Kristen Stewart earned $500,000 for charity in only 15 minutes. An unnamed Middle Eastern prince was so smitten with the “Twilight” actress that he shelled out half a million dollars to meet her.

Stewart was helping to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Sandy when, according to film producer Harvey Weinstein, he was approached by the ultra-wealthy Middle Eastern Prince about spending one-on-one time with the actress. He initially dismissed the requests, but Stewart soon caught wind of what happened and was actually willing to meet with the high-paying Prince. Weinstein then brokered a deal and arranged the meet-up.

“And Kristen sits with the guy for 15 minutes,” Weinstein told reporters on Sunday at the screening of the Hurricane Sandy benefit concert film12.12.12. He went on to say that the Prince paid up front in cash, and he and Stewart sat alone for 15 minutes in an office in Madison Square Garden, where the Hurricane Sandy benefit concert would later take place.

Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, Mick Jagger, Bruce Springsteen and other celebrities were also at the Sandy benefit, which raised an impressive $30 million for relief efforts.
