What will the neighbors say? Russell Crowe, 57, last week gave his $25 million Finger Wharf apartment in Woolloomooloo a Hollywood-style upgrade by installing a Scandinavian wood barrel sauna on the balcony.

The towering structure is also largely visible to the public, no doubt prompting neighbors to wonder if they’ll catch a glimpse of Russell’s sauna sessions in the future.

The sauna, which can sell for more than $10,000, is known to have been installed last week before the actor started work on his next film Poker Face in Sydney.

Russell paid $14.35 million for the house in 2003 and took it off the market in 2017 despite an offer of about $25 million.

Russell gears up to turn Sydney into a Hollywood movie set for Poker Face this week.

The film will feature a high-speed chase into the Harbor Tunnel, as well as the $140 million penthouse atop James Packer’s Crown Residences and “a sprawling Point Piper mansion overlooking Sydney Harbour.”

Although the film was originally set in Miami, Florida, Russell reportedly demanded that the film be shot and set in Sydney.

according to Deadline, Poker Face tells the story of a tech billionaire named Jake (played by Russell) who gathers his childhood friends to his estate for what turns into a high-stakes poker game.

“Those friends have a love-hate relationship with the host, a master player/planner, and he’s come up with an elaborate plan to bring some justice to all of them,” Deadline reports.

In addition to Russell in the cast, Wu-Tang Clan frontman RZA will be, while Natalie Portman will be “all about a role.”
