Jennifer Aniston took to her Instagram to express her excitement about having a black and white photo of her, in the nude, included in an ongoing auction dubbed RADArt4AID, which aims to raise funds for the coronavirus pandemic.

Aniston thanked her friend, photographer Mark Seliger, for including her photo in the auction, which also includes photos of ex-husband Brad Pitt, Leonardo di Caprio, Tom Hanks, Billie Eilish, Julia-Louis Dreyfus, Barack Obama, Snoop Dogg, and Dr. Dre, among others.

According to the Instagram post of Aniston, all proceeds of the photo will go to the National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics, which is providing free testing for the coronavirus disease.

In the photo taken by Seliger in 1995, a naked Aniston with her signature cropped hairstyle gazed at the camera in a pose that cleverly hid the intimate parts of her body.

She also posted a copy of the photo and a photo of it being prepared on her Instagram.

Seliger, who sets up an annual portrait studio in the Oscar Party of the Vanity Fair, had partnered with the Red Carpet Advocacy (RAD) and Christie's auction house for the fundraising, as his way of giving back in this pandemic times.

The auction started last May 28 and will run until June 12.

Vanity Fair reported that Seliger felt that he could contribute to the ongoing pandemic crisis with his photos. And, by doing so, he can also engage people who might be bored with the lockdown or people also looking to pay it forward.

Aniston has been quarantining in her home in Beverly Hills.

It was announced in February that Aniston was set to reunite with her friends, David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, and Lisa Kudrow, for the reunion of the TV hit sitcom Friends.

However, like so many other things, the coronavirus pandemic had temporarily shelved the project.
