Could she be wearing any less clothing?
Jennifer Aniston is putting her 1995 nude portrait by Mark Seliger on the auction block to raise money for coronavirus relief.
The actor shared the announcement on Instagram with footage of the celebrity photographer working in his darkroom on that very photo.
The iconic black-and-white image depicts Aniston seated cross-legged, strategically covering much of her body. The pair worked together when Seliger was assigned to shoot the entire “Friends” cast, which had premiered the previous year.
“My dear friend @markseliger teamed up with @radvocacy and @christiesinc to auction 25 of his portraits — including mine :) — for COVID-19 relief,” Aniston, 51, wrote on Saturday. The post has now been liked by 1.2 million people.
The current bid on the portrait is up to $6,500 (£5,200). All proceeds from the sale will go to the National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics, which “provides free coronavirus testing and care nationwide to the medically underserved,” according to Aniston.
The Instagram account for NAFC Clinics responded to Aniston’s announcement on their page. “Thankful to @jenniferaniston for selecting the NAFC as her charity of choice in the @radvocacy @markseliger auction!” they wrote.
Pal Rita Wilson commented on Aniston’s now-viral post, “Beautiful photo! Beautiful babe.”
Said Robin Wright, “A true beauty . . . inside and out!”
“Look at sweet baby you!” added Olivia Wilde.
