SheWired.Com has reported that at an Oct. 22 charity event in San Francisco, when bidding for a trip to South Africa to meet Nelson Mandela stalled out at $37,000, South African native — and award-winning actress — Charlize Theron offered to throw in a “makeout session” with the winning bidder, an offer that managed to get the bid up to $140,000.
SheWired says Theron “took one for the team” when the winning bidder turned out to be a woman, and engaged in a girl-on-girl kiss that lasted “more than 20 seconds.”
My first thought when I saw this was, “Kudos to Ms. Theron” — not for being willing to kiss a girl; I mean, I consider getting to kiss a girl a real privilege, not a chore — but for being willing to kiss a stranger for charity. I wouldn’t do it.
My second thought was, how sad that people are more willing to pay big money to kiss Charlize Theron than to meet Nelson Mandela.
And, I admit, my third thought was to be jealous of the winning bidder, not just because she got to kiss Charlize Theron but because she had the $140,000 to spend that it took to get that kiss!
The event, by the way, was raising money for OneXOne, which delivers food and water to children around the globe.
