Harvey Weinstein told the story while promoting his Hurricane Sandy benefit concert film, “12.12.12.” From The New York Times:
One story involved the actress Kristen Stewart. Mr. Weinstein described persuading her to accept an offer from a Middle Eastern prince, who said he would make a large contribution to the Sandy relief effort if she would speak with him.
“How much?” Ms. Stewart asked, according to Mr. Weinstein.
He checked with the prince, who proposed a figure, which Mr. Weinstein promptly raised to $500,000.
The money was delivered in advance, in cash, Mr. Weinstein said.
Mr. Dolan locked it up in Madison Square Garden, he said. “And Kristen sits with the guy for 15 minutes.”
As a huge Twilight fan, I hear the guy promised to throw in an extra $100K if K-Stew would do her constipated face.
