Twilight star Robert Pattinson was definitely a good sport last night when he put himself up on the auction block to help raise money for the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS fund. The actor was in Cannes for the annual film festival, and clearly showed embarrassement over having to endure a rising bidding war for a meet and greet — and a kiss on the cheek. Eventually, two bidders paid $20K each for the 23-year-old’s lip service.
Also up for grabs was one of those ridiculous Chanel-branded Segway scooters (of which Diane Kruger almost fell off of), Bill Clinton’s personal Alpine Alto saxophone (which went for an incredible $130K!), and a joking strip-tease from Josh Hartnett. Fortunately for him, bidding never got high enough. Perhaps they should have asked Robert Pattinson instead.
Proceeds from the auction support amfAR’s work which includes AIDS research, HIV prevention, treatment education and sound AIDS-related public policy. To find out how you can support amfAR, visit www.amfar.org. Check out the video of Pattinson being auctioned below:
