According to E! Online's Marc Malkin, a kiss from Robert pulled in quite a hefty sum of money at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS 2009 benefit auction Thursday night in Cannes.
While on stage, movie mogul Harvey Weinstein reportedly joked that his daughters had changed their last name to Pattinson after seeing "Twilight," and then asked Pattinson to step up for charity. "
Harvey then suggested auctioning off an opportunity for someone's daughter to meet and get a kiss on the cheek from Pattinson," a partygoer revealed.
"There were two bidders who paid 20,000 euros each for their daughters to have that kiss." A 20,000-euro kiss from Pattinson is equivalent to around $55,000 U.S. dollars.
"Harvey put him on the spot, in a playful way," the source said. "And Rob agreed to it in his usual brooding, modest way."
