Eye View Hollywood, Jennifer Anniston Likes Stranger #44, Until Stranger #45 Comes Around

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″ 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.

When asked, Ligon stated that Stranger #44 was stranger than #43 but probably not as much as #45 will be.
