As he finalizes his divorce from Danielle Spencer, Oscar-winner Russell Crowe is looking for a fresh start. 

Rather than throwing everything that reminds him of his ex-wife into a fire, Crowe will auction off some of his most cherished personal items in order to "create space for the future," he told Australia's Daily Telegraph.

Such items include mementos he kept from the sets of his most iconic movies, including Gladiator, Cinderella Man, L.A. Confidential and Master and Commander.

"The sale represents the dispersal of a highly personal collection that was assembled by Crowe over many years, including those shared with his former wife, Danielle Spencer," the Sotheby’s listing reads.

"The Russell Crowe Collection comprises important paintings by some of Australia’s most significant historic, modern and contemporary artists, furniture, movie memorabilia, musical instruments, watches and sporting memorabilia."

Over 200 items will be up for grabs on April 7, both Crowe's 54th birthday and wedding anniversary. Sotheby's Australia, which will hold the auction, estimates its total value may reach $2.8 million.
