Despite initially denying that he was the one that bought Russell Crowe's jockstrap from the movie "Cinderella Man", John Oliver has now come clean and shared all of his new memorabilia with his "Last Week Tonight" viewers.

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.

After airing a clip showing a telephone bidder paying a whopping $7,000 for Crowe's jockstrap, Oliver then insisted, "The bad news is we didn't do it. I'm sorry it wasn't us, we didn't buy it..." before he immediately added: "We did, we absolutely did!"
