actor Russell Crowe arrives for the Australian premiere of his movie "The Mummy" in Sydney. It will be sold with a letter from Russell Crowe "stating his ownership".

The auction, which featured the sale of movie memorabilia, Australian art, musical instruments, his ex wife's jewellery and cars, saw Crowe net a staggering $3.7million.

"As all collectors might do at some time, I have occasionally laughed at myself and wondered if my collecting passion has slipped into hoarding".

Among items he admitted he struggled to part with, Crowe pointed to the concert violin, made in Milan in 1890, he used in duets with his friend, ship's surgeon Stephen Maturin, in Master and Commander. 'And I thought to myself while I'm in the middle of doing that.

Items purchased have to be picked up by 5pm on Monday. It is not known if Sheeran was the successful bidder for that item. The couple have two sons, Charles, 14, and Tennyson, 10. "It was Crowe-mania", he told television broadcaster Channel Seven Sunday.

"Once I commit to something, I stick with it, so you never know..."

After a nine-year marriage and a subsequent six-year separation, the Oscar victor and the singer/songwriter are making it official by signing the divorce papers.
