Hollywood actress Jennifer Aniston has decided to auction off one of her nude portraits that was taken way back in 1995 in order to provide for the coronavirus relief fund.
The actress has teamed up with photographer Mark Seliger to auction off the picture that features Aniston seated with legs placed in a manner that it covers parts of her body. “My dear friend @markseliger teamed up with @radvocacy and @christiesinc to auction 25 of his portraits – including mine – for COVID-19 relief. 100% of sales proceeds of this portrait will go to @NAFClinics, an organization which provides free coronavirus testing and care nationwide to the medically underserved,” Aniston’s post on Instagram read. Seliger will also be auctioning off portraits of 25 other celebrities, including Leonardo DiCaprio and Oprah Winfrey. “The first time I met Jennifer Aniston I knew she was going to be a big star. It was uncanny — you thought you knew her, or at least wished you knew her,” Seliger reportedly mentioned in an interview. Further talking about his experience working with the ‘Friends’ star, the photographer mentioned, “I was given an assignment to photograph the cast of ‘Friends’ and they were still a little stunned at how quickly the show had taken off. There was a wonderful stylist, a massive ball of energy, named Chris McMillan who was responsible for the famous ‘Rachel’ cut.”
“Immediately after the shoot I recommended Jennifer for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, which of course she got. Since then we’ve worked together many times — she’s incredibly loyal and still as lovely as the first time I met her,” Seliger further added.
