‘Twilight’ star Kristen Stewart raises $500K for Sandy victims, ‘talks’ with Saudi prince for 15 minutes
Kristen Stewart raised $500,000 from an unnamed Middle Eastern prince for a good cause.
Movie head Harvey Weinstein divulged the news to reporters at the Toronto International Film Festival screening of 12.12.12, the Hurricane Sandy benefit concert movie.
According to Weinstein, the prince paid the large sum in order to spend 15 minutes with Stewart, reports Us Weekly.
The Twilight star was intrigued with the offer and reportedly asked Weinstein how much the royal was offering, which led him to come to a pricey agreement with the prince in exchange for a chat with the 23-year-old actress.
“And Kristen sits with the guy for 15 minutes,” Weinstein said of the deal he brokered, which was a substantial donation made to the Sandy relief effort.
The unnamed prince paid in advance to the meeting with Stewart at Madison Square Garden.
With the help of other A-list celebs like Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, Mick Jagger and Bruce Springsteen, the fundraiser raised a total which exceeded in $30 million.
