Warhol was impulse buy for Grant
British actor Hugh Grant was drunk when he bought the Andy Warhol painting of Dame Elizabeth Taylor which made him a $17.6 million profit. The "Notting Hill" star decided to pay an impromptu visit to see his brother in New York on a Concorde flight with his father after a boozy meal.

He says, "I'd been having a drunken dinner with my father the night before and I said, 'We ought to go see my brother Jamie. You know, the Concorde's amazing. We had lunch, drank a lot of beer. And I was thinking about some stuff in the Sotheby's auction and I saw the Liz Taylor."
