We Now Know Who Actually Bought Stuff From Russell Crowe's Divorce Auction

We Now Know Who Actually Bought Stuff From Russell Crowe's Divorce Auction

Oliver, 40, had been taking a look at the last Blockbuster in Alaska before he mentioned Crowe's recent "The Art of Divorce" auction, which saw the actor sell off an array of artifacts from his career in the wake of his split from ex-wife Danielle. He wasn't sure how to get hold of Oliver or the show to say yes.

On Sunday, following a short segment about how the last few Blockbuster stores in Alaska are struggling to stay afloat, the comic addressed these rumors. Items for bidding included what one TV news talent called the "groin protector" Crowe wore in Cinderella Man.

They will be crowned Premier League champions if Manchester United fail to beat West Brom on Sunday afternoon. That, however, doesn't appear to have put a stop to things. "He is going to learn a lot from this".

"We did though", he said, before yelling the famous line from Crowe's "Gladiator": "Are you not entertained?". He did this as a prelude to an offer he hopes Blockbuster management can't refuse - Russel Crowe's jockstrap from the movie Cindarella Man, free of charge. The jockstrap used in the boxing film was reportedly worth a range from $500 to $600, according to broker Sotheby's who would be holding Crowe's auction. Over the course of 16 minutes, Oliver elucidates how last year's tax bill made it so that citizens pay more in taxes than corporations, how corporations have options for paying even less, and how all of this could have been avoided. "We did though. We absolutely did", he said, moments later. Because streaming services are extra expensive in Alaska, Blockbuster still reigns there, and Oliver promised that if Alaska's remaining Blockbuster contacted the show, they'd be able to display Crowe's memorabilia there. "Just call us in the next 48 hours and we will send this to you".
