The actress and her beau, Justin Theroux, are the highest bidders at a celeb auction.
Jennifer Aniston was the winning buyer at Christie’s glitzy “Artists for Haiti” auction in NYC on Thursday — where beau Justin Theroux did the bidding on her behalf.
Actor-screenwriter Theroux, 40, helped his love, 42, snag American artist Glenn Ligon’s “Stranger #44,” an abstract 2011 work of oil, charcoal and graphite on canvas that seems to match his downtown hipster tastes.
At the auction, “Stranger #44″ (pictured with artist Glenn Ligon and Thelma Golden, Director and Chief Curator of The Studio Museum in Harlem) was estimated at $150,000 to $200,000.
But Aniston helped shatter the record for sales of Ligon’s work, spending a whopping $450,000 on the 72″ by 60″ painting, an Artists for Haiti rep confirms to Us.
Reports Artinfo.com: “Aniston, who was in the room, clapped enthusiastically after [Theroux’s] winning bid.”
Benefiting health and education initiatives for Haiti, The “Artists for Haiti” auction — artists donated their works for the cause — was co-organized by Ben Stiller, and raised $13,662,000.
After the auction, Stiller, 40, and his wife Christine Taylor hung out with Theroux and Aniston for a late dinner at Il Cantinori. “They seemed to be having a lot of fun with Ben and his wife, like old friends,” a witness said. “Ben paid for everyone,” the witness adds.
Led Zeppelin were an English rock band formed in 1968 and consisted of guitarist Jimmy Page, singer Robert Plant, bassist / keyboardist John Paul Jones and drummer John Bonham. With their heavy, guitar-driven blues rock sound, Led Zeppelin regularly cited as one of the forefathers of heavy metal and hard rock, although the band’s individualistic style drew from many sources and transcends any one genre of music. Led Zeppelin did not release songs from their albums as singles in Britain, as they preferred to establish the concept of album-oriented rock.
Led Zeppelin disbanded after Bonham’s death in 1980 but will continue to be held in high regard for their artistic achievements, commercial success and broad influence. The band is widely considered to be one of the most successful, innovative and influential bands in the history of rock music. Led Zeppelin has sold over 200 million albums worldwide, according to some sources, while other sources indicate sales of more than 300 million records, including 111.5 million certified units in the U.S., making them one of the world’s best-selling music artists through the ages, as well the second best-selling band ever in the U.S.
They have had all their original studio albums reach the top 10 on the Billboard album chart in the U.S., with six reaching the number one place. Rolling Stone magazine has described Led Zeppelin as “the heaviest band ever”, “the greatest band in the 70s” and “without doubt one of the most enduring bands in rock history.” Similarly, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which described the band in 1970 as “as influential in this decade as the Beatles were in the previous one^.
