NEW YORK, Nov. 13 (UPI) -- British actor Hugh Grant could make back nearly 10 times what he paid for an Andy Warhol painting when he sells it at auction, the Daily Telegraph said.

"Liz," a 1963 silk-screen portrait of film icon Elizabeth Taylor, is slated to be sold at an upcoming Christie's auction of post-war and contemporary art in New York.

The painting is expected to go for upwards of $35 million.

Grant, the star of "Sense and Sensibility" and "American Dreamz," paid about $4 million for it at a Sotheby's auction in 2001, the Telegraph said.
