We’ve seen some strange things auctioned off for charity before (including Justin Bieber‘s hair), but this might take the cake: “Twilight” director Catherine Hardwicke has announced that she’s considering auctioning off the bed in which Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart shared their first kiss.
As the story goes, Hardwicke involved Stewart with the casting process for the role of Edward Cullen in “Twilight,” as she knew that the two young stars would have to have tremendous chemistry. Stewart and Pattinson went through one of the scenes in “Twilight” in Hardwicke’s home for the audition, and shared their first kiss on the bed that Hardwicke still owns.
Okay, so it’s a little strange and personal and bordering on creepy, but it’s for a good cause: Hardwicke mentioned that if there’s enough interest in purchasing the bed that she’ll put it up for auction to benefit the Step Up Women’s Network. The charity helps teenage girls get through high school and into college with mentoring and internships in order to prepare them for successful careers.
As of now there aren’t any concrete plans for the auction, but my guess is that there are plenty of Twihards out there who would love to place a bid. Or, you know, maybe R-Pattz and K-Stew want to buy it for themselves as a memento. Either way, with the first part of the two-part finale to the series releasing in November, Twilight mania is at an all-time high…and if it raises some money for charity, I say go for it!
