How Much Would You Pay for Russell Crowe's Jockstrap?
If you answered anything north of $7,000, you missed out — because that's what a leather jockstrap worn by Russell Crowe in the film "Cinderella Man" just went for at auction.
As part of a so-called "divorce auction" — Crowe and Danielle Spencer's divorce is nearly a done deal — Crowe auctioned off numerous items of personal memorabilia at a Sotheby's Australia sale Saturday, and People magazine reports the event brought in about $3.7 million.
The jockstrap went for $7,000, which probably surprised Crowe, who admitted he only put it into the sale as "a piece of whimsy and a bit of a gag."

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
In a tweet, Crowe crowed of his earnings, "... not a bad hourly rate for a 5 hour shift," before wishing fans a "happy and busy" day.
