At the OneXOne charity gala Thursday night in San Francisco, Charlize Theron auctioned off a kiss for an incredible $140,000 — to a woman.

The lip service was a last-minute addition to a South Africa/World Cup package she was auctioning. When bidding stalled at $37,000, well below the $280,000 that Jeremy Piven had just raised, Theron upped the ante. From US Weekly,

“For f*** sake! You can do better,” she tells attendees. “There is no way I am leaving here with Jeremy Piven getting a higher bid. I’ve got t**** for God’s sake.” To sweeten the pot, she offered up a 7-second kiss for $130,000 to a male bidder. “Swine flu is going around. This is high risk kissing!” she told him. After one man bid $135,000, a woman upped the stakes to $140,000 — ascending the stage for a 20-second smooch as the audience counted down.
