Angelina Jolie Buys Controversial Eclectic Art
Angelina Jolie doesn’t just spend her money helping the impoverished. No, she also spends hundreds of thousands of dollars for weird art pieces, according to Lloyd Grove of the New York Daily News.
Star magazine is reporting that the vamp and mother of three stopped by a Los Angeles warehouse and slapped down almost $400,000 on three pieces of art by controversial British Banksy.
‘A $226,000 painting – titled “Picnic” – depicts a white family of four merrily lunching under an umbrella on a red checked blanket while 15 starving Africans – including several children with distended bellies – look on.A $75,000 purchase – a white bust with a bleeding bullet hole in the forehead – was a particular favorite of Jolie’s. “She went nuts for that one,” an onlooker told the mag. “She told [her baby daddy], ‘I must have that one.'”
For another cool $75,000, she picked up a portrait of a man hit in the head with a custard pie.’
Angelina is a very complicated individual it would seem. Brad, good luck with “All that.”
