Adrien Brody

Drops $20,000

... On Monopoly Man

adrien_brody_alec_monopoly_rolls_royce_launchThere's a reason rich people buy expensive art ... they've run out of everything else to buy -- which is exactly how Adrien Brody blew $20,000 this week.

Sources tell TMZ, the actor stopped by a popular Hollywood art gallery called Lab Art on Tuesday to check out new works by famed street artist Alec Monopoly ... and he was so blown away by the paintings, he purchased 5 pieces worth roughly $20,000 total.

Adrien went to the gallery to check on his old Rolls-Royce which he donated to Alec, who turned it into an art piece ... and Adrien went nuts over several paintings.

Check out the Rolls in the pics.  Pretty cool actually.

As for Adrien -- looks like he just landed himself squarely on "Luxury Tax."

How can Brody be rich? All he's made are **** movies. Absolutely some of the worst. He's a great looking guy. If he'd made a few RomComs he could've written his own ticket financially. Now he gets script rejects from the likes of Stephen Dorff and Owen Wilson.

He donated his old car so this artist could use it in his work. Adrien also went back and supported the artist by buying some of his paintings. I think that's cool. Nice to read a normal celeb story from time to time. LOL!!

I guess ripping off other people's art and graphics makes you an artist these days.

Ok people no nose jokes. He's got a look that nobody else has and that's him. I give him credit for keeping his nose. It's like a beauty mark. With a regular nose he'd be a nobody. It's his distinguishing mark.
