Russell Crowe is in Berkshire to film Robin Hood with Ridley Scott
Hollywood star Russell Crowe visited a Berkshire charity shop where he made a £1,000 donation.
The Oscar-winning Gladiator actor, who is filming Robin Hood, walked into the Cancer Research UK shop in Sunningdale, near Ascot, where he joined a queue.
The actor, 45, then chatted to staff inside while on a break from shooting scenes in nearby Virginia Water.
Manager Julia Deane told the BBC: "He comes to the cafe next door because he's filming nearby."
She said: "He just came into the shop and the lady at the till was serving someone else.
"She didn't recognise him. He asked if we took donations and she told him that we do in the back of the shop.
"She gave him the book to fill in his name and he wrote Russell Crowe."
The £110m Ridley Scott remake of Robin Hood also stars Cate Blanchett as Maid Marian and is set to be released in 2010.
