    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."

    Other celebrities in attendance at the AIDS benefit included Paris Hilton, Sharon Stone, Josh Hartnett, Elizabeth Hurley, and President Bill Clinton.
