According to Us Weekly, Jennifer Aniston is quite the altruistic art lover.
The actress reportedly made a hefty donation to help Haiti rebuild, buying a painting at Christie’s Artists for Haiti auction for $450,000.
Justin Theroux, 40, reportedly did the bidding on behalf of girlfriend Aniston, 42, landing an abstract piece by American artist Glenn Ligon at the charity auction Thursday. Jen wound up with "Stranger #44," a large oil, charcoal and graphite piece on canvas, estimated at $150,000 to $200,000.
"Aniston, who was in the room, clapped enthusiastically after [Theroux's] winning bid," reports Artinfo.com.
The Artists for Haiti auction, co-organized by Ben Stiller, featured donated pieces and raised a whopping $13,662,000 toward health and education initiatives for Haiti.
