It was a fun Thursday night for Jennifer Aniston! But a busy night for her checkbook!
At a Haiti charity auction hosted by Ben Stiller and David Zwirner, Jennifer sat front row with Justin Theroux to bid on an amazing painting by Glenn Ligon.
Justin was nice enough to handle the paddle swinging during the bidding.
The $450,000 price tag set a record for Ligon work. He better go see all of her movies now!
But Jen wasn't the only one spending a lot of money. Ben Stiller outbid others for works by Jeff Koons, Nate Lowman, and Martin Kippenberger.
And an Elizabeth Peyton drawing of Jay-Z went home with John McEnroe.
With all the celebrity presence, it made the evening pretty fun as far as auctions go.
An insider reports:
People were clapping and cheering, which rarely happens at art auctions. The auctioneer was right out of central casting, and she was joking with Ben in the front row
So what did Jennifer and Justin do after Christie's? They went to celebrate their new piece of wall decor by eating at one of their favorite restaurants — Il Cantinori.
Looks like things are pleasantly flowing for the it couple!
