Crowe and his soon-to-be ex-wife, actress Danielle Spencer separated nearly five years ago with their divorce due to be finalised any day now. To mark the occasion Crowe will be hosting an auction at Sotheby’s Australia called, “The Art of Divorce.” On his Facebook page, the actor shared the image above with the following information:

The date is a significant one as it’s Crowe’s 54th birthday and the couple’s 15th wedding anniversary.

Speaking to Australia’s Daily Telegraph Crowe said the auction was a mutual decision: “We’ve been separated over five years now, our divorce should be finalised around the time of the auction. Just as we collaborate on the upbringing of our kids, it’s easy for us to work together on something like this. I think she feels the same way I do in regards to just moving on things that help create space for the future. On the practical side, this collection probably equates to three rooms full of things I’ll no longer have to care for, document, clean, tune, and insure.”
Movie buffs will love the fact that they will be able to get their hands on items such as Denzel Washington and Ridley Scott chair backs from American Gangster as well as the Gladiator costumes, swords, a fully-functional replica Roman chariot, and life-sized prop horse from the blockbuster!
