Actress Kristen Stewart secured a $500,000 (£330,000) donation for the Hurricane Sandy relief effort by simply sitting with a Middle Eastern prince for 15 minutes. Producer Harvey Weinstein reveals the prince approached him and organisers of the New York concert 12-12-12: The Concert for Sandy Relief, which benefited victims of the storm, about setting up a meeting with the Twilight actress in exchange for a sizeable donation. He then approached Stewart about the offer, to which she replied, "How much?" The agreed amount was eventually secured and Stewart obliged. Weinstein says, "Kristen (sat) with the guy for 15 minutes." Hurricane Sandy struck America's East Coast last October (12), affecting several states including New York and New Jersey.
