Oscar-winning actor Russell Crowe shocked staff at a British charity shop recently after he walked in and made a $1,500 (?1,000) donation.
The Gladiator star is currently in Britain filming a new Robin Hood movie but took a break from his schedule to visit the Cancer Research store in Sunningdale, Berkshire, and made a generous contribution to the cancer charity, reports imdb.com.
"We couldn't believe it, Russell Crowe came in and gave us the money. We had been hoping to catch a glimpse of him. We were all a bit star-struck, but it was lovely to meet him and he stopped and had a bit of a chat with us," said a volunteer at the shop.
