    It is quite the ego boost, isn't it? I'm practically a supermodel.

    Holy fuckballs. This has to be for a movie role.

    It better be an Oscar winner. But even so I don't think that's worth doing this to your body.

    Russell has been working hard to raise money for the NSW Royal Fire Service to pay back all the brigades who have been working so hard to save his property at Nana Glen. He auctioned off his old Rabbitohs hat for $400,000 and added another $105,000 of his own money. He has divided it up amongst the 20 stations that surround his property. (I can't believe someone paid $400k for a dirty old cap!) I belong to the North Coast Facebook group and people are pretty pleased with him at the moment.

    They didnít pay $400k for the hat - itís in the article you linked to

    ĒHundreds of thousands of dollars have been raised for the NSW Rural Fire Service after actor Russell Crowe put up a "slightly worn hat" - a South Sydney Rabbitohs' cap - for auction.Giving fans 24 hours to place their bids, the actor said he would sign and personalise the hat for the highest bidder, but little did he know that the donations would hit $400,000.


    The hat auction comes as NSW Rural Fire Service has warned residents to prepare for fire ahead of a hot and windy weekend.
    On Friday morning, Atlassian co-founder Mike Cannon-Brookes offered $100,000 for the cap, adding he would like Crowe to "sign it 'Today is the day' and add your name ... then find a kid affected by the bushfires and make his day by giving him the hat".


    Crowe said he would match Mr Cannon-Brookes' bid, donating $5000 to 20 NSW RFS brigades including Nana Glen, Woolgoolga, Coramba.
    Atlassian's other co-founder Scott Farquhar added on Twitter he would also "love to join the party (unless 3 is a crowd)! The RFS do amazing work. Thank you both for leading the way. $100k from my wife Kim and I."


    Ryan Smith, co-founder and chief executive of US software company Qualtrics, said he would match the three donations - bringing the total to $400,000.
    "I'm not from Australia but have offices and friends there. Painful to watch," he wrote on Twitter.


    Crowe wrote on social media: "I want to thank the volunteers all over the state and all over the country that work tirelessly to keep our communities safe."
    The actor's home in Nana Glen, 25 kilometres north-west of Coffs Harbour, was damaged by the fires this month.
    An RFS spokesman said overnight rain across northern NSW had hampered backburning efforts but they would continue throughout the day.
    By Friday morning, about 60 of the 147 fires across NSW were uncontained, with all of them at "advice" levels.Ē
