    Going once, going twice...sold to the famous actress and her hot new boyfriend!

    We mentioned yesterday that Jennifer Aniston and her man Justin Theroux attended a Haitian Art auction in New York City to benefit Artists for Haiti at Christie's, and now we learn that the duo snagged a pretty pricey abstract piece.

    How much exactly?

    We're talkin' something like $450,000!

    According to Us Weekly, Theroux took charge of the bidding and helped his lady snag American artist Glenn Ligon's "Stranger #44," an abstract 2011 work of oil, charcoal and graphite on canvas.

    The piece had been valued at between $150,000 and $200,000, but Aniston helped dramatically increase sales of Ligon's work, spending more than double that amount on the 6 foot tall painting.

    "Aniston, who was in the room, clapped enthusiastically after [Theroux's] winning bid," according to ArtInfo.com.

    Aw, aren't they just the cutest?
