Got a lazy $500? Actor Russell Crowe is inviting you to bid on a leather jockstrap he wore in one of his films.
The Oscar-winning actor is clearing out more than two hundred pieces of memorabilia from his acting career, in what he is calling a “divorce auction,” following his split from partner Danielle Spencer.
And one of the items up for grabs is the brown suede leather “boxer’s protector” he wore in the 2005 film Cinderella Man, specifically the scene depicting the 1935 Heavy Weight Championship bout between James J. Braddock and Max Baer.
The items of Crowe’s are up for sale by auction house Sotheby’s and are due to go under the hammer on April 7 in Sydney.
Crowe’s jockstrap is accompanied by a letter from the actor stating his ownership, according to the auction listing.
“The sale represents the dispersal of a highly personal collection that was assembled by Crowe over many years, including those shared with his former wife, Danielle Spencer,” the Sotheby’s listing reads.
“The Russell Crowe Collection comprises important paintings by some of Australia’s most significant historic, modern and contemporary artists, furniture, movie memorabilia, musical instruments, watches and sporting memorabilia.”
