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

Yep, John Oliver Just Bought The 'Cinderella Man' Jockstrap From Russell Crowe's Sydney Auction

John Oliver Donated Russell Crowe's Old Jockstrap To One Of The Last Surviving Blockbusters

"It was my jock strap when I won the heavyweight championship of the world as the character James J. Braddock in the film 'Cinderella Man, '" Crowe told Good Morning Britain. The auction, which Crowe called "The Art of Divorce", was as one might imagine, a cleaning house sale in the aftermath of his divorce.

Fast forward several weeks to the date of the auction, where someone reportedly purchased that jockstrap for $7,000.

As you may have already heard, Russell Crowe generated quite a few headlines recently when he held a 'divorce auction' to raise money for just that - his divorce from wife Danielle Spencer. 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. Oliver noted that of the four independently-owned Blockbuster stores left in America, three are located in Alaska.

"The bad news is, we didn't do it", Oliver said. "I'm sorry it wasn't us, we didn't buy it..." before he immediately added: "We did, we absolutely did!"

In addition to the jockstrap from Cinderella Man, the show also bought a robe and shorts from the same film.

However, these items may not be with Oliver for long. 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.

'To the manager of the only remaining Blockbuster in Anchorage, Alaska: "Just call us in next 48 hour and we will send it to you", Oliver announced.
