Robert Pattinson: Auctions off kisses for $40,000 at Cannes benefit
Robert Pattinson has raised $40,000 to kiss two teenage girls.
Sources have thrown more light on this news of Robert Pattinson. According to them , the "Twilight" star auctioned off two "pecks on the cheek" at the star-studded amfAR charity benefit at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday night.
This twenty three year old Robert was sitting at a table with Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana at the lavish Hotel du Cap when movie mogul Harvey Weinstein gave suggestion that Pattinson should sell a smooch.
A fellow partygoer added, "Harvey joked from the stage that his daughters changed their last name to Pattison after they saw 'Twilight'.
He continued, "Harvey then suggested auctioning off an opportunity for someone's daughter to meet and get a kiss on the cheek from Pattinson. There were two bidders who paid $20,000 each for their daughters to have that kiss."
Robert Pattinson was shocked by the impromptu auction. However he was agreed to take part for raising money for charity.
A source continued, "Harvey put him on the spot, in a playful way. And Robert agreed to it in his usual brooding, modest way."
The proceeds will go to amfAR which is an international foundation for AIDS research.
Joshua Jackson, Diana Kruger, Josh Hartnett and Danny Glover also donated items, including a saxophone donated by former US President Bill Clinton, which sold for 130,000 dollars.
