Thursday’s episode of The Late Late Show, host James Corden asked his Oscar-winning guest to share something precious that the general public would not see. Saying that he had prepared a list of items specifically for this segment, Crowe slowly raised a special piece of jewelry he bought at a public art auction: the Grammy Award given to Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis and Roy Orbison for their album Class of ’55. The actor then talked about a special moment that he and one of his close friends shared with the trophy.
“Ed [Sheeran] has been here on the farm a few times and one night we are in the bar and he asked me where this Grammy of Johnny Cash is, “he said. I went to get him and he said, ‘You know what to do with the Grammys? ‘»
Crowe revealed that moments later, he and the singer poured Jack Daniels into the Cash Grammy and started taking pictures.
“It may be one of the best showbiz stories I have ever heard,” Corden replied to Crowe’s anecdote. “I bless you for sharing this. ”
During the segment, Crowe also celebrated the 20th anniversary of Gladiator and talked about the relaxed atmosphere behind the scenes during the filming of his upcoming thriller Disturbs, which will be released in theaters on July 10.
