Gladiator armour sells for $96000

Gladiator armour sells for $96000

Russell split from his wife Danielle five years ago, and chose to sell off their belongings and bring closure to their life together. "It was Crowe mania", Singer told the Seven Network on Sunday.

The famous breastplate worn by Russell in "Gladiator" sold for a whopping $125,000, while its matching wrist cuffs sold for $32,000, a wooden sword for $20,000 and a metal one for $70,000, $5,000 more than a chariot from the film.

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.

The movie paraphernalia includes a replica Roman chariot from the "Gladiator" and a leather sketchbook used by Crowe's character in "3:10 to Yuma". About 200 picture theaters, props from some of the most well-known movies, including Gladiator, Master and Commander, LA Confidential and The Insider, went under the hammer.

His Master and Commander "dress blues" costume later fetched $115,000 AUD or $88,000 Dollars.

Guests were treated to a recital of a piece from Master and Commander by Australian Youth Orchestra musician Bridget O'Donnell. The instrument sat on his desk in Sydney since 2002 (it was made in 1890) and needs to be played in concert halls around the world.

The most expensive item sold in the auction was 1960 painting The Suitor, by Charles Blackman, which was bought for $360,000.

Speaking with Daily Mail Australia, the 53-year-old presenter said he was determined to acquire the famous auction pieces after scouring the Hollywood star's list.

Auction house Sotheby's conducted the bidding process.

The brown leather boxer's jockstrap from "Cinderella Man" was expected to attract Aus$500-Aus$600 but sold for Aus$7,000. Another buyer paid $65,000 for a mounted Mosasaur skull. The items had an 85 percent clearance rate, and all winning bids were topped with a 22 percent commission fee.

In case you hadn't heard, you can get your hands on the strap that was on Russell Crowe's jock - if you have the coin! Titled "The Art of Divorce", it pictures a smiling, tuxedo-clad Crowe brandishing a whiskey tumbler on the catalog cover and came about, because he decided "to turn something that was a little bit bleak into something joyful".
