How much is a kiss with big screen beauty Charlize Theron worth? Apparently, about $140,000 to one lucky woman.
The Oscar-winning actress took part in the OneXOne charity event on Thursday night in San Francisco, where she took the stage to auction off a two-week trip to her native South Africa to watch soccer’s World Cup in summer 2010.
While the trip itself was a nice prize, the winning bidder also received other extra item for her $140,000 donation – a liplock with the Oscar winner.
And the woman certainly got her money’s worth — the two embraced and kissed onstage for nearly 25 seconds.
Charlize was at the event to help raise money for the Charlize Theron African Outreach Project, which is teaming with the OneXOne Foundation to bring soccer fields and clean water to the children of South Africa by 2010, which is when the World Cup will be hosted there.
Other celebrities on hand at the event included Jeremy Piven, Josh Groban, Carlos Santana, Laila Ali and David Arquette.
At one point during the auction, Piven also jumped onstage and encouraged two guests to bid $140,000 each for a walk-on role on the hit HBO show, “Entourage.”
The OneXOne gala was supposed to be hosted by Matt Damon, however as previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, the actor was forced to pull out of the event due to a family emergency.
Proceeds from the auction will benefit various organizations worldwide aimed at improving and preserving the lives of children.
