Charlize Theron kisses woman for $140,000



Tbd-charlizetheron102609 How much does it cost to plant a nice, long smooch on Charlize Theron? The going rate is $140,000 — and that’s if she’s doing it for charity! The bright side is, she doesn’t care if you’re a woman.

The 34-year-old locked lips with a female bidder at a gala for children’s charity OneXOne in San Francisco last week, Us reports. Bidding had stalled at $37,000 on a travel package that included World Cup tickets, a safari and a meeting with Nelson Mandela after Jeremy Piven pulled in $280,000 (huhsaywhaaaaa?) for a similar deal.

So Charlize did what needed to be done: she threw her lips in the mix. “For f--- sake! You can do better,” Theron told the crowd. “There is no way I am leaving here with Jeremy Piven getting a higher bid. I’ve got t--- for God’s sake.”

After a couple guys bid up to $135,000, the lucky lady plunked down the winning bid, ascended the stage and collected her prize as the crowd counted down.

“My boyfriend is not here tonight,” Charlize joked during the auction. Don’t worry, Char, we think Stuart Townsend’s real problem will be that somebody dropped a quarter-mil for Piven.
