  • Jimmy Kimmel is a notorious prankster, but it turns out his biggest one yet was only an accident. Contrary to reports, it turns out the comedian was only joking about purchasing the nearly $2 million nude Bea Arthur portrait. On Friday, comedian Jeffrey Ross tweeted that the late night host had given him the painting, which sold on May 15 for $1.9 million to an anonymous buyer in New York City. "Biggest surprise of my life. Thank you @jimmykimmel - the most generous guy in the world!" Ross wrote. "Bea is watching over all of us, but especially you," Kimmel responded.

    A rep for Kimmel told The Hollywood Reporter that the painting Ross was photographed with was only a prop from Jimmy Kimmel Live!
