Gladiator armour sells for $96000

Russell Crowe on Fitzy & Wippa

A breastplate from his film Gladiator went for $125,000.

The 53-year-old actor certainly lent the shimmer of his celebrity to the Saturday night event by raising a cocktail toast in a bevelled glass on the cover of the Sotheby's Australia catalogue.

Good Morning Britain host and MailOnline columnist Piers Morgan secretly bid on two big-ticket items at Russell Crowe's multimillion-dollar "The Art Of Divorce" auction.

Russell even put in a surprise appearance at the event.

The biggest price so far has been A$135,000 for the Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World violin by Leandro Bislach.

Costume for the character Captain Jack Aubrey from Master and Commander (2003) - $115,000. 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. A mounted dinosaur skull of a mosasaur, found in Kansas, is expected to net between$35,000 and $40,000.

A leather pair of Dr. Martens boots from an earlier movie, "Romper Stomper", was purchased for $10,000.

We have a victor - Crowe in "Cinderella Man".

There are also important paintings by some of Australia's most significant historic and modern artists, including Sidney Nolan and Margaret Olley. For sports fans there was a bronze sculpture of cricketer Sir Donald Bradman. In an interview with Page Six, Sotheby's Australia Head of Arts and Design, Guy Cairnduff, said Crowe was intimately involved with the design of the auction.

The actor also went into detail about the Johnny Cash Grammy being auctioned, and the letter Cash wrote him after watching Gladiator three times on the film's opening weekend, and his regrets over never meeting the musician.

The auction labeled "The Art of Divorce" was held in Sydney on Saturday and attracted tons of spectators and buyers.

Guitars owned by actor Russell Crowe. "It was Crowe mania", Singer told the Seven Network on Sunday.

Asked why he was getting rid of the items, Russell said: 'Number one, I have a vast collection of things. He separated from singer Danielle Spencer in 2012. They have two sons: Charles Spencer Crowe (born 21 December 2003) and Tennyson Spencer Crowe (born 7 July 2006).
