Stroppy actor Russell Crowe is planning to donate his brain to
medical science. The Gladiator (2000) star, 38, has agreed to have his grey matter preserved at Australia's Sydney University after his death as part of a revolutionary experiment.
Scientists at the university are recruiting 1,000 talented or creative people to donate their brains for the project, which hopes to use the brain to tell what the major defining moments in the donor's life were. A pal of Russell's says, "He has had such a rich life and would love to benefit other people in sharing those experiences."
