Los Angeles: Producer Harvey Weinstein has revealed that he persuaded 'Twilight' star Kristen Stewart to have a chat with an unnamed prince in exchange for sizable donation.
Weinstein said that Stewart made a donation of USD 500,000 to charity by chatting with a prince for 15 minutes, reported Aceshowbiz.
The unnamed prince had approached the Hurricane Sandy relief organiser, saying that he would make donation if he could talk to the 'Twilight' actress. "How much?", Stewart asked Weinstein after which the producer negotiated the number
with the prince and the amount was raised to USD 500,000.
The money was paid in advance in form of cash. In addition to the Sandy storm relief, the actress contributed to donation for people who were affected by
devastating earthquake in Haiti in 2010.
The 23-year-old auctioned off herself by offering a chance to hang out with her at the Sundance Film Festival. Stewart also auctioned off several items and donated the money to fight child prostitution following a research about teenage
prostitute for her movie 'Welcome to the Rileys'.
Weinstein was at the Toronto International Film Festival to screen the Hurricane Sandy benefit concert film '12-12-12'.
