'Twilight's' Robert Pattinson offers his cheeks for charity

Apparently Twilight star Robert Pattinson's reportedly lax hygiene hasn’t dimmed his allure to tween girls. At AmFar’s Cinema Against AIDS event in Cannes on Thursday, he graciously offered up his cheeks to the highest bidder, reports the Associated Press. Two people paid about $28,000 apiece for the pecks on the pale one’s porcelain face. The act of charity was apparently instigated by movie magnate Harvey Weinstein, who joked that his daughters had changed their last name to Pattinson. He then asked Pattinson to step up for charity, according to E! Online. Pattinson, who has previously been a Juice* subject because his on-set colleagues couldn’t take his body odor, wasn’t the only celeb who pulled in big bucks. Former President Bill Clinton offered up his signed alto sax and it pulled in $180,000, according to the AP.

MOST ECLECTIC GUEST LIST EVER? Sharon Stone hosted the 16th annual event late Thursday at the exclusive Hotel du Cap on the French Riviera. Annie Lennox entertained about 800 guests who included Paris Hilton, model Claudia Schiffer, director Terry Gilliam, rapper 50 Cent and scientist James Watson, one of the discoverers of DNA.
