How much is a kiss with Oscar-winning screen siren Charlize Theron worth? About 140 smacks!
South African-born actress Charlize Theron auctioned off a kiss in Hollywood last night and the winning bidder was a woman!
The 34-year-old Monster star took part in a live auction during a gala for the charity OneXOne Thursday in San Francisco. She was initially selling a 2010 trip to South Africa that included World Cup tickets, a safari and a meet-and-greet with former President Nelson Mandela — but she raised the stakes after bidding stalled at $37,000, far less than Jeremy Piven had just raised. To sweeten the pot a bit, she offered up a seven-second kiss for $130,000 to a male bidder, but a woman in the audience quickly bettered the deal with a $140,000 bid in exchange for a peck that lasted approximately twenty seconds.
“My boyfriend is not here tonight,” Charlize joked of long-time beau Stuart Townsend.
