Things are really serious! Jen Aniston and her boyfriend, Justin Theroux, bought a beautiful piece of art together — and it was almost half a million dollars!
It might just be us, but we’d never spend $450,000 on anything with another person if we didn’t expect to spend the rest of our lives with them! Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux reportedly paid big bucks for a beautiful abstract piece at Christie’s “Artists for Haiti” auction in New York City Sept. 22.
According to US Weekly, Justin, 40, was the one who actually bid on the painting by artist Glenn Ligon, which was actually estimated to be worth $150,000 to $200,000.
However, Jen, 42, and her new beau wanted to support the auction, which was co-organized by pal Ben Stiller, so they donated more than double the estimated worth!
Says a source, “Aniston, who was in the room, clapped enthusiastically after [Theroux’s] winning bid.”
The black and white painting, which is called “Stranger #44,” is large — 72″ by 60″ — and will look great in a modern space, like Jen and Justin’s new NYC apartment.
