Russell said that the conversation started casually as the Titanic actor, Leonard DiCaprio told him about the Dinosaur’s head. Leonard already had one but another was soon coming up in the market and he wanted that too. The Titanic actor was trying to sell this one and a little tipsy Russell took it upon himself to make sure that it happens. He recounted the exchange for Stern saying
[DiCaprio] started the conversation, he’s like, ‘I got this one, but there’s another one coming on the market that I really want so I’m trying to sell this one,’ and I said, ‘Well, I’ll buy it.’ I said ‘How much you want for it?’ He was pretty cool about it, he said, ‘Just give me what I paid for it,’ and I think he paid 30, 35 grand for it,”.

Crowe later sold the dinosaur head that he brought in the year 2018. It was sold in the auction that he had set up to pay for his divorce. Russell divorced Danielle Spencer in the same year. The actor said that skull was maybe of a Mosasaur, though he was not sure about that fact.
However, the purchase was not as absurd and out-of-the-box as it may appear. Crowe said that he brought it for a reason. He explained
Part of the reason for buying it is that when I did buy it around 2008, 2009, my kids, particularly my oldest, were fascinated [with] dinosaurs, so I said, ‘Here you go, here’s one for the playroom”
